Kanye West Headlines Glastonbury

29-06-15

So what was the verdict on Kanye’s performance at Glastonbury?

Undoubtedly he put on a show with impressive stage lighting and even appearing atop a cherry picker at one point. He also reminded those in the audience that they were watching “the greatest living rock star on the planet”, a statement that The Who found debatable.

But after all the outrage at his name being on the legendary festivals bill, he wasn’t booed off the stage as some at Ladbrokes had hoped, although someone did manage to run on at the beginning of ‘Black Skinhead’ and was swiftly hauled off causing Kanye to start the song over.

The jury may still be out on whether he was worthy of the Pyramid stage and if you missed it you can watch the full performance on BBC IPlayer here and make your own mind up.
