Coldplay, R.E.M., U2, Willie Nelson and Ben Harper are among the artists represented via live recordings on "Carved in Stone Vol. 2," recorded at the famed Red Rocks Amphitheatre outside Denver. The 10-track album will be available in the Denver area beginning June 4 and nationally on June 15. It follows the 2003 release of the first "Carved in Stone," which featured Phish, Widespread Panic and Indigo Girls.
The lone previously released cut on "Vol. 2" is U2's "Sunday Bloody Sunday," which first appeared on the Irish rock quartet's 1983 live album "Under a Blood Red Sky." Stevie Ray Vaughan's "Pride and Joy" was captured at the late guitarist's final Red Rocks appearance in 1988, while Coldplay's "Politik" was taped in June 2003 during the group's maiden performance at the venue.
Net profits from the sale of the album will be donated to the Preserve the Rocks fund, dedicated to the ongoing rehabilitation of the Red Rocks site.
Here is the track list for "Carved in Stone Vol. 2":
- "Sunday Bloody Sunday," U2
- "Pride and Joy," Stevie Ray Vaughan

- "Break You Off," the Roots
- "Screaming John," Sonia Dada
- "Soulshine," Gov't Mule
