U2, A Blind Fan and The Chills

Kyle Reed // @kylereed

U2 played Nashville on Saturday night. And I think I was one of 7 people who did not go. I had to wait my time as I am going on the 17th in St. Louis. It was the hardest thing to hold off and not go Saturday night but I made it without any major break downs and just spent the night working away.

But there was a moment that happened at the end of their set that will never happen again. As the band finished their last song “moment of surrender” they were walking off stage when Bono spotted a guy a blind fan upfront holding up a sign saying he wanted to play a song for his wife. Bono brought him up and this is what happened.

It gave me the chills.

    I am very happy that I was there to witness it live. You should never leave a U2 show early. :)
