A Glasto arriva anche Lou…

Gorillaz were joined by a series of guests, including Lou Reed, Snoop Dogg and Shaun Ryder, as they headlined Glastonbury’s Pyramid Stage tonight (June 25).

Damon Albarn’s band were replacing U2 at the Somerset bash, after their singer Bono suffered a back injury and required surgery last month, forcing the cancellation.

The collective featured The Clash’s guitarist and bassist Mick Jones and Paul Simonon, plus a strings, brass band and Albarn himself on piano and vocals.

The group then welcomed De La Soul, Bobby Womack, The Fall’s Mark E Smith, Bashy and Kano to join them onstage at various points in the show.

Playing ’Welcome To The World Of The Plastic Beach’ early in the set, Gorillaz relied on screens featuring Snoop Dogg, despite the rapper playing the same stage earlier that day.

The no show led to huge surprise among fans – however, the rapper eventually appeared during last song of the night, performing the rap on ’Clint Eastwood’, dropping the words of his own hit ’Drop It Like It’s Hot’ over the song in place of Del The Funky Homosapien who performed on the original.

The set also featured Bobby Womack on vocals on ’Stylo’ – although Mos Def, who had been due to join him, had to cancel his festival appearence due to a family death – and ’Cloud Of Unknowing’, while Bashy and Kano rapped on ’White Flag’.

De La Soul appeared live for ’Superfast Jellyfish’ and ’Feel Good Inc’, while Happy Mondays singer Ryder reprised his singing role live on 2005 UK Number One single ’Dare’.

Elsewhere in the set, Mark E Smith performed vocals on ’Glitter Freeze’ – although he needed a little help, reading his lyrics from a printout.

Reed, meanwhile, was making his debut live performance with Gorillaz, having contributed vocals to ‘Some Kind Of Nature’ on recent album ’Plastic Beach’. He arrived on stage mid-set unannounced, playing a guitar solo before the song kicked in and he sang.

Albarn was headlining the festival on the Pyramid Stage for the second year in a row, having closed last year’s event as frontman of Blur . He was clearly enjoying his performance with Gorillaz, leading a huge singalong of ‘Pirate Jet’ before the four-song encore ended the show and the first night of musical action at Glastonbury 2010.

Gorillaz played:

‘Orchestra Intro’
‘Welcome To The World Of The Plastic Beach’
‘Last Living Souls’
‘O Green World’
‘Kids With Guns’
‘On Melancholy Hill’

Radiohead’s Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood played a surprise set at Glastonbury this evening (June 25).

The pair performed on the festival’s Park Stage after being introduced by Michael Eavis.

“Welcome to the biggest surprise of the weekend,” the festival organiser told the crowd. “There’s two superstars I’ll not name them but they’re right here.”

Seizing the moment, Yorke told the swelling crowd “Hi, my name is Thomas Yorke,” as he kicked things off, playing ‘The Eraser’ solo on the piano.

“Been in the studio all week with my first band,” he then told the crowd before building a loop around a funky bass riff for ‘Harrowdown Hill’.

He followed that with ‘Black Swan’ though had to restart the song once jokingly cursing “fucking amateurs!” at his slip.

Greenwood then joined his bandmate onstage, playing keys on ‘Cymbal Rush’.

The pair then both played guitars on ‘In Rainbows’ track ‘Weird Fishes/Arpeggi’.

‘Pyramid Song’ followed, with Greenwood taking a violin bow to his guitar while Yorke returned to the piano.

‘Idioteque’ saw the duo drop beats – mixed with a sample of an HGV’s reversing alarm – which got the now giant crowd dancing, before they played an acoustic version of ‘Karma Police’ triggering a mass singalong.

With the crowd singing the song’s “I lost myself” lyrics after the track had finished, Yorke then picked up his guitar and joined in with his audience.

He then launched into the band ‘Street Spirit (Fade Out)’. “Have a brilliant festival every one,” Yorke told the crowd as he left the stage, “see you guys later.”

Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood played:

‘The Eraser’
‘Harrowdown Hill’
‘Black Swan’
‘Cymbal Rush’
‘Weird Fishes/Arpeggi’
‘Pyramid Song’
‘Karma Police’
‘Street Spirit (Fade Out)’
