Patrick Stark has battled a lifelong fear of public performance, something many people suffer from. But unlike others who would prefer to do nothing about it and live life contently and not conquer their fears, Stark is doing something about it. In a big way.
The Vancouver filmmaker and U2 superfan has had a lifelong dream to perform with the band. And this isn’t just a whim. For the past six years Stark has documented his journey for One Life, No Regrets. And while the band Trooper let him sing with them, the true test comes this week. Because U2 kick off their world tour in Vancouver on Thursday and Stark is determined to get on stage with them. He’s even gone so far as to track the band down at a local restaurant where he told them the situation and Stark claims Bono told him he’d make it happen.
The band is scheduled to play two shows at Rogers Arena, this Thursday and Friday. Let’s see if Stark can live out his dream.
