After December 9th, 2006, I had a lot of people tell me the same phrase, "I guess lightning DOES strike the same place TWICE".
I think they're right.
For the second time in my life, I got on stage with my favorite band, U2 and played piano along side with them.
The first time was December 14, 2005 in St. Louis on the tune "Yahweh". (you can watch that on YOUTUBE too...)
This was my 8th Vertigo concert and 10th overall.
There's no words to describe it. Just sheer amazement.
This is what happens in the video...
Bono sees my sign that says "Me + PIANO WILD HORSES" at the end of angel of harlem....
He looks at me and gives me a little "play piano?" signal with his hands and and starts to waving me to get on stage.
Instantly it hits me..."He wants me to play Angel of Harlem"..which i DON'T know how to play...(at least i've never tried)...
So I start pointing out on my sign that it says WILD HORSES...but before I know it, Bono's security guard, (John I believe) throws me up on stage....
I look at Bono and start telling him in his ear that I don't know how to play Angel of Harlem.
He looks at me,..and this is what follows...
BONO (smiling) - You play Piano?
ME - Yes!
BONO - Bahh you can play this! (angel)
ME - No I can't!!! I'm serious!!
All of a sudden Bono turns me around on stage and we start heading BACK to my spot...but then, he decides to try it anyway...
I don't have to tell you what happens next obviously...just watch it.
anyway, everything seemed to go fine...except for the bridge of the song (took a drive in the dirty rain)...
Because Bono had cut out a line from the begining, I had not realized we had gone into that yet...which caused me to sort of freeze up for a second. You can see Edge in it shouting to me "Go to 'D'!)
anyway, luckily we picked back up and ended the song pretty well if I do say so myself. :)
Best concert of my life (and not just because of this). The whole atmosphere that night in Aloha Stadium was just magical. My only small regret is that I never bumped into any of the "LOST" cast. I know for sure that Hurley (Jorge Garcia) and Locke (Terry O'Quinn) were on the floor somewhere. (Does anyone know if JJ Abrams was there?)
Well...thanks SO much for everyone who emailed me photos and the videoclips!! Especially from Nick in CA for the video at the end!
And my sweet girl Greta for actually MAKING my Sign that I took to the show :) :)
If anyone has anything else...PLEASE let me know!
Thanks...remember, Christ Jesus is LORD. (Philippians 3:7-12)
