The Edge Jams with Muse

So when word trickled out yesterday that U2’s The Edge had been spotted walking around the festival’s press tent, it was really only a matter of time before he made his own guest appearance

Muse were joined onstage by The Edge as they headlined Glastonbury tonight (June 26).

The space-rock trio played the closing Pyramid Stage for the second time in six years, bringing the second day to an epic finish.

The band brought their special brand of bombast despite a relatively-stripped down show from what they are used to, though the biggest surprise was reserved for the encore.

The band left the stage for a lengthy breather after finishing the initial set with ‘Stockholm Syndrome’. When they returned, they were joined by The Edge, who added his trademark guitar to a version of U2’s ‘Where The Streets Have No Name’.

“This is our friend The Edge,” Muse frontman Matt Bellamy said simply at the end of the mass sing-a-long.

U2 had been due to headline Glastonbury last night, but were forced to pull out after Bono seriously injured his back and were replaced by Gorillaz.
