RNR News and Notes

David Bowie's Sunday night closing set of the 2000 Glastonbury Festival has been regarded as one of the greatest sets in the fest's history ... and that's a pretty amazing claim considering some of the names that have played over the years.

 

And for those who missed the show - it will be released in its entirety on DVD, 2xCD, and 3x Vinyl on November 30th! 

 

Glastonbury organizer Emily Eavis had this to say about the set: 

“I often get asked what the best set I’ve seen here at Glastonbury is, and Bowie’s 2000 performance is always one which I think of first.  It was spellbinding; he had an absolutely enormous crowd transfixed. I think Bowie had a very deep relationship with Worthy Farm and he told some wonderful stories about his first time at the Festival in 1971, when he stayed at the farmhouse and performed at 6am as the sun was rising. And he just played the perfect headline set. It really was a very special and emotional show.”

Until its released on November 30, 2019, enjoy this clip of Bowie performing Heroes from the 2006 film Glastonbury that documented  the festival's history from  1970-2005.
