Great show but WHERE WAS CHARLOTTE WALCOTT ????
She stole the show for me at Manchester MEN (& on the DVD) but there was someone else in her place at Glastonbury .

Yeah, Charlotte left a while back - she hasn't been on this current run of dates. She must have another job.

*edit* She is in the musical Daddy Cool in Berlin.

The Guardian:

Where and when: Other stage, Saturday, 10.15pm

Dress code: Several costume changes taking in feathery hats, a tux, a king's crown and robes and, at the start, opaque orange cubes covering their heads. The backing dancers are dressed, at one point, as various New York landmarks. In other words, a big effort was made by all concerned.

What happened: Starting life as a band who never played live, over the past decade the Pet Shop Boys have turned into festival favourites. Ten years ago, their first show at Glastonbury was a big risk (they were second on the Pyramid stage bill, under Travis – remember them?) but they stormed it. Now, even up against Muse, they can more than hold their own with what is simply one of the best collections of songs in the whole of pop music – It's a Sin, West End Girls, Being Boring, What Have I Done to Deserve This?, all of which were played tonight. But the Pet Shop Boys didn't simply rely on their hits. Instead, they gave Glastonbury an elaborate stage show that took in dancers, confetti cannons and a huge white wall of boxes which was toppled and reconfigured in ever more elaborate shapes. Aligned to tunes as big as theirs, it couldn't fail, and it didn't.

Who's watching: A scanty group of devotees witnessed the opening song, Heart, but by the time they got to Suburbia the field was full - and everyone was singing along.

High point: It's a Sin and Left to My Own Devices were retooled by Stuart Price into turbo-nutter rave anthems.

Low point: King's Cross and Do I Have To? are catnip to hardcore Petheads, but risky when played to a crowd that ultimately wants the hits. There were also murmurings that they should have played their cover of Where the Streets Have No Name in tribute to their absent sparring partners U2.

In a tweet: West End Girls proves just as intoxicating in the west country, played by a perennially class act.


NME: Pet Shop Boys covered Coldplay during their headlining Glastonbury set tonight (June 26).

The British pop veterans, playing the event for the first time in 10 years, performed Chris Martin and co's ‘Viva La Vida’ as part of their hit-laden set on the Other Stage.

Among the classics performed were the band’s four UK Number One singles – set opener ‘Heart’, ‘Always On My Mind’, ‘It’s A Sin’ and the closing ‘West End Girls’.

‘What Have I Done To Deserve This?’ was performed with a image of the late Dusty Springfield on the screens, while her vocals from the original version were played.

After the performance frontman Neil Tennant, who changed outfits several times through the evening, said: “Glastonbury, let us remember the late, great Dusty Springfield," leading to huge ovation from the crowd.

The elaborate stage show included dancers with cardboard boxes on their heads and, during a New York-themed part of the set, the same performers wore costumes made to resemble some of the city’s big landmarks.

After the aforementioned 'West End Girls', Tennant said to the large crowd: “You’ve made two old men very happy. Thank you Glastonbury!”

Pet Shop Boys played:

'Heart'
'Did You See Me Coming?'
'Love Etc'
'Pandemonium'
'Building A Wall'
'Go West'
'Two Divided By Zero'
'Why Can't We Live Together?'
'New York City Boy'
'Always On My Mind'
'Closer To Heaven'
'Left To My Own Devices'
'Do I Have To?'
'King’s Cross'
'Jealousy'
'Suburbia'
'What Have I Done To Deserve This?'
'All Over The World'
'Se A Vida É'
'Viva La Vida'/'Domino Dancing'
'It's A Sin'
'Being Boring'
'West End Girls'

Sorry Pat, that's incorrect. I've just listened to it again (twice) and he says, "you've made two men very happy" (1:25:00 on the stream).

Must have got my wires crossed, you're correct.
