Madonna closed the first night of Radio 1‘s Big Weekend in Maidstone, Kent tonight (May 10) with reworked versions of her hits ‘Hung Up’ and ‘Music’.
Taking to the stage at 9.20pm (GMT), the star began her set with ‘Candy Shop’, taken from her recent Number One album ‘Hard Candy’, backed by a multitude of backing dancers and musicians.
A rock guitar-heavy version of 2005’s ‘Hung Up’ followed, before Madonna ended the 35-minute set with a minimal version of ‘Music’.
Earlier in the day, Foals performed to a packed second stage despite constant equipment problems.
The band played tracks including ‘Cassius’ and ‘The French Open’, before they were forced to curtail their set after ‘Red Sox Pugie’ due to time constraints.
We Are Scientists‘ Keith Murray was presented with a sheep-shaped birthday cake by Jo Whiley at the end of their set – as the crowd sang ‘happy birthday’ to the singer and guitarist, Murray tore off the head of the sheep and threw it into the crowd.
The group’s performance included tracks ‘All Sparks’ and ‘The Racing Rats’.
