Singer admits to feeling the pressure ahead of the band's Worthy Farm debut
The Irish four-piece made their debut at the three-day event after pulling out in 2010 due to Bono suffering a back injury. He admitted feeling the pressure in the build-up to their performance on the Pyramid Stage.
“I wanted to throw up,” he told the BBC. “Whenever you see me giving up a lot of attitude that means I’m terrified. I felt like I was going to retch at the side of the stage.”
The band played a greatest hits set which leaned heavily towards their 1991 album ‘Achtung Baby’.
Violence broke out in the crowd during the show between security guards and a group of audience members protesting about the band’s handling of their finances.
The Art Uncut group had inflated a huge sign in the crowd with the message ‘U pay tax 2?’ on it before security stepped in.
