Many who have been up have been contacted already, but if you are one of those who we have not been able to get int touch with, please read this and send in your details asap

Huh?

 

Certain fans who already received special attention during the tour get special attention again? How about giving the fans who have never been on stage a chance to fulfill a dream?

Even though I have friends who fit the criteria and were invited to Paris for this contest, I cheer for the fans who haven't yet had their minute on stage.

Thank you U2 and U2 Community/ Zoo Mods. I was on stage in Chicago 6/28/15 and sang Desire with the band while my new friend that day Shawn Golley who is nearly blind played acoustic guitar. It was one of the most energetic moments of my life, only behind watching my wife give birth to our daughter Evelyn this year months before the Chicago show & skydiving with my brother (2 separate events!). I hope I get the opportunity to represent the U2 fan community- I could feel the embrace of the crowd and the band and it was such a great feeling that I totally understand where the guys hit a comfort zone up there on stage. All I kept thinking was 'don't screw up and make the hardcore fans proud'.

 

We didn't get to perform the whole song so we have unfinished business! That's why we need to get to Paris :)

 

Here's a video of our performance, we come in around 2:30 mark around there. Please give Shawn and I your vote. Thank you! -Kevin Crabtree

Another 2 fingered salute to the fans, over 30 years following, going to gigs, buying merchandise, buying records, cds, dvds, books, fan club subscriptions etc etc just like millions of others and never once got so much as an autograph, cheers lads.

Or, depending on your gaze, a fantastic opportunity for someone other fans want to see back up on the e-stage, and on the telly.

Oh the suspense of all of this is KILLING ME!!!!!  We were never asked to submit a story or a "case" but I will say, that if chosen for this ultimate U2 honor, I will BRING it.   It would be really nice if a couple of fans were chosen, for different fan moments. We shall see, I guess! :)
