U2 Invite Elvis Impersonator On Stage After Technical Difficulties

(Radio.com) A technical mix up turned into an opportunity for a laugh at a U2 show Wednesday night. When a piano was rendered useless while on stage, Bono was forced into some impromptu banter with the crowd, Rolling Stone reports.

Thinking quickly, he spied an Elvis impersonator in the crowd and invited him on stage. "What's Elvis doing in the crowd?" he asked "Dude, I have everything by you. Everything." Bono pretends to be awed by the presence of a celebrity, bowing down in front of the impersonator. "This is unbelievable," he says. "Always wanted to meet you, dude. Love your early work."

The Edge tries to cut in with a new song, but Bono signals for him to hold off briefly. He asks the impersonator to sing the Elvis classic "Can't Help Falling In Love," which he does to rapturous applause.

U2′ will continue their Innocence + Experience Tour in Denver on Saturday, before finishing up their American dates on July 31 at Madison Square Garden. Check out video of the Elvis appearance here.
