Matthew McConaughey is Joined by Wife Camila Alves at 'Sing 2' Premiere

Matthew McConaughey has the support of his wife Camila Alves at the premiere of his new movie!

Matthew, 52, and Camila, 39, posed together on the red carpet at the premiere of Sing 2 on Sunday (December 12) in Los Angeles.

For the event, Matthew sported a brown suit while Camila looked pretty in a cream-colored, silk dress.

Matthew‘s fellow co-stars Nick Kroll, Eric Andre, Chelsea Peretti and husband Jordan Peele, and Bono with his U2 bandmate The Edge were also in attendance.

In the upcoming sequel, the ever-optimistic Buster Moon (McConaughey) and his all-star cast of performers prepare to launch their most dazzling stage extravaganza yet …all in the glittering entertainment capital of the world. There’s just one hitch: They first have to persuade the world’s most reclusive rock star—played by global music icon Bono, in his animated film debut—to join them.

Sing 2 will be out in theaters on December 22. Check out the trailer here!

FYI: Matthew is wearing a Dolce & Gabbana suit. Camila is wearing a Maria Lucia Hohan gown, Kallati earring, and rings by Djula and LeVian.

Fans of U2 in Australia and Asia are in luck as the band will be bringing their smash hit Joshua Tree Tour there!

The band is heading to Singapore and South Korea for the first time ever and this will mark their first time in Australia since 2010.

The original run of the tour celebrated the album’s 30th anniversary back in 2017.

“It’s only taken me 30 years to learn how to sing these songs and it’s great to be able to say that I’ve finally caught up with the band,” Bono said in a statement (via Rolling Stone). “Our audience has given the Joshua Tree a whole new life on this tour. Doing these shows has been very special for us, a lot of emotion… From the despair of how relevant some of the dark songs still are, to the joy, pure fun of the staging… it’s quite a ride. And now we get to do it all over again. Auckland, Brisbane, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, Sydney, Tokyo, Singapore, Seoul… We’re coming for you.”
