Slinking onstage about 20 seconds into the intro of Gabriel's iconic ballad, Cusack handed Gabriel a boombox and bowed graciously, before returning to the stage wings. Gabriel held the boombox above his head in a Dobler-esque salute, before continuing the song; Cusack then spent the rest of the night live-tweeting the show from backstage. (Sample tweet: "give a re-listen to his body of work- seeing gabriel live again made me rember how inspiring &transcendent -filled with passion and thought.")Cameron Crowe, who directed Say Anything 23 years ago. Cameron took to his own Twitter page, happily posting: "Peter Gabriel and John Cusack on stage together at the Hollywood Bowl tonight. Won't forget that... ever." Cusack replied via his own Twitter: "If I were u I would follow @CameronCrowe and occasionally suggest we work together again - was so happy to see him last night at gabriel."
