Glastonbury bands pay tribute to Michael Jackson – video

Doves, VV Brown, Little Boots, Friendly Fires and many more remember the singer

Bands at last weekend’s (June 29-28) Glastonbury festival have paid tribute to Michael Jackson in a special NME.COM video.

The singer passed away the day before the event got underway (June 25), and his life and music was on the minds of many of the performers at Worthy Farm.

Jon McClure from Reverend And The Makers said he “shed a tear” when he heard the news, while Friendly Fires said his death was “sad”, particularly on the eve of his O2 Arena residency.

The Big Pink described the shock around his death as being bigger than that of Elvis Presley‘s, while Doves said the passing of a “great, great, songwriter and performer” was “tragic”.

Watch the video, which also includes Maximo Park, VV Brown, Fucked Up, Little Boots, Florence And The Machine and more, below.
