The Sunday evening performance unfolded before a sold-out crowd of more than 40,000 people. 

People cheered as the young man and his friend, introduced by the band's front man Alex Ebert as "Frank and Vince" were helped onto the stage by concert security. 

The pair snapped a selfie with Ebert as the band performed their song, If I were free.
