Muse‘s Matt Bellamy has revealed that Bono got in touch with them to say he liked their Glastonbury performance with U2 guitarist The Edge in June.

After U2 pulled out of the festival due to Bono‘s back injury, Muse played the Irish group’s song ‘Where The Streets Have No Name’ with The Edge during their headline slot.

Bellamy told BBC 6 Music: “We heard from him [Bono] via The Edge, we heard that he liked the performance we did at Glastonbury and he thought it was a fitting tribute to the band.”

Muse are set to play Wembley Stadium tonight (September 10) and tomorrow, with the likes of Lily Allen, Biffy Clyro, I Am Arrows and The Big Pink set to support them over the two nights.
