Brandon Flowers and co surprised Glasto crowds by performing a secret set on the John Peel stage.
The US band first played the John Peel stage in 2004 and headlined the Pyramid Stage in 2007. Walking onto the stage to the famed favourite of late DJ Peel, The Undertones ‘Teenage Kicks,’ lead singer Brandon joked with the crowd saying “They say you play the John Peel Stage twice in your career, once on the way up and once on the way down. It’s good to be back.”
The band surprised fans with a small setlist containing some of their greatest hits, such as ‘Human’, ‘Somebody Told Me’ and their huge hit that shot them to fame in 2004, ‘Mr. Brightside’. They quickly filled out the tent with Glastonbury Festival having to issue a warning that it was at capacity and nobody else would get in.
The John Peel tent is now full to capacity. Please do not head in that direction as you will not get into the venue. Thank you.
