Pulp are set to play as ‘special guests’ on The Park stage at Glastonbury festival tonight (June 25) – and warmed up with a special London show last night.

The band played a gig at Central Saint Martins College yesterday – the institution singer Jarvis Cocker used to attend and mentioned in his lyrics to Pulp’s hit 'Common People'. They will play The Park at the Somerset bash at 7:45pm (BST) this evening – Radiohead played as ‘special guests’ on the same stage last night.

Last night at St Martins the returning band played a short set including 'Disco 2000', 'Common People', 'Sorted For E's & Wizz' and 'Bar Italia'. Tickets for the show weren’t sold to the public and were only available to staff, alumni and some graduating students. The gig was their first non-festival UK show since 2002.



The band made their UK comeback at the Isle Of Wight Festival earlier this month. Check NME.COM later on for a full report from Pulp’s Glastonbury show tonight.
