Ian Brown recovered from a violent incident with a fan at a gig the previous night to win over the Isle of Wight festival.

Brown was sporting an eye wound after an incident with a fan at his warm up in Sheffield during which he fell from the stage.

Banning photographers from the pit, Brown did lift his sunglasses as he took the stage to show off the wound telling the crowd: "I got pulled off the stage yesterday. I had to have stitches. I've still got one eye on you though."

After a slow start during which he complained, "You seem a bit jaded, have you had too much liquor?" he hit his stride with 'Keep what ya got' and 'Dolphins are Monkeys'. Stripping off his body warmer to reveal a 'God Save the Queen' t-shirt, in tribute to the Sex Pistols, he then ended his shortened set with a storming version of 'FEAR'

Ian Brown played:

'The World Is Yours'
'Street Children'
'On Track'
'Time is my Everything'
'Love Bug'
'Destiny or Circumstance'
'Keep What Ya Got'
'Longsight M13'
'Dolphins are Monkeys'
'Golden Gaze'
'Save Us'
'FEAR'
