Agree with Oracle about Foo F, remarkable really
Artic Monkey's set was stunning, particularly, if you consider  their front man had laryngitis.At their best it's a brooding , slightly dark sound, and I agree with Oracle, is very Doors at times. I seen them evolve over the years and it's 10 years since they last performed  at Glastonbury. 
Tonight, I got back , just in time at 9.00 to catch a remarkable  set from Manics, full of favourites,  I have heard on my cd's and LiVe, many times ....thank you lads!
At present loving another band I have seen several times ' Guns and Roses'...rolling back the years , like the other oldies, which the youngsters cannot yet matchLOL !
One new band I have really enjoyed, and I am always up for new material,  is 'Gabriels', they performed  yesterday, and were on Jules Holland last week too,  a great emerging  talent.
On to tomorrow,  with more oldies Blondie Cat Stevens( Yousaf), and to conclude ,the last performance,  by Elton  John, should be SPECIAL...Looking forward to it!

Guns n roses were awful. Awful frontman. No interaction with the crowd. More like spudguns n weeds.

Maybe I'm watching  with 'Guns and Roses ' tinted glasses ...but
SA14, as usual talking total rubbish , so it's intresting  to know that he's consistent !Slash is STILL  one of the best around .

What WAS/ IS awful  is Blondie. Have seen them in their heyday,and they were brilliant,  its embarrassing  to see Debbie Harry at 77, sadly cannot sing anymore. Age has nothing to do with it, as McCartney  proved last year, and even with a great backing band,  Debbie should have hung up her microphone .

Foo fighters were amazing, Guns and Roses have still got it but axl struggled and when you take that voice out of a lot of their songs it doesn't quite sit as well as it used to. Thought lizzo was brilliant, enjoyed Cat Stevens and Elton John was superb this evening.

Was genuinely heartbroken watching Lewis Capaldi, brave brave man knowing he was not at his best and walking out in front of that crowd, you could see he was gutted not to be able to finish his set.

If you watched with tinted glasses your opinion doesn’t really count.

set to SA.."what an accoclade " ! WinkLOLLOLLOLLOLLOLLOL

If Blondie needs to hang up her microphone so does Elton. My goodness his set was dire. He needs a mobility scooter to get on stage - the whole thing was embarrassing from someone who saw him 15 years ago at Canterbury Cricket Ground.

Ah I thought Elton did well, I liked he didn't bring out megastars (with the exception of Brandon Flowers) instead opting to give relatively unknowns an opportunity to shine.

Really enjoyed Foo Fighters, Cat Stevens/Yusaf & in particularly Rick Astley.

I really enjoyed Glastonbury this year , great to see sparks , blondie and Elton ...probably the last time we will ever see them ...Not musically at their best perhaps but personally just to see them one last time was the fact that matters most ...incredible to think that the manics released their first single 35 years ago ......
Must admit I was disappointed with lizzo , normally a great performer but this year wasn't great 
Band of the festival was definitely sparks for me , incredible performance with the energy levels of a group in their 30s rather than in their 80s 

Enjoyed it from start to Finnish and great weather also adds hugely to experience

GPR proves that he is at least human...by getting it hopelessly wrong for a change LOL!

ELTON WAS EXCELLENT,  and  all those I know, young and old have said the same .
Was surprised by the mobility issues, but did'nt effect the performance .
I admit I am am an Elton fan, particularly  the 70's stuff, and I possess  vinyl(still )"& cd's of most of his output, during this period.
Have seen him live several  times, but thought the prices on the 
farwell tour(gig at swansea),were ridiculously  expensive, ahd I was'nt prepared to pay that money.
However to open with pinball wizard and bitch is back, with such a tight sound,  driven by Olson  drums  and Davey Johnson's  wonderful guitar work,  just set the tone.
It just went from there...even though his early day falsetto, has n9w mellowed ( which I prefer), ge can STILL SING...which us more than I can say  about Debbie Harry, who also looked a mess.
Shame when this happens. Mc Cartney proved proved last year that age does'nt matter, as long as you can carry it off.
Elton taken that decision  now, and should be thanked for the years of pleasure he has given us.
He's admitted  his previous failings,  with drink ,drugs, tantrums, we all make mistakes.
He ' s now committed  to he young talent, as this Glastonbury  show indicates,  and his 'aids foundation', has saved countless lives.
Thank you Elton!
