Lionel Richie was bombarded with calls about performing at Glastonbury Festival.
The ‘All Night Long’ hitmaker took to the stage at Worthy Farm, Somerset today (28.06.15) – his first appearance at the festival – where he excited the crowd with a string of his biggest hits.
Addressing the hyped up revellers, he said: ”It has been a long time coming but finally I’m here doing Glastonbury. People kept calling me saying have you done Glastonbury yet.
”They said it’s gonna be a lot of rain and mud but I’ve brought the California sun with me. I’m going to try and play you as many songs as I can remember so let’s party with some Commodores.”
Belting out some of his most iconic tracks including ‘Three Times A Lady’, ‘Easy’ and ‘Dancing On The Ceiling’ at the festival, which is partnered by EE, the 66-year-old star was clearly thrilled by the audience’s reaction to his set.
Paying tribute to his biggest fans in the front row, he said: ”There’s some people here on the front row who know the lyrics better than I do so when I get it wrong they look at each other like, ‘That’s not how it goes.’
Before adding: ”I’m believing most of you came out today not to hear me sing but to hear yourselves sing. You guys are so loud I can’t even hear myself!”
