1. I kissed you in the water

    And made your dry lips sing

    I saw you look like a Japanese baby

    In an instant I remembered everything

    Thats a great song and I think I enjoy hearing it live more than the studio version "This ones for the ladies" :lol:
    I did watch the whole of The Killers (secret) set at the time and they were just incredible. I also enjoyed seeing the crowds reaction to them.



    Its back to the year 2000 for me and a performance that still gives me the shivers. Its one of my favourite songs by the great man himself...

    I was aiming not to be predictable by choosing all my favourite artists, but I'm failing already :D
    I've enjoyed so many Glastonbury performances by artists who I don't often listen to so I''ll have to post those later. I couldn't resist posting this next performance from 2016.


    Getting Away With It (All Messed Up) - James



    One of my favourite songs and the performance has it all for me. Tim Booth as always delivers with his warmth and effortless vocals, he even crowd surfs and does his unique signature dance. Not forgetting the excellent music being played by the band.

    I saw James back in 1992, in Bradford, yet I can not find the setlist or any information at all, it's like it never happened. I remember it was for the album SEVEN, and while "Sound" went down well, it was the tracks from GOLDMOTHER which rocked the place down. They even had us sitting on the floor for "Sit Down"

    I saw them again in 2013 where they were supporting The Killers and they had their setlist cut short because Booth kinda went crazy with the song "Out to Get You" I never found out what song they missed and was thinking it would have been "Come Home"

    All in all, they really put on a great show.

    How odd. I've just had a quick search and can't find anything either. They did do a lot of shows during 1992 and Bradford doesn't seem to be listed anywhere.

    I can imagine Tim Booth doing his own thing and not following the rules :D its a shame if you missed out on 'Come Home' though.

    I've seen them twice and the last time was in 2008, I loved every single minute, it was more like a huge party than a gig.

    It's very frustrating, I remember the venue too, St George's Hall and I went on their website, it had them down for 2008. I feel like I've been cheated. I even checked years around and still couldn't find anything.


    Yes, he really does enjoy himself, doesn't he?

    While I was looking around I checked out a few of their setlist and was surprised that "Sit Down" didn't feature much.

    I think Jarvis Cocker has a very alluring distinctive style, both with his songwriting and especially when performing.

    Watching the reaction of the crowd on this video, non of them were in danger of not knowing the words to this huge 90's song.

    I wish that I'd opened the thread with this performance. Coldplay performed a tribute for 'Viola Beach' (the young band who died in a car crash on their first overseas tour). I've watched this tribute many times and it still gets to me, however, its a superb mix of both bands playing together resulting in a great sound.




    Viola Beach were an indie rock group who had a big break when they played the BBC Introducing stage at Reading And Leeds festivals 2015 and went on to play at London’s KOKO in January 2016.

    Its likely Viola Beach would eventually have played at Glastonbury themselves. For Coldplay to have performed this tribute in 2016 gave Viola Beach the big gig they deserved.

    I like Kasabian and this song, but what makes this performance even more impressive is that Kasabian were the final act of the weekend when you could excuse the crowd for being somewhat jaded, no chance of that as Kasabian managed to get everyone pumped to the max. Fantastic!

    What Have I Done to Deserve This? – Pet Shop Boys (2010)



    I appreciate how the PSB’s still included Dusty Springfield in this performance (via a recording) even though she had passed away 11 years previously. Dusty Springfield has vocals which I could listen to all day long and if she was still here it would have been good to hear more contemporary songs by her.

    The Last Shadow Puppets first appeared at Glastonbury in 2008 when they performed a 'secret' gig on the Park Stage. They returned in 2016 to perform on the main Pyramid stage.

    It’s so sad that Amy Winehouse is no longer with us.

    Amy Winehouse (2007)



    Hearing this version of 'Valerie' is bittersweet and we'll never know what possible future music she would have created with her powerful voice.

    I swear I thought this was a typo, I can not believe it's over seven years ago.

    Between Amy, Bowie & George, I struggle to think which death had a bigger impact on me.

    At the age of 68 the amazing Dolly Parton appeared at Glastonbury (2014) where she played guitar and banjo, sang a newly composed Glastonbury song called ‘Mud’, and even honked out the Benny Hill theme on her saxophone :D


    Jolene



    Its great fun to see the stewards joining in with this performance by creating their own dance.


    I Will Always Love You



    I know that the Whitney Houston version is hugely successful, but I prefer Dolly's sweet, sincere vocals for this song.

    Glastonbury 2019: The Killers and The Cure announced as final headline acts for the iconic music festival

    Rock bands The Killers and The Cure will headline Glastonbury Festival.

    Brandon Flowers and co, and the Friday I'm In Love hitmakers, will join grime star Stormzy as the final bill toppers for the world renowned music extravaganza.

    The Killers, who last topped the bill at Glastonbury in 2007, tweeted: 'Well folks, there ya have it. It's true. Be with us.'

    While 80s' icons The Cure are returning for their first headline performance in 24 years, which means the band tie with Coldplay as the only acts to have headlined the event four times.
    The band previously performed at the event as headliners in 1986, 1990 and 1995.

    Stormzy makes his headliner debut on Friday, whilst Kylie Minogue will performing the famous Sunday afternoon Legend slot, after she was forced to pull out of her performance at the festival in 2005, due to battling breast cancer.

    Janet Jackson was also announced for the festival, making her debut at the event, while Liam Gallagher, Miley Cyrus, Johnny Marr, Billie Eilish, and George Ezra have also been added to the bill.

    Liam's brother and former Oasis bandmate Noel Gallagher was rumoured to be joining the bill, and Liam claimed he was 'begging' for the gig, but the singer has not been announced for the festival as of yet.

    The Chemical Brothers, Bastille, Years & Years, Loyle Carner, Mavis Staples, Jorja Smith, Wu Tang Clan, Vampire Weekend, and Two Door Cinema Club have also been confirmed.

    Glastonbury's line-up is made up of 42 per cent female artists, and the event have aimed to make sure there is as close to a 50/50 gender-balanced bill as possible.

    Festival organiser Emily Eavis, who curates the line-up with her father Michael Eavis, said previously: 'The gender balance is something I consider at every stage of the booking process.

    'We're a little way off being 50/50 across the whole festival, but in 2017 the Park Stage was 50/50 and that will be the case on other stages this year. We're definitely moving in the right direction.'

    The festival is set to take place at Worthy Farm in Somerset, South West England, which takes place between June 26 and June 30, and more acts will be announced nearer to the time of the festival.

    I hope, I really do, that they do more than one gig this year.

    Still, at least we will get to see this on the TV.

    Glastonbury 2019

    Did anyone watch this years Glastonbury?

    I've not had a chance to catch up with all I wanted to see yet. I did watch The Killers on Saturday night (which I've mentioned in The Killers thread) and also The Cure last night (Sunday)

    Robert Smiths voice is so pure and faultless, he still sounds as fresh as when the band first started - the whole sound of their set was so clear and impressive. When Robert Smith said to the crowd - “I realise that I’m going to win the award for like, the person who says the least ever at Glastonbury" - I liked it, because he stays true to himself wherever he is performing.

    Its impossible to chose a favourite track from the night because I don't have one, every single song they performed was incredible, although I almost exploded when they performed PUSH.


    Here is a snippet of last nights performance ....



    I'm still waiting for someone to upload the rest of the set onto youtube.
