Thrilling watching 80,000 people eating out of Guy's hands.

What we need now is a series of big, open air summer elbow events for 2012. Somewhere like Old Trafford cricket ground for me; them and Kloot and one or two others. They're at the point where they can do that now: A two hour set, plenty of room for some older material. Bring it home! Get 'em pencilled in for next July!

Now THAT'S a good idea....

By the way, I was a little disappointed with the coverage tonight, could have had a few more songs on, considering they were billed on BBC3 for the whole hour.

Thanks MBV and heshofcheese.

Plenty of places in Old Trafford for the older listener to rest his weary legs; coupled with modern toilet facilities, holy turf trodden on by the likes of Clive Lloyd and Andrew Flintoff (albeit hidden underneath rubber matting, no doubt): Plenty of hotels in the vicinity. One day like that would see us right.

Had a little tear during quite a few of the songs. They do that to you.

You can see The Birds on BBC/Glastonbury coverage. Guy really belted it out with monumental force.

In the annals of weirdness, the local newspaper (the Carroll County Times) has a picture of the crowd for Elbow's performance on page A2.

It's weird because 1) I doubt that many readers of the CCT would know who Elbow was and 2) I doubt that many readers of the CCT would even know what Glastonbury was. Sure, VH1 broadcast Coldplay's performance late last night, but that's a rarity -- and probably the most attention Glastonbury has ever received on this side of the Pond.

watched the Glasto bits today. Did enjoy it - but probably would have enjoyed it more if i'd watched it in the evening with a few beers. Drunk

Thanks for that Ticky, they were just brilliant - Guy just has that natural charisma to work the crowd which is somewhat lacking from some of the bands performed this weekend.

Hopefully all the folks I told to tune in agreed and may one day appreciate where I'm coming from, loving the best band in the world!! Very Happy

the video I downloaded and am currently watching runs for over 69 mins and includes all the above setlist + grounds for divorce:

the birds
bones of you
mirrorball
neat little rows
grounds for divorce
tower crane driver
lippy kids
weather to fly
open arms
one day like this

for the torrent-literate amongst you, head to isohunt and search for glastonbury. it's part of the 'glastonbury 2011 pack'. at a pinch I could probably upload this somewhere over the next day or two. (1.4GB .mp4)

peace,
stephen


edit to add: there are a half dozen oompa loompas in the audience. that is somewhat... disconcerting Surprised)
