The Edge visits the Jazz Festival @ 09:30 am

I'm currently feelin: ecstatic ecstatic
I'm currently hearin: U2 - I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For

So I went to the Jazz Festival yesterday to see my second-favourite band in the world, the Dave Matthews Band.
I was lucky enough to have arrived early, and while I had to wait through a few other bands, I was lucky enough to have a front-row view of the stage when Dave Matthews showed up.
The first odd thing I noticed was that during sound-check, the tech guys were soundchecking a Music Rising guitar. Odd, I thought, because Dave doesn't usually play electric. I didn't think much else of it.
That is, until towards the end of the set, a familiar beanie-clad guitarist walked out onstage. Yup, The Edge had landed.
It was a crazy moment. I should've expected it, with all the work Edge has been doing for New Orleans, but I was just... floored.

Sadly I didn't have my camera, but it was a stunning moment that I thought I'd share, and great to see members of my two favourite bands sharing the same stage.

As both a huge U2 and DMB fan- I am insanely jealous of you! Mind if I friend you since you have such great taste in music?
