Sitting up in the stands in their VIP seats, Eve shared a snap with her family, with Bono seen grinning in the background. ‘When the 1D tune drops’ she captioned the post. 

The actress then shared a snap with her brother John, 21, joking: ‘He hates me.’

Sharing another selfie she added: ‘Hates me so much’.

Eve was previously spotted hanging out with Harry and his girlfriend Olivia Wilde as she showed them the sights of her home town of Killiney ahead of Harry’s gig.

The trio headed to Vico Baths for a swim on Monday night, much to the surprise of locals. 

Actress Eve, who has appeared in big screen movies such as Robin Hood, has been friends with actor turned director Olivia for years. 

Harry has been wowing audiences across the world with his Love On Tour show, which will take him around the world until March 2023.

Bono meanwhile announced last month that he is set to release a memoir titled Surrender: 40 Songs, One Story this November.

The book, named after a song on U2’s 1983 album War, will be composed of 40 chapters – all named after the band’s hits – and will each feature original drawings by the musician.

Bono, whose real name is Paul Hewson, will chronicle his childhood growing up in Dublin – including the death of his mother when he was 14 – as well as his rise to fame with U2 and his activism against HIV/AIDS and poverty. 

In a statement, he said: ‘When I started to write this book, I was hoping to draw in detail what I’d previously only sketched in songs. 

‘The people, places, and possibilities in my life. Surrender is a word freighted with meaning for me.

‘Growing up in Ireland in the seventies with my fists up (musically speaking), it was not a natural concept. 

‘A word I only circled until I gathered my thoughts for the book. I am still grappling with this most humbling of commands. In the band, in my marriage, in my faith, in my life as an activist. 

‘Surrender is the story of one pilgrim’s lack of progress . . . With a fair amount of fun along the way.’

Bono will also narrate the audio version of the book, which is being published by Alred A. Knopf on November 1.

Bono met his bandmates the Edge, Larry Mullen Jr. and Adam Clayton at school in Dublin.

He wrote U2’s first single on his 18th birthday and their debut album Boy was released two years later. 

They achieved their first UK number one album with War in 1983 and their fifth album The Joshua Tree, released in 1987, brought them to worldwide prominence. 

U2 is one of the most successful bands in history and has sold more than 157 million albums and won 22 Grammy Awards.
