The picture, which you can see below, sees the musicians and actor posing for the shot on Gallagher’s partner Sara Macdonald‘s Instagram page.
Noel Gallagher has been spotted at the festival but is not performing, while Ulrich headlined the event last night (June 29), lining the Pyramid Stage with a small battalion of fans waving Metallica flags and T-shirts reading ‘Peace, Love & Metal’. It was a set in which frontman James Hetfield told the crowd, “We’re very proud to be here and represent the heavier side of music.”
Though the crowd was sparser than for Arcade Fire the previous night, the band nevertheless proved a big draw. The booking has caused much debate among the band’s peers and Glastonbury-goers, and Metallica referenced some of the controversy, both in the merchandise sold on site, which quoted comments on their booking from Arctic Monkeys’ Alex Turner and Jarvis Cocker, and in a Julien Temple-directed video screened before their arrival.
Hetfield said to the crowd during the set: “Metallica is grateful to be invited to such an event called Glastonbury. We’re very proud to be here and represent the heavier side of music. I know it’s all represented here so why not heavy? This is dedicated not only to the crowd but to all the British heavy metal bands that have been dreaming and still dream of playing this stage here and uttering the words, Do you want heavy? Do you want heavy? Metallica gives you heavy!”
