The Ting Tings play to ‘biggest John Peel crowd’ at Glastonbury

Fans spill out of the tent to watch Salford duo

The Ting Tings played before one of the biggest crowds of the weekend at Glastonbury this evening (June 27).

The John Peel Stage was filled to capacity, but there were almost as many people watching the show from outside the big top tent.

Taking to the stage slightly late due to traffic problems on the way, even the stage’s announcer was caught up in the occasion, declaring it was “the biggest crowd we’ve ever had on the John Peel Stage“.

The band then took to the stage, kicking off with a minimalist version of ‘We Walk’.

The duo then tore through the likes of ‘Great DJ’, ‘Traffic Light’ and iPod advert track ‘Shut Up And Let Me Go’.

“This is the biggest gig we’ve ever played,” declared singer Katie White midway through the set, before adding, “or will ever play!”

The band then got the whole of their massive crowd singing loudly as they finished with recent Number One ‘That’s Not My Name’.
