U2 brings blind fan onstage to perform @ 11:21 am

scruby:
Most every show on U2's 360 world tour has ended with "Moment of Surrender," but before walking off stage last night in Nashville, Bono saw a blind fan up front holding a sign saying he wanted to play a song for his wife.

"What do you want to play?" Bono said to him. "Get a guitar for this dude. Gents, we have a surprise guest." The man said he was really nervous but once handed Bono's acoustic guitar he began playing "All I Want Is You."

It started with just Bono on vocals, but soon enough the entire band joined in for a moment the man is unlikely to ever forget. When it was all done, Bono gave him the guitar.

This is so amazing.

Thank you SO MUCH for posting that! I'd heard that he gave his guitar to someone, but I didn't hear the story. And that was SO LOVELY. <3 <3 <3

Total goosebumps. What a moment - not just for the guy, but for that crowd. Extra song, and it's "All I Want is You"? That's awesome. I'll be at the Toronto show in a week, and I would FREAK if something like that happened there.
