The Virgins lose their 'Glastonbury virginity'

Donald Cummings and co make the most of their first time at the festival

The Virgins lose their 'Glastonbury virginity'
The Virgins popped their Glastonbury virginity this afternoon (June 26) on the John Peel Stage.

Living up to their name for once, the New Yorkers made their first ever appearance at the festival, and frontman Donald Cumming revealed he was making the most of it.

"We're called The Virgins, we're from New York City, this is the largest crowd we've ever seen," he told the audience. "This is our first Glastonbury, I went to the Stone Circle last night. I like it here!"

Kicking off with 'Teen Lover', the band had the crowd bouncing along, as for the first time the 2009 festival was bathed in sunshine.

Later the band got the crowd to clap along to former single 'Rich Girls'.

"Thanks a lot, that was a lot of fun!" declared Rob Brydon-lookalike Cummings ahead of closing track 'One Week Of Danger'.
