U2 guitarist The Edge was a surprise guest during Muse‘s headline Glastonbury set on Saturday night (June 26).

The trio headlined the Pyramid Stage for the second time in six years, and were joined by The Edge in the encore.

When they returned to the stage with The Edge they started playing a version of U2‘s ‘Where The Streets Have No Name’.


“This is our friend The Edge,” Muse frontman Matt Bellamy said to the audience at the end of the mass sing-along.

U2 had been due to headline Glastonbury on the Friday (June 25), but were forced to pull out after singer Bono seriously injured to his back. They were replaced by Gorillaz.

Muse appeared relaxed onstage throughout the gig, with Bellamy, dressed in white trousers and a red T-shirt, paying tribute to the organisers.


“I can’t believe it’s not fucking raining. I’ve been waiting 15 years for it to be sunny at Glastonbury. Shout out to Michael Eavis! And his daughter [Emily]!”
