Mumbai is the last leg on The Joshua Tree Tour 2019 -- named after the band’s album.
It was a starry night in Mumbai as almost the entire Bollywood turned up for the first-ever live performance of Irish band U2 in India on Sunday.
Arriving the firsts were Deepika Padukone and Ranveer Singh who came hand in hand. Then came Hrithik Roshan and his family, Diana Penty, Neha Dhupia, Soha Ali Khan and sisters Malaika Arora and Amrita Arora.
The stars took to their social media profiles to share their photos from the concert. Just like everyone else around, Bollywood was clearly star-struck with the band.
Hrithik attended the concert with sons Hridaan, Hrehaan and ex-wife Sussanne Khan. Sussanne shared a happy picture of them and wrote, “For the ‘Ones’ who taught us the meaning of lyrics, the ‘mysterious ways’ that life has to ‘ tear down the walls,... ‘ taking us to a place ‘where the streets didn’t need names.. ‘ the kids of the 90’s could have never been half of what we are, WITHOUT YOU... BONO we grew through U!! Thank you for being U2 @u2 #musicmakestheworldgoround.”

Mumbai is the last leg on The Joshua Tree Tour 2019 -- named after the band’s album. They performed some of their most popular numbers like 'With Or Without You', 'Where The Streets Have No Name' and 'I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For' from their 1987 album The Joshua Tree. AR Rahman joined band members Bono, The Edge, Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen Jr on stage and performed his single Ahimsa.
