Pet Shop Boys cover Coldplay at Glastonbury

The duo are also joined by a 'virtual' Dusty Springfield during their headline set

Pet Shop Boys covered Coldplay during their headlining Glastonbury set tonight (June 26).

The British pop veterans, playing the event for the first time in 10 years, performed Chris Martin and co’s ‘Viva La Vida’ as part of their hit-laden set on the Other Stage.

Among the classics performed were the band’s four UK Number One singles – set opener ‘Heart’, ‘Always On My Mind’, ‘It’s A Sin’ and the closing ‘West End Girls’.

‘What Have I Done To Deserve This?’ was performed with a image of the late Dusty Springfield on the screens, while her vocals from the original version were played.

After the performance frontman Neil Tennant, who changed outfits several times through the evening, said: “Glastonbury, let us remember the late, great Dusty Springfield,” leading to huge ovation from the crowd.

The elaborate stage show included dancers with cardboard boxes on their heads and, during a New York-themed part of the set, the same performers wore costumes made to resemble some of the city’s big landmarks.

After the aforementioned ‘West End Girls’, Tennant said to the large crowd: “You’ve made two old men very happy. Thank you Glastonbury!”
