Exactly twenty-nine and a half years after U2 brought the Joshua Tree Tour to B.C. Place Stadium in Vancouver, the Northside Dublin quartet kicks-off a tour here to mark the 30th anniversary of the 1987 landmark album.
Vancouver filmmaker Patrick Stark’s dream is to be invited on-stage, to sing with the band and complete the documentary about his personal journey to overcome a fear of singing in public. One Life No Regrets includes interviews with U2 producers Steve Lillywhite and Daniel Lanois.
Stark met Bono in 2015, before U2 launched its innocence + experience tour in Vancouver. A trip to the stage was supposed to happen at the second of two shows in Rogers Arena. Blues great B.B. King’s death prompted U2 to add “When Love Comes to Town” to the set, which scuttled Stark’s cameo.
Stark spoke with theBreaker about the documentary and U2.
