Rumored for years to be playing the annual Glastonbury festival, Springsteen finally makes his first appearance at Worthy Farm for the 39th annual Glasto, Bruce's first-ever festival performance in the U.K. "'I've heard about it... I've heard about it... I've heard about it... now I'm seeing it!" Mark Warham describes the scene for us: "Having been warned of the famed Glastonbury mud and told 'to wear boots you'll never want to wear again,' Bruce sported knee high leather wellingtons. But it was a great atmosphere at the end of a beautiful sunny afternoon—flags and banners waving everywhere. Bruce worked the crowd more than anyone else at Glasto over the weekend, and the crowd responded—especially to his visits to the front row."
Joe Richardson tells us: "Bruce followed Kasabian, who are a pretty heavy (dirty) rock band, very similar to Oasis who play lots of big songs which make little lyrical sense but get a certain crowd going.... and it was an intense, crushing pit. It was impossible for most Kasabian fans to get out without pulled out by security, so they all decided to stay. Despite not really wanting to be there, most of these young, non-Bruce fans wound up completely focused on Springsteen during the set and in awe of him by the end."
After collecting signs during "Raise Your Hand," Bruce granted requests for "Because the Night" and "No Surrender." The latter brought a special guest to the stage, Brian Fallon from the band The Gaslight Anthem. Earlier, Springsteen had joined his fellow New Jerseyans during their set on "The '59 Sound," and Fallon looked thrilled to be returning the favor.
With the BBC broadcasting, both on radio and TV, this will be the best documented show of the tour so far, preserving the night's most memorable visual. Richardson describes it: "An amazing moment came during "The River," when Bruce was actually smoking—steam rising off his body—which showed the crowd how much effort he was putting in. That moment sealed the performance for most of those around me."
Giving no quarter despite a ticking clock, Bruce played a five-song encore, closing with the huge crowd-pleasers "Glory Days" and "Dancing in the Dark." ("Land of Hope and Dreams" was not played as we originally reported.) The Daily Mirror reports that Bruce and the E Streeters broke "the 12.30 a.m curfew by nine minutes. [Glastonburg organizer Michael] Eavis will be fined £3,000, but he said it's worth it. 'The last nine minutes were spectacular. It was probably the best show of his life.'"
