Metronomy followed the Manchester band on the William's Green stage
The 1975 were forced to interrupt their secret set on the William’s Green stage at Glastonbury Festival earlier this evening (June 27) after a fan threw a can onstage.
The band, who took to the packed stage shortly after 8.15pm, halted their set when a fight appeared to have broken out at the front of the crowd.
“Ladies and gentleman I’m sorry to disrupt your peaceful Glastonbury but someone just threw a can onstage,” frontman Matthew Healy told the crowd mid-way through the set. “I won’t have people fighting at my Glastonbury,” he added as bouncers escorted a man through the audience out of the packed tent. The band then continued their set, which comprised of material from their self-titled debut album, released in September 2013, with breakout hit ‘Chocolate’.
“Ladies and gentleman we have to hurry it up as we have a very special guest up next… it’s not Dolly Parton… or Metallica…,” continued Healy before set closer ‘Sex’.
The secret guest in question was Metronomy, who took to the stage shortly after 9.15pm dressed in trademark matching outfits – grey suits with black t shirts. Watch video footage of the set below.
Kicking off with disco jam ‘Holiday’, they then launched into ‘Radio Ladio’ before new track ‘Love Letter’. “This next song is all about Dolly Parton,” frontman Joe Mount said before ‘The Look’, which brought rapturous cheers from the crowd.
“Hello Glastonbury! Is everybody having a good time?” Mount said later in the set. “We were talking recently about the BBC coverage at Glastonbury… you should really say, ‘hello festival!'”
“But this next one is dedicated to everyone who has been here for a few days and hasn’t paced themselves,” he added before ‘The Upsetter’ and set-closer ‘The Bay’.
