Taylor Swift receives flowers from U2 as she starts Dublin leg of tour

Taylor Swift has received flowers from U2 as she starts her Dublin shows.

The singer posted a photograph of a huge bouquet of flowers, sent from the Irish rock band.

She captioned the photo by saying, "already feeling the Irish hospitality. @u2, thanks for always being the classiest & coolest."

The note that Bono and his bandmates sent, read "Dear Taylor, Welcome back to our hometown... leave some of it standing?!!!! Your Irish fan club, Bono, Edge, Adam and Larry."

Taylor is currently on the European leg of her record-breaking Eras Tour. It's not known whether her boyfriend Travis Kelce will join her in Dublin, but last Saturday he joined her on-stage at Wembley Stadium, dressed in a top hat and tails.

The Eras Tour consists of 152 dates and made over $1 billion, (£796, 576 million) before it even reached the halfway mark, making it the highest grossing tour of all time.

It's believed the Shake It Off singer has been writing new material on the road. "Taylor is working on a new record which is due out in 2025 followed by a new tour in 2026," a source told DailyMail.com. "She is heavily inspired by all the new experiences she is having on the Eras tour and has been quietly writing songs backstage."
