Calvin Harris performed two new songs from his forthcoming album 'Ready For The Weekend' last night (July 18) during the iTunes Live Festival '09 in London.

The dance floor slaying Scot threw the title track from his second LP, along with 'Flashback' and his Number One hit 'I'm Not Alone' into a crowd pleasing set at the Camden Roundhouse.

Despite apologising for his performance after eating a dodgy egg sandwich in the build up to the gig, the singer/producer still managed to get the crowd po-going in their masses as he fired out fan favourites 'Acceptable In The 80s' and 'Girls'.

"As some of you know or may not know, three days ago I ate a dodgy egg sandwich," he admitted. "So I'm not on top form tonight. That is not an excuse. Most of you know I'm not the best singer anyway."

Harris had no problems finishing off his set although he later joked to his roadcrew as he launched into 'What's Your Name?': "Have you got that bucket? You might need that bucket?"

Harris rounded off his show with chart topper 'I'm Not Alone' which saw the whole venue singing the song's catchy refrain.

He played:

'Disco Heat'
'Merrymaking At My Place'
'Ready For The Weekend'
'Acceptable In The 80s'
'What's Your Name?'
'I Created Disco'
'I'm Not Alone'

Earlier electro singer Mike Snow kicked off proceedings with a short set which included the track 'Sledgehammer'.

The iTunes Live Festival '09 continues tonight (July 19) with Bat For Lashes.
