In the video above, Moore speaks about his most memorable moment with a fan -- one thta's sure to bring tears to your eyes.

"The most memorable interaction I've had with a fan was with a soldier," Moore says. "He was hiding out, they were being attacked by people over in the Middle East. They were hiding out in a bunker, and they had been there for over 24 hours, and the "Up All Night" record was on his iPod and he listened to the record over and over and that's what kept his sanity."
