The Fratellis inspire mass singalong at V Festival

The trio find the Chelmsford crowd in loud form

The Fratellis caused a mass singalong at their V Festival performance today (August 19).

The huge crowd sang loudly along to ‘Whistle For The Choir’ and ‘Got Ma Nuts For From A Hippy’ during their set at the event’s Chelmsford leg.

Overwhelmed by the warm reaction, singer Jon Fratelli said: “You guys look fucking awesome! Did I just say awesome?”

On stage they played in between two massive red and yellow flags with their logo in red on them.

The group were also joined by a three piece brass section including a saxophonist and a trumpeter who augmented the likes of ‘Henrietta’ and ‘Baby Fratelli’.

‘Ole Black ‘n’ Blue Eyes’ had an extended guitar solo and closer ‘Chelsea Dagger’ was played at double time.
