Will Young bigs-up Kings Of Leon at Glastonbury

Pop Idol star also covers Joni Mitchell song

Will Young paid tribute to Kings Of Leon at Glastonbury today (June 28).

The Pop Idol singer told the crowd that last night’s (June 27) Pyramid Stage headliners were the draw for him.

“They are the only band I’ve left my Winnebago for this weekend,” he said during his set on the Avalon Stage. “Weren’t they just fantastic?”


Playing a career-spanning set to a largely female crowd, Young rolled out hits including ‘Leave Right Now’ and ‘Love Is A Matter Of Distance’.

Young also covered Joni Mitchell‘s ‘Help Me’.

“It’s taken me six and a half years, but I’ve finally made it to Glastonbury,” the singer said before performing ‘Your Game’.

Before ending his set, Young got the crowd involved in the show, dragging a fan onstage where he swapped hats with him.
