Band played 'The Globalist', 'Drones' and 'Mercy' to almost 75,000 people

Muse were the first act to headline the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury Festival this weekend, performing to a massive crowd on Friday night (June 24).

Headlining the Worthy Farm festival for the third time – first in 2004, and then again in 2010 – the three-piece played to a crowd of almost 75,000 with a set that spanned their wide discography.

NME‘s Mark Beaumont wrote of their set: “The crowd bring the flares, the band bring the tectonic riffs; everyone quickly realises that Muse, stripped of stage gimmicks for their third Pyramid Stage headline set, are quite enough spectacle on their own.”
