    Been watching on and off. Saw the Scissor Sisters who were great and then the Pet Shop Boys who were surprisingly very good.

    does look and sound rather special.

    They had pineapples on their head, they were wearing black horrible clothes, dim lighting, you couldn't hear the lead singer at all and the atmosphere was just generally bad. When the camera panned to the crowd they looked bored as.

    I think the problem with the PSB's live is that Neil Tennent has such a weak voice. Fine on record but live not so much.

    Didn't see any pineapples, black clothing is/was their style and from what I could see the crowd were singing along the whole time.
    I was never a PSB's fan but just thought they did well, especially given they're not that young anymore.

    I'm not necessarily having a dig, i just dont think they're all that live mainly due to Tennents voice.
    (Rent is one of my all time favorite songs)

    Muse are always great live. Odd collaboration with the Edge, but it seemed to work ok. Wish i was there instead of watching on bloody tv though Noticed a few comments about the pet shop boys age, is there an age limit on musicians now? *shrugs*

    i know and im just reminding you they are pensioners

    LOVE PSB and enjoyed every second of them on Glastonbury.

    I saw the Pet Shop Boys in December, I've been to quite a few gigs and that night was MENTAL. My 11 year-old niece's first concert,. so I thought it was sedate enough for her; wrong. It was an absolutely crazy atmosphere and some loon was bounding around, crushing us at the front (eventually ejected). The audience was pished and they were all "up for it" so it was a truly amazing, euphoric, exciting evening and what visuals!

    Think Neil was a bit overwhelmed by the rowdiness of the Glasgow audience (in a good way). Neil never proclaimed to be a good singer, they wanted to emulate NY hip-hop acts and Hi-NRG output in the early 80s when they got together.

    Pet Shop Boys' age shouldn't matter. They are pop through and through and still relevant (they do remixes for all sorts of artists). And of course Neilzo used to be assistant editor at Smash Hits.

    Not quite pensioners, for the record, Neil is 55, Chris is 50. Yes, I'm a fan and I love them still. Made my night seeing them re-do the whole set we saw 6 months ago.

    Muse looked amazing (enough to make me sit and watch about 90 minutes of it) and I am not really a fan, exactly how a headliner should be unlike the Gorillaz who were quite frankly appalling. Considering there are only 3 of them they really do sound good and all 3 are excellent in their own field. Agreed with the above, I saw Editors and thought they were up to their usual high standard.

    Haven't seen many other really good sets though. Seems a little flat to me this year. Groove Armada looked good though.

    God knows how they stand in that sun yesterday all day, you'd frazzle and I'm guessing there is little area to get of out if if required.

    Looking at today's line up I think I'd be packing my tent up this morning, Stevie Wonder headlining on a Sunday, come on.

    Aww carp, raped it last night and just about to play it now and my DVR has ******ed up!!

    Got back from Glasto tonight, what a brilliant weekend.

    Muse last night were amazing, highlight of our weekend.
    We skipped The Gorillaz and saw Flamin' Lips on the Other stage, and they were great.

    The weather was great, kept well sun creamed up and drank lots of "Fluids" and had a great time.

    Burgers were rough though.

    faithless......maxi still rockin it

    the man with the skinniest legs in history

    Loved Muse (Starlight, what a song)! I keep hearing Morten Harket/Billy MacKenzie singing that falsetto chorus, though that gives away my age away somewhat And we saw the Scissors at Barrowlands the other week, really love their new album! I'm not a Kylie fan but the audience appreciated her appearance!
