Neil Young played his first-ever Glastonbury festival headline show on Friday June 26, inducing a mass singalong in the Pyramid stage field for much of the two-hour set.

Highlights of the set included a double-whammy of “Words” followed by “Heart of Gold” as well as “Cinnamon Girl” and “Down By The River”.

“Harvest Moon” – the rarely performed classic track, which Young has played at three shows recently (Koln, Nottingham and Aberdeen) didn’t materialise last night, as didn’t the much rumoured guests of David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash who are due to play the Pyramid Stage today (June 27).

Young’s encore was his customary set finale – a still-thrilling cover of The Beatles‘ “A Day In The Life” which definitely had the crowd screaming along.

Neil Young’s Glastonbury festival set list was:

’Hey Hey, My My (Into The Black)’
’Mansion On The Hill’
‘Are You Ready For The Country?’
‘Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere’
‘Spirit Road’
‘Words’
‘Cinnamon Girl’
‘Mother Earth’
‘The Needle And The Damage Done’
‘Comes A Time’
‘Unknown Legend’
‘Heart Of Gold’
‘Down By The River’
‘Get Behind The Wheel’
‘Rockin’ In The Free World’
‘A Day In The Life’
