Concert goers at Snow Patrol's Ward Park 3 concert got a shock when U2's Bono appeared on stage.

The Dubliner appeared alongside Gary Lightbody and co to perform his band's iconic hit 'One'.

Those at the show reported it was in tribute to the relationship between Northern Ireland and the Republic.

"No them, there is only us," he sang to the crowd.

Earlier the crowd had enjoyed stellar performances from Foy Vance, Two Door Cinema Club and Ash among others.

"What a moment," said UTV reporter Judith Hill, "total surprise move - Bono just strolls on stage with Snow Patrol in Bangor."

Also during their set Snow Patrol paid tribute to the murdered journalist Lyra McKee during their performance of Take Back the City.

Former Mayor of Ards and North Down Andrew Muir described it as a "truly memorable" night.

"A night I'll never forget! So proud to call this place home!" he tweeted.
