[Minor spoiler] The guy in the turban at Vancouver #2

Check out this fella who was called up onstage to dance with Bono during Mysterious Ways at Vancouver #2 - he did a great job, although possibly scared the shit out of Bono when he picked him up and carried him, lolz:
http://youtu.be/5B8aEfLsPJg


I wasn't at this gig but enjoyed the video.

Anyway my question is whether anyone recognises the guy?

He looks very like the guy who was called up onstage at 360 Washington in Sep 2009 (a gig that I was at). Video below.

I wonder if he is the same guy? The beard was a bit longer in 2009... Same build though, same red turban, same enthusiasm! Maybe he is a front-of-GA regular.

2009 clip:
http://youtu.be/Q98FpY_xGOk


Anyway I'm just curious - thought maybe he might be on this forum.

hahaha that was great he just fucking goes for it! might as well when you're invited on stage at a rock concert what's the point in standing there? his pointing when miming "she moves" in the chorus made me laugh a lot. What a show stealer. thank god lifting Bono went to plan though, fucking hell that could have gone wrong and it would have been awful

He's one of the people following the band around, throughout the continent. Always in front.

A lot of us went to a bar after the 2nd show and we asked him about him carrying Bono.
Bono told him "catch me". Amp couldn't understand him, but Bono jumped anyway. That's why he was struggling with him.

That was awesome. I love the "Catch me" part of the story. I ran into Amp after the show and he said he was scared he was going to drop him.

You and everybody else, buddy.

I also loved his dancing with Bono, singing along. Man, that whole show was so good.

I honestly don't get how the same people always get on stage lol. I guess Bono remembers them.

he honestly doesn't set out to get on stage every time, like some do... he didn't even que the first day. he's just highly recognizable and is a big fan. an an asshole. i kid i kid. he's a great guy.
