Crawley Town manager John Yems and players Ludwig Francillette and Blondy Nna Noukeu were in the crowd along with Saffron from the band Republica.

Geldof wore a Crawley Town shirt for part of the gig and called John Yems Pep Guardiola as he addressed the crowd.

The Reds shirt had the number 70 on the back - Bob's age. And to have the energy he has is incredible. He is a brilliant frontman and the band definitely still has it.
