Rock ‘n Roll in the Sistine Chapel!

David Evans (aka The Edge) played one Leonard Cohen song and three U2 songs on Sunday in the Sistine Chapel.

Only 11 days ago David Evans, laid his father John Gavin Evans to rest at Howth’s Presbyterian Church in the north of Dublin. His father passed away from cancer.  Taking a break from the current unorganized U2 Tour of globalist venues, David attended the conference at the Vatican on regenerative medicine called Cellular Horizons this past week.  He becomes the first rock star, as he performed four songs, to play in the Sistine Chapel. Describing the chapel The Edge said it was, “the most beautiful parish hall in the world.”  Reuters News Service has the rest of the details,

He joked with his audience, telling them he was stunned when asked to play in the chapel, which was painted by Renaissance master Michelangelo in the 16th century.

“When they asked me if I wanted to become the first contemporary artist to play in the Sistine Chapel, I didn’t know what to say because usually there’s this other guy who sings,” the musician said, referring to U2 front man Bono.

“Being Irish you learn very early that if you want to be asked to come back it’s very important to thank the local parish priest for the loan of the hall,” he said.

He then thanked Pope Francis and other Vatican officials “for allowing us to use the most beautiful parish hall in the world”.

The Edge dedicated his performance of “Walk On,” written in 2000 for Myanmar democracy advocate Aung San Suu Kyi when she was under house arrest, to Pope Francis, who he described as “the people’s pope.

“He’s doing an amazing job and long may he continue,” he added.

The rock star sprinkled his address with technical terms such as bio markers and angiogenesis.

“I can tell this is a really cool audience because normally when I say angiogenesis eyes glaze over,” he said.

After renting out the Sistine Chapel to Porsche in October 2014 we asked what was next, the Cirque du Soleil?
Looks like Call Me Jorge… was wrong!
Is there nothing sacred anymore to Francis?
Or is everything now profane?

  1. I’d advise the Vatican Weather Bureau to keep a sharp eye, just in case…

  2. I’ve been blessed to have visited the Sistine Chapel, and to have stood there awed at the history and art of that blessed and special Chapel.
    To see Bergoglio rent this place out as if it were some warehouse and to allow a rock concert in there is profane.
    As I’ve unequivocally stated for three years here on AQ and elsewhere it is my opinion, through his words and actions, that Jorge Bergoglio is an evil man and has no respect for or connection to anything Catholic or historical so I’m not surprised.
    God will not be mocked.

  3. [The first rock music in church – with Elvis in the foreground and a Tridentine Mass in the background]

    • I made it to the 0:40 mark and had to stop.

      I suspect this is on the “Required Viewing” list at ALL progressive seminaries, or at least was until the 80s.

      By which time, it wasn’t even needed anymore.

    • I wonder if it’s the Tridentine Mass, or maybe a kind of hybrid? At the 1:48 mark there are laity in the Sanctuary… perhaps they had brought up the gifts?

    • “Change of Habit” was released in 1969, by which time many US churches had already transitioned. This piece of garbage film is truly is the blueprint for Jorge’s bold new Church.

      May his reign be short.
