I'm far from a fan but I'd been looking forward to it. Worst headliner I've ever seen.

oh no, didn't realise is was quite a bad as that! that was a wise choice to move on. For years would always watch the headliner from the left hand side by the tree in the pathway, so if it wasn't a good start, it was easy to move on towards the other stage or somewhere else. Did enjoy that walk when the area's are quiet though, its nice to walk by the bars and food places when 98% of people are at a stage, space and freedom

If those are the only Bruce songs someone knows then it isn’t Bruce’s fault!! From memory he played Badlands in the first few songs 

Of course it's not Bruce's fault that no one knows his songs completely, but I'm not sure if he even play Born in the USA... It's probably his most well known song, esp in the UK, and he didn't even bother to play it.

Exactly. They need to recognise that most people are going to be quite indifferent to their general stuff and are there for the hits. If Macca had gone early with some of the songs people were hoping for, and then interlaced with some of his lesser known songs, it would have been a totally different story.

Can't say i've enjoyed the show tonight overall and would be a tough call on if i'd have stayed, probably yes but a close call. I have nothing but admiration for him being able to put on any show at his age and i'm sure there will be rave reviews from people who experienced it from the field. Looking forward to getting some crowd size and feeling info.

He didn't play it at Glastonbury.

I’m a big Springsteen fan, but given the context of the song and the inexcusable lyrics it should be no where near any setlist he does (and thankfully isn’t, I’m sure he’s distanced himself from it in interviews)

I think it's been the worse headliner I have seen...  i think he is being given a pass out by some due to his status and age...

I think it's been fantastic and it's the saddest I've been all week that I'm not there.

He's deffo not the worst headliner, he's actually kept his crowd. Was someone a few years ago who was barely up to sound desk in the end

The problem for these types of headliners which have massively long sets and plenty of prestige, is that they have to grab you from the off. It's a festival, not their private concerts to their die-hard fans. You have to go big early doors, otherwise it's disappointing. 

I remember ditching Radiohead after 20 mins because they bored the socks off me (despite being a big Radiohead fan), and went to see Dizzee Rascal on West Holts and his set was so amazing and energetic, it was one of the best atmospheres I've been a part of during all the time I've been there.

(Not a dig) but completely disagree with you. Front loaded sets are disappointing.

You did also have an agenda before he came on mate to be fair, saying it was gonna be a snooze fest, etc

I thought it was an anti-war song? Perfect place for it is at Glasto?

I'm not going to pretend to be a huge BS fan and no all the ins and outs of his career, but in general, I think (in my opinion) his headline performance was a wet blanket.

True ...  not really an agenda though ...  that's a tad far...  Just a prediction

Well. That ended beautifully didnt it. The last hour generated a lot of tears. Can only have love for those lucky enough to enjoy it live tonight. What an absolute treat for them all

First half of the Macca set was dull but second half was banging. Loads of classics in there. Dam good fun hearing some of the best songs ever written. Would of loved to be there, even if I had to sit through some of the less exciting moments.

I don't mean load too much into the front, but it's a journey. Up and down. Start big, calm it down, go big again. Esp when Macca has missed out so many hits that ppl probably were hoping for. Doubley so when his set was over two hours.

Say what you like about that first hour - I’m sure plenty of people will - but 37 songs at 2 hours 40 minutes must be the longest Pyramid headline set ever. And he’s 80!! Incredible. Thoroughly enjoyed. If that’s his last major live show then what a wonderful way to go. I’m in bits.
