The Fratellis begin Isle Of Wight 2007 climax
The Isle Of Wight Festival 2007 moved into its final day (June 10) with The Fratellis taking to the Main Stage.

The Scottish trio boasted one of the loudest sing-a-longs of the weekend, with their chanting refrain of ’Chelsea Dagger’ echoing right around Seaclose Park as the whole audience joined in.

The band also included hits 'Whistle For The Choir', 'Doginabag' and opener ’Baby Fratelli’ in their late afternoon set.

The group also had a pop at tonight's headliners The Rolling Stones.

Bassist Barry Fratelli sported a "Who the fuck is Mick Jagger" t-shirt, while singer Jon moaned about the extended walkways the veteran band had added to the stage set over night ahead of their performance later, suggesting they were "bad karma".

The Fratellis played:

'Baby Fratelli'
'Everybody Knows You Cried Last Night'
'Vince The Loveable Stoner'
'For The Girl'
'Cuntry Boys & City Girls'
'Ole Black n Blue Eyes'
'Whistle For The Choir'
'Got Ma Nuts From A Hippie'
'Chelsea Dagger'

Earlier the festival witnessed a performance from former Spice Girl Mel C, who played her first festival since 1999.

She latter admitted there was "some truth" in the rumours that her old band might be reforming, saying there "had been talks".

Meanwhile MOR singer-songwriters James Morrison and Paolo Nutini also played sets with the latter being watched by The Rolling Stones' Keith Richards and Ronnie Wood from the side of the stage as he played a set that included a cover from Disney's 'The Jungle Book', 'I Want To Be A Mancub'.

The festival will now continue withperformances from Keane and headliners The Rolling Stones who are playing their first UK festival since 1976. They are expected to be joined for guest spots by Nutini and Amy Winehouse.
