Townshend throws a sly jab at Glastonbury competition

Trending Now

Despite the rain which greets The Who as they arrive on stage, Roger Daltrey, Pete Townshend and co turn in a blistering festival performance.

Introducing the band’s set, Townshend tells the audience he’s just come from Glastonbury — and the good news is, Knowsley Hall is “better than” the competition! How that’ll be received when word of Townshend’s comments reaches the Vale of Avalon — where The Who headline tomorrow — remains to be seen.

Playing for two hours, the band pull out all the stops to deliver the perfect festival greatest hits set, covering 20 songs.
