DENVER -- A Colorado man is proudly celebrating his fifteen minutes of fame after being asked to play with the band "U2" on stage during a concert in Phoenix.

On Friday, Marc Trevino was pulled out of the audience and selected to play guitar with the band in front of an estimated 18,000 fans.

"I really felt like I lived it for all those fans and then maybe someday they can be up there to," said Trevenio during an interview at his Littleton home. The 41-year-old had traveled to Phoenix with the family for the weekend concerts and had hoped to be chosen for an on-stage performance.

Using his cell phone, Trevenio dispalyed a large message to the band hoping to get their attention.

"He saw that I could play just by my message and he asked me, I rattled off the chords and told him the right chords," added Trevino.

The lifelong U2 fan said he's surprised by how much attention he's received since the Arizona concert. Trevino is looking forward to seeing the band again later this month as U2 performs in Denver on June 6 and 7.
