Oscar winners Steven Speilberg and his wife Kate Capshaw and family were joined by Daniel Day Lewis, his wife Rebecca Miller and their son Ronan for the three and a half hour gig.
The VIPs emerged from the Four Seasons hotel nearby and joined the 37,000 strong crowd walking into the RDS before taking their seats with members of the public in the stands.
Earlier in the day the ‘Schindler's List’ director joined pal and Wicklow resident Daniel Day Lewis in the Roundwood Inn for a spot of lunch. Day Lewis lives nearby on Annamoe with his family.
Emerging from one of four cars with blacked-out windows outside The Roundwood Inn, the 'Jaws' director (65) was accompanied by about 15 friends who are believed to have travelled with him to Ireland.
Spielberg and Day Lewis have recently worked together on Lincoln – a bio pic about the legendary US president which is tipped for Oscar glory on its release at the end of the year.
