'Tonight this city belongs to me...' 'Want to come up dude?’ Night two in Spain and Angel of Harlem in the house.
'New York like a Christmas tree Tonight, this city belongs to me, Angel...'
Barcelona actually, but who's checking? What a night... and by the way, who said it was Tuesday? 'This feels like the best Saturday night ever,' as Bono put it after Harry stepped off the stage, following a very accomplished guest guitar slot for Angel of Harlem. 'Very cool Harry, very relaxed...'
Bit of a backstory to this. Harry (@harrykantas), originally from Greece, now living in Dublin and part of the @u2wanderer team, was fulfilling a longtime ambition to play on stage with the band last night.
'I picked up a guitar at age 16, with the intention of one day playing with @U2.' he tweeted.'I didn't know how I'd make that happen.'
It was obviously meant to be. Outside the venue, before the showt, he tweeted a photo wearing Bono shades. 'Does putting B's shades on give me his powers? I'll do the show tonight, send in ur #U2Request'
Last week his wife Amra found herself on stage to dance in Mysterious Ways, so no pressure for Harry when after a snatch of 'Love Me Do', following Desire, Bono saw the sign.
'There's a guitar player over there.. you wanna come up dude? What's your name? Harry the guitar player. Do you know the chords of Angel Of Harlem?'
As it happened, he did and he pulled off his performance with aplomb. Edge gave him the guitar for keeps and everybody was pleased for him.
'Great job Harry! A fantastic experience! I wanna see that guitar when I come to Dublin City! cheers friend.' (@KevinS2U)
