Blind Guitarist Lives Out Dream at U2 Show

What can I say? I’m a suck­er for these feel-good moments. This past week­end, Adam Bev­ell, who lost his sight more than two decades ago, attend­ed his 20th U2 con­cert in Nashville. Through­out the show, he held up a sign that read “Blind Gui­tar Play­er: Bring Me Up!” And even­tu­al­ly Bono took him up on the offer, invit­ing him on stage to strum along to “All I Want is You” and then let­ting him leave with a lit­tle par­ty favor — Bono’s green gui­tar. A class act.

You can catch Adam talk­ing about his expe­ri­ence and play­ing some more gui­tar here. And if you like moments like these, then don’t miss this feelin’-groovy moment from Paul Simon’s recent show in Toron­to.
