Barcelona, ES / Palau Sant Jordi

'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,

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)

'Yessssss!!! @harrykantas On The Stage!! #spanishmafia #U2 #U2ieTour #U2barcelona2 @U2_ultraviolet viva #barcelona!!!'  (@U2Valencia)

'Boy learns guitar. Girl learns 2 dance. Meet. Kiss. Marry. This week they joined the band. #ChooseJoy @harrykantas @U2_ultraviolet #U2ieTour' (@_Bigwave_)

It was a great night for Harry - how was it for you? Were you at the second show in Barcelona?  Add your own comments and photos below.

Tremendous night!
Thanks again! has been like watching a good friend after a season. There have been plenty of past revive feelings in the present. Thanks Larry, Edge, Adam and Bono for a new experience etched in my heart. Hasta la vista amigos! Love from Barcelona
I had booked my tics for the show at Palau San Jordi in december 2014, but in August, in broke my leg in a motorcycle accident from which I'm recovering and therefore coulnd't attempt yesterday's show! It's a great pity to me - especially as I read that "Zooropa", one of my favs, had been played... Lesson learnt: I quit motorcycling, buy a stable car and join the next possible show of U2!

Aquest es un missatge que he penjat en el meu faceebook, tampoc vull faltar el respecte a ningú però m'agradaria expresarme amb el meu idioma. Es fa molt difícil descriure el viscut, vist i sentit ahir al Palau Sant Jordi... El que no tinc dubte és que els U2 és un dels millors grups del món en tocar en directe... Són molt grans. Gràcies nois per un altre cop donar-me una nit inoblidable de música... Sí, sí música. Estic molt orgullós de ser un fan vostre. Moment, gallina de piel, tothom, tothom, cantant One a capella acompanyats per al The Edge amb la guitarra.
