Edge was in Rome for a Vatican conference on regenerative medicine, some of whose attendees were the lucky audience for the first rock mini-concert to grace the location of Michelangelo’s immortal frescoes, which had previously only heard Gregorian chant and the Pontifical Choir.

His Sistine set included three U2 songs, “Yahweh”, “Ordinary love” and “Walk on”, and the Leonard Cohen number “If it be your will”, below.

 

As for Edge’s presence at this medical event, he has long been involved with the Angiogenesis Foundation, an organization using new scientific techniques to treat cancer, blinding diseases, wounds, and other serious conditions, since one of his family has battled leukemia in the past.Screen Shot 2016-05-02 at 3.51.57 PM copy
