Reverend And The Makers triumph at Glastonbury

Fans brave the mud to watch John McClure and co

Reverend And The Makers were greeted by a huge crowd at Glastonbury tonight (June 27) – despite the muddy conditions around the John Peel Stage.

Taking the stage wearing a hoodie and jeans, a mohawked John McClure and his band had the crowd chanting from the opening note.

Starting the set with ‘Heavyweight Champion Of The World’, despite the sound being quiet, McClure bounced around onstage throughout the gig.

Attracting a big crowd, even though the tent space was extremely muddy, the band and their enigmatic frontman proved as entertaining as ever.

Jogging on the spot before launching into ‘The State Of Things’, McClure whipped the crowd into a sing-along frenzy.

Darting from the stage to the front of crowd throughout the set, McClure and his band finished with ‘He Said He Loved Me’, which saw the band and crowd rocking out through the elongated breakdown.

Reverend And The Makers played:

‘Heavyweight Champion Of The World’


‘What The Milkman Saw’

‘Silence Is Talking’

‘The State Of Things’


‘The Machine’

‘He Said He Loved Me’
