Two Door Cinema Club compare Prince Charles to ‘Fast Show’ character

Irish band also pack out The Queens Head for Glastonbury set

Two Door Cinema Club likened Prince Charles to a character from comedy programme The Fast Show ahead of their Glastonbury performance this afternoon (June 24).

The band, who met the Prince at Worthy Farm earlier on the day when he visited the site, later played The Queens Head tent to a huge crowd who were eager to get their weekend’s gig-going off to a good start.

Speaking to NME about the royal meeting, frontman Alex Trimble said he chatted to Charles around the backstage area of the tent.


“He was a bit like the old guy from The Fast Show,” the singer joked, as fans packed out The Queens Head for the trio’s early evening performance, with hundreds more queuing outside to try and get a glimpse.

Kicking off with ‘Cigarettes In The Theatre’, the band ran through tracks from their debut album ‘Tourist History’, including the likes of ‘What You Know’, ‘Eat That Up It’s Good For You’ and ‘Undercover Martyn’.

Two Door Cinema Club played:

‘Cigarettes In The Theatre’
‘Undercover Martyn’
‘Something Good Can Work’
‘This Is The Life’
‘Costume Party’
‘You’re Not Stubborn’
‘What You Know’
‘Eat That Up It’s Good For You’
‘Come Back Home’
‘I Can Talk’
