Razorlight play the hits at V Festival 2009

Johnny Borrell keeps talking to a minimum at Weston Park

Razorlight played a hit-heavy set at the V Festival in Staffordshire this evening (August 23).

Frontman Johnny Borrell, who was dressed in a black coat, neckerchief and shades, said very little as his band dipped into their back catalogue for an hour-long set on the V Stage.

The group only played four tracks from their recent album ‘Slipway Fires’ – hit single ‘Wire To Wire’, ‘Hostage Of Love’ ‘Blood For Wild Blood’ and ‘North London Trash’.


The rest was loaded with hits from their first two albums as the crowd sang along to the likes of ‘Fall To Pieces’, ‘In The Morning’, ‘Stumble And Fall’ and ‘America’.

Razorlight played:

‘Back To The Start’
‘Keep The Right Profile’
‘In The Morning’
‘Stumble And Fall’
‘North London Trash’
‘Golden Touch’
‘Before I Fall To Pieces’
‘In The City’
‘Wire To Wire’
‘Blood For Wild Blood’
‘Hostage Of Love’
‘Somewhere Else’
