U2′s Edge Joins Muse At Glastonbury
[lastfm]U2[/lastfm] guitarist the [lastfm]Edge[/lastfm] took to the Glastonbury stage with [lastfm]Muse[/lastfm] over the weekend.
U2 had been forced to cancel their planned Glastonbury appearance due to lead singer [lastfm]Bono[/lastfm]‘s recent back injury. The Edge joined Muse for a rendition of the U2 hit “Where the Streets Have No Name.”
The performance, which was part of Muse’s 18-song set, marked the Edge’s first Glastonbury appearance. U2 had previously maintained that they were too popular to play Glastonbury, before finally accepting an invitation this year. Festival organizer Michael Eavis noted that U2 will once again be invited to play at a future festival.
Other performers at this year’s Glastonbury Festival included [lastfm]Shakira[/lastfm], [lastfm]Stevie Wonder[/lastfm], Scis[lastfm]sor Sisters[/lastfm] and [lastfm]Gorillaz[/lastfm]. There was also a surprise appearance by [lastfm]Radiohead[/lastfm]‘s [lastfm]Thom Yorke[/lastfm] and [lastfm]Jonny Greenwood[/lastfm].
