Glasto Round Up

After digesting some of the great performances from the weekend’s festivities at Glastonbury I have to say it looked like a great festival.

Colplay’s Saturday night headlining set was dazzling. An array of multicolour lighting and lazers illuminated an electrifying performance and Chris Martin’s high octane energy was the stuff of a proper rock star.

U2 were very good also. As they should be. A crowd that size is their forte and it showed. Just very comfortable and good.

Plan B put in a great shift, playing the whole Strickland Banks record. His voice and his band sounded great and the big man took it all in his stride.

Morrissey as I’ve already discussed was good. Kool and the Gang surprised me, really fun performance and their new, young singer handled the crowd extremely well.

Finally, Beyonce, well… she was pretty good. I’m not her biggest fan anyway (Rihanna does it more for me in the solo female R&B category) and generally her songs get a little on my tits, but she did what she had to: entertained. At points I found the crowd-inclusive parts slightly nauseating, but nevertheless, she was good.

Coldplay were the big winners in my eyes, though. Well done boys.
