James Blunt asks Glastonbury to get naked
James Blunt asked Glastonbury to get naked after playing to a packed-out Pyramid Stage this afternoon (June 28).

The smiling star ran from side to side of the stage clutching his guitar before starting the set.

A few songs in, an energetic Blunt joked: "You know if it gets too hot feel free to take your clothes off - especially the guys in the front row!"

The solo star then played tracks including 'High' and 'Wisemen'.

Switching from guitar to piano a few tracks in, Blunt then performed his hit single 'Goodbye My Lover' solo.

The singer's band then returned onstage for a cover of Slade's 'Coz I Luv You', which saw Blunt rocking out on the piano before running offstage to shake hands and hug members of the crowd.

Picking up his acoustic guitar the star and band then played 2005 worldwide hit 'You're Beautiful'.

Obviously touched at the sing-along, Blunt, who has played Glastonbury twice before, thanked the crowd, saying: "I know the media's trying to make something of it but we're here and up for a laugh."

Before final track '1973', Blunt exclaimed: "We've had a great time - thank you for having us Glastonbury, we'll see you out there."

With the set finished, Blunt told the crowd to put their arms in the air so he could take a photo.
