Singer-songwriter gets into the festival spirit at Staffordshire
Jamie T played a rain drenched set at the 4 Music Stage at the V Festival this afternoon (August 21).
The troubadour, who was backed by his band The Pacemakers, sent off his second album ‘Kings & Queens’ with a rousing set which featured six tracks from his 2009 LP.
Getting into the festival spirit early on the singer, who was wearing a black baseball cap and green anorak, urged the crowd to sing the chorus to album opener ‘368’
“Seeing as though we’re at a festival and it is one of our last, how’s about helping me out,” he told the crowd as he asked them to sing the words back to him.
Later the crowd sang along to his debut single ‘Sheila’ before he asked: “How’s the festival going? Is everyone drunk yet? Well you should be.”
As he rounded his set off with ‘Sticks ‘N’ Stones’ he shouted to the crowd: “Say hallelujah, say boobies,” to huge cheers.
Jamie T played:
‘The Man’s Machine’
‘So Lonely Was The Ballad’
‘Earth, Wind & Fire’
‘Back In The Game’
‘If You’ve Got The Money’
‘Sticks ‘N’ Stones’
