It has been a tough week for U2 with the death of their tour manager Dennis Sheehan, a man they called a "member of the family".

But also this week they had a sweet moment on stage when Bono invited the lead singer of a U2 tribute band on stage at their LA Forum concert on Tuesday night on their Innocence + Experience tour.

Joe Hier sings with Hollywood U2 and he's the band's Bono.  He arrived on stage in leather jacket, slicked back hair, and rose tinted shades.

He must have been raging when Bono bleached his hair, and Bono joked about Joe's darker hue, "Don't want to mess with the day job?".

Joe recorded Bono on a iPhone while he sang most of Sweetest Thing although he passed the microphone over to Joe at one point, much to the crowd's delight.
