Glastonbury Gets The Edge

U2 had to cancel plans to headline the Glastonbury Festival while Bono recovered from surgery to repair damage the singer sustained during a conditioning session leading up to the next leg of the Irish band's 360o Tour.  That did not keep The Edge from making an appearance.  Saturday night (6/26), the U2 guitarist bound on stage as Muse launched into a version of Where The Streets Have No Name, bringing a roar of recognition from the 100,000 strong crowd. See it here.
Knowing no intro was really necessary, Matt Bellamy of Muse did not bother with one as the song opened, saying simply, 'This is our friend The Edge' as the song from The Joshua Tree drew to a close.  There to take it all in was actress Kate Hudson, former wife of Rich Robinson of the Black Crowes, who is reportedly tight with Bellamy.
