2006-04-28 - New Orleans, Louisiana - Preservation Hall


Performance notes: The Edge attends the re-opening of Preservation Hall, a New Orleans music venue that had been closed since Hurricane Katrina. The re-opening involves a presentation by Music Rising, a charity supported by Edge that seeks to help musicians affected by the hurricane. During this ceremony, the Preservation Hall Jazz Band performs a bluesy, swinging version of U2's Vertigo with The Edge participating on guitar and backing vocals. The Edge described it as "a kind of Dixieland version" of Vertigo that was "so brilliant".

A fun little Southern jazz rendition of Vertigo by the Preservation Hall Band.


Pretty good, but the singer sounds pretty muffled and the audience can be too loud sometimes.
Recording: Audience microphone - 5 stars


Audience claps and cheers and gets in the way a little.


It's just one song but it's a nice little oddity to have.
