Noel was outstanding as close to an oasis gig glasto is going to get sadly.

But I was shocked he never teamed up with his idol given they were pretty much on the same stage at the sand time.

An 80 year old bloke singing 38 songs in a 2.5 hour set. Of course hes not going to belt them out like he did 50 years ago but he gave it a bloody good go. He has every right to pick and choose what he sings. It was a mix that spanned his entire career and there'll always be some that dont hit the spot for some people.

21 Beatles songs, 6 Wings ones, 1 Springsteen song amongst them, so not a bad percentage.

The look on peoples faces there said it all. Magical. Well never see the like of him again

My word there’s a lot of twaddle on this thread! ‘Strange’, ‘random’ set list? Self indulgent? Play some of his back catalogue?? 😂

He literally just played a set spanning 60 years of a back catalogue! 4 ‘newish’ songs out of nearly 40 in a 2.5hr set list! Over half were Beatles tracks!!!

It’s more or less the same set list that he’s played to sell out stadiums worldwide during his last couple of tours - so pretty tried and tested.

And the self indulgent guitar jam on The end???? I take it whoever wrote that is not familiar with the track on Abbey Road.
Absolutely right BCL. 12 years as a Beatle. 52 years in Wings and flying solo. Can think of a load of post 1970 songs I would have liked him to do but he crammed a lot into 2 and half hours. An 80 year old singing for 2 and half hours FFS! And the abbey road jam? Perfect ending!

Snarky Puppy playing the West Holts Stage now.
Gareth Southgate behind a big percussion rig doing the thing!
He’s tried to disguise himself with some quit hip shades…but it’s him…Oh yes😉

Really enjoying Amyl and The Sniffers right now, as I've enjoyed them every time I've seen them. I also enjoyed Diana Ross more than I thought I would, and I've never seen her live.

Just a shame Macca didn’t involve Merseyside’s all-time greatest lyricist last night. But maybe Somerset is a bit too far from the Wirral for Nigel Blackwell to travel. Would have a loved a Trumpton Riots duet TBF.
