I am most looking forward to Elton John on Sunday. He totally blew me away when I saw him recently at the O2 London and is now promising a "brand new" show at Glastonbury, along with a number of special guests, who will probably all be relative youngsters - or so I imagine. Sad to say that it will be his last ever show in the UK.

So are they showing the whole of the hewdline shows?

I'm glad to see he is mixing up his set for this show, but disappointed he didn't mix it up for the last leg of his NA tour... played almost an identical show to the previous NA tour.. Guess I should consider myself lucky to have seen him a few times in recent years.

There was doubt about whether the Arctic Monkeys would appear as Alex Turner had laryngitis last week. The Foo Fighters were probably on standby to take their headline spot if necessary, but as it happened he recovered in time, so the Foo Fighters turned up in an unscheduled afternoon slot, thinly disguised as "The Churnups", got a rapturous reception, and were amazing. The Arctic Monkeys, by most accounts, were rather underwhelming.

Artic monkeys are almost always underwelming. Such a great band, such great songs, just not getting it together live.

Possibly, although it sounds like the Foos were always meant to be there. Apparently they were playing the same stage, night and spot (Pyramid, Fri, 2nd from headliner) as their Glastonbury debut 25 years earlier. So while its possible they could have also been wrangled as a headliner, that feels too deliberate (along with many rumors through the week that it would be them) for what happened to not always be the plan.

Good to see the Foo Fighters back again, but like the Stones without Charlie, they're missing a key element both visually and sonically without Taylor Hawkins (RIP).

Yes they would been there anyway but could be upgraded.

I saw the arctics on their first tour and still in my top 10 gigs ever - last night I thought was accomplished but dull. Zero banter = not great for a festival show

Im only watching on tv btw

Looking forward to guns n roses and Lizzo today, tomorrow keen to catch war on drugs, qotsa and Elton

I have to correct myself. That first 2 years they were amazing live. Those 2 albums are classics too.

Guns and roses where horrible last week. Hope they recover a bit. Looking forward to Lana del Rey who is a bit shakey bur still special and Elton, who will for sure perform a classic gig.

I love Glasto, always lots of great music across multiple genres, wish they would show the headliners full sets. Maybe they do on the iplayer but more often than not you get a 30-40 mins maybe of headliner, then cut to another stage. Back to few more songs from headliner. We'll see, looking forward to GN'R and hoping for full set on BBC2 from 10pm.

The Manics also, they played Isle of Wight last weekend; only 4 songs or so on TV, hoping full set will pop up on YouTube.

Give it a day or two and popular bands will have whole set on BBC iPlayer. OK if in UK but not so easy to watch anywhere else.

Judging from TV, Axl's voice is not what it used to be. Guitars are great as always.

Watched Rick Astley and Manic Street Preachers
live gigs today and they we're really good,but The Pretenders whole gig was outstanding with Macca watching from the stage and Johnny Marr guest on guitar and Dave Grohl guest on drums.
Absolutely brilliant gig and nothing will surpass that one with the gigs I watch on Sunday I'm sure.

Twinge of sadness seeing the Manics, I remember recording some of their Glastonbury set on VHS back in 1994, Richey was still alive. He’s almost 30 years gone and he could still be there. (Even though I don’t believe it could have went any other way either)

What I find sad is that they were on the smaller stage; not only that, but second on the bill? I know their heyday was back in the mid-to-late 90’s, but they’re such a legendary act. Yep: Richey Edwards-era Preachers was something else. I James Dean Bradfield said that, once Richey had gone, they lost a huge part of their imagery. Just compare how they looked circa Holy Bible to This is My Truth, Tell me Yours.

Richey’s been officially declared dead, I believe. The music lives on, though. Gold Against the Soul is an underrated album. Might play that one, later.

I saw the Manics on the Gold Against the Soul tour, at a festival ironically enough given the topic. Yes they were a different band with Richey the tone and aesthetic of the band changed completely after his disappearance.

I’ll never forget however sitting at a party the week Everything Must Go was released and hearing the record for the first time. Every tracks a single was my immediate reaction to hearing it. The rumour in the press before it was released was they would use some of Richeys lyrics and I wondered what that could sound like, then I heard Small Black Flowers in The Sky and it was beyond what I thought they could do.

I saw them twice on the Everything Must Go tour and could have seen them 3 times, some mates did, and being honest in a live setting the band’s sound hadn’t changed a lot without Richey.

Agreed on Gold Against the Soul, that is the album that made me a fan and all these years later the record (and its B Sides) still sound bloody good.

The last few years have seen some solo and collective Manics gold - JDBs solo 'Even in Exile' and the bands 'Ultra Vivid Lament'.

I haven't seen them since 2018 and the 'This is My Truth' shows: an album I never fully appreciated until that '18 reissue. Seeing them play it live was wonderful.
