Headlining the Worthy Farm festival for the third time – first in 2004, and then again in 2010 – the three-piece played to a crowd of almost 75,000 with a set that spanned their wide discography.
NME‘s Mark Beaumont wrote of their set: “The crowd bring the flares, the band bring the tectonic riffs; everyone quickly realises that Muse, stripped of stage gimmicks for their third Pyramid Stage headline set, are quite enough spectacle on their own.”
Watch Muse perform ‘The Globalist’, ‘Drones’ and ‘Mercy’, plus their full Glastonbury set here.
Fans at the festival have since reacted to the showpiece gig on social media. Here’s a slice of the first responses from fans, celebrities and even politicians to Muse’s special festival performance.
