Post Fixing Dark Image

Last summer, I got the chance to meet someone famous from a band while they were doing a reunion tour. Sadly, while the picture was being taken...my friend forgot to put flash and the surrounding dark background made it hard to restore some details in the photo. I've tried consulting some friends of mine who are talented with photoshop but they couldn't fix it. Could anyone give me some advice or attempt to help me fix this?

Re: Fixing Dark Image

i opened up the shadows and took the right side of his face and flipped it and put ti on the left, dark side.... opening the shadows revealed a lot of noise which I softened a little, but not completely..... not perfect, but better.

Problem with the flipping is that the eyes are facing the opposite direction...my left eye is creeping me out alittle. BUT opening the shadows and reducing the noise helped the picture's quality. Thank you for trying!
