WATCH: Tribute band Acrobat perform on stage during U2 concert

U2 made dreams come true during their Toronto show last night by giving popular Canadian tribute band Acrobat the chance of a lifetime - performing on stage with the band.

Frontman Bono invited two members of the band on stage for their Rattle and Hum hit 'Desire'.

Acrobat singer, Gabrielvox, confidently took the mic while their drummer took over Larry Mullen’s seat.

Something Larry looked pretty happy about.

Bono and Gabrielvox even shared the harmonica solo at the end of the song.

“Man, always wanted to meet you. Love your early work,” Bono told the singer after the performance.

The guest appearance comes after the Dubliner invited Acrobat’s bass player and super-fan, Mark Baker to the stage in Montreal last month, during a performance of 'Mysterious Ways'.

And let’s just say they enjoyed themselves.
