20 minutes until The Who!

OK, it's getting very exciting backstage. The biggest tour bus in the world has just hoved into view, and a suited chap, who looks like he probably knew the Krays back in the day, is purposefully standing in front of the door.

OK, it’s getting very exciting backstage. The biggest tour bus in the world has just hoved into view, and a suited chap, who looks like he probably knew the Krays back in the day, is purposefully standing in front of the door.



Someone’s just passed me The Who set list — 20 tracks. I’ll post back immediately after they come off stage, around 11pm.

Meanwhile, I’ve been out in the crowd, just as the rain starts coming down. The Coral played a pretty raucous, rough-rounnd-the-edges set,which contrasted nicely with The Thrills (pictured below) earlier, who I felt were too polished. This kind of music needs a bit of ruffing up.

Thrills

The Coral certainly got things moving, particularly a song that sounded suspiciously like The Supremes’ “My World Is Empty Without You”. Anyway, the site is pretty full now, and despite the cloud and concerted attempts at rain, spirits are admirably high, people dancing, as it traditional, in the mud dressed completely innapropriately. The number of heels, short skirts, t-shirts and even Birkenstocks beggars belief, even if it is June.

Anyway, got to go and get a good spot for Roger, Pete and the chaps.

More later.
