Emmy The Great compares her fate to Guns N’ Roses at Glastonbury

Singer kicks off day two at Worthy Farm

A chatty Emmy The Great woke up fans at the John Peel Stage as the second day of Glastonbury (June 28) got underway.

Backed by a full band, Emmy chatted with the crowd as she skipped between songs.

“I can’t believe the sun’s out,” she declared, before offering to sacrifice herself for weather, telling the crowd to “quick, go outside”.

Later, before ‘We Almost Had A Baby’, she explained that she had never played a festival “without my ex-boyfriend’s band playing, but it’s the first time we’re not on the same stage!”

Playing a host of songs set to appear on her so-far-unreleased album, Emmy compared her predicament to Axl Rose.

“This is a title track to an album that may never be released, like ‘Chinese Democracy‘,” she explained, ahead of a song that quoted Leonard Cohen‘s ‘Hallelujah’, before adding: “That’s not a political joke, but a Guns N’ Roses joke!”

After playing tracks including ‘MIA‘, ‘Canopies And Grapes‘ and ‘Gabrielle‘, Emmy wrapped things up in chaotic fashion, asking: “Oh, can I use this opportunity to tell my brother that I can charge his phone up? Let’s meet after.”
