Bono - Bono Thrills Blind Fan At Nashville Gig

A blind U2 fan was given a concert moment he and his wife will never forget in Nashville, Tennessee on Sunday night (03Jul11) when Bono invited him up onstage to perform with the rockers.
The rocker was finishing the set on the latest stop on U2's 360 world tour when he spotted the fan and his sign request to perform a song for his wife.
Approaching the lucky fan, Bono asked him what he wanted to play - and then invited him to join the band.
The frontman announced, "Get a guitar for this dude. Gents, we have a surprise guest."
To rapturous applause, the nervous fan began playing All I Want Is You as the band joined in.
Bono was clearly impressed and insisted the fan took home the guitar that he played as a brief member of U2.
