  • Talk about lucky. Hadn’t heard the rumour, was heading up to the Park to chill out for a bit and wondered how come so many people had had the same idea… arrived at the lip of the amphitheatre just as the first chords of The Eraser rang out and managed to get to a vantage point just before he started Harrowdown Hill. Made my day :o)

  • so, who wants the audio for this? B+ recording in full.. was in my tent 10min walk away from stage, when the update came from this very site :)

  • Heard about this early in the afternoon from a fellow Glasto visitor. I knew it was just a ‘rumour’, but just in case I skipped Florence + The Machine to check it out. It became very clear that it indeed was going to be Thom, and since Jonny’s guitar tech was there too I knew at least Jonny would be there as well. 2nd row from stage. Insane.

  • I don’t think Thom wrote that. I’ve never seen him spell his name Tom !
