Comments: In lieu of U2 actually performing at Glastonbury (their headlining appearance the night before was cancelled due to Bono having back surgery), The Edge makes a guest appearance with Saturday night's headliners Muse. They cover U2's live classic Streets to open the encore. Edge plays true to his usual style; the members of Muse adeptly take on the other roles and produce a faithful cover. This is the second time a member of U2 has performed on stage at Glastonbury; Adam was first, appearing with the Hothouse Flowers in 1989. Setlist and comment provided by U2gigs.com.

"Dirty Day is a father and son song. 'It's a dirty day', was an expression my dad would use and there is a lot of him in there but it was also influenced by Charles Bukowski, the great American writer and drinker. The song is about a character who has walked out on his family and, years later, meets the son he's abandoned. It's not about my father but I used some of my dad's attitude in it."

When U2 were recording 'Electrical Storm', it was Bono's intention to write about the aftermath of 9/11, but it turned out to be a love song.
