I love U2!

I don't know what I love more about this....the fact that Bono gave this guy an experience of a lifetime or Adam's friends trying to film it and they were SOOOOO happy for him and shaking while trying to film or that he gave a shout out to his all made me tear up and just gave me a happy for the day! The article is below followed by the video.

U2 invited a blind fan on stage to perform 'All I Want is You' during a concert in Nashville over the weekend.

The Irish rockers were about to begin their encore at Vanderbilt Stadium on Saturday, when Bono noticed fan Adam Bevell holding up a sign, which read 'BLIND GUITAR PLAYER. Bring me up'.

Bevell was helped on the stage and handed a guitar as Bono promised concertgoers that U2 would be joined by a "surprise guest".

Bevell told Bono that he'd like to perform a song in dedication to his wife Andrea.

When quizzed by the frontman on how it felt to be performing with U2, the gentleman admitted: "I'm really nervous!"

U2 and Bevell then performed 'All I Want is You', which was originally released on 1988's Rattle and Hum LP.

The blind guitarist received a standing ovation from those in attendance and hugs from the members of U2 after the song concluded.

Bevell later said that he was shocked to have been invited to play with Bono, telling Fox News: "You could just feel his kindness. It was an out-of-body experience. It was the greatest feeling."
