2020 Glastonbury Fest

Dancing and singing along with the rest With the sun beaming down It’s Glasto at its very best **** The teatime slot my favourite spot Iconic performances from idols past Still going strong as they sing all night long Never dreaming their fame it would last **** Sir Tom at 80 still wowing the crowds his voice so strong may he go on and on **** Resplendent in pink Dame Shirl gives a twirl that young lass from Wales with her voice she regales **** Dear Dolly lifts the crowd still begging Jolene **** Whilst Kenny is lamenting Lucille **** And sweet Caroline Well she's a favourite of mine Still shines like a Diamond Sweet Neil **** Barry alone now still reaching those highs seeing their smiles as he looks to the skies **** And Lionel still able to go All Night Long strutting the stage like a man half his age **** Sweet Kylie petite A perfect package complete **** Nile Rodgers and Chic sing along to Le Freak Nile is such a cool bloke his look so unique **** Then finally the master As darkness descends On that stage he appears and for many brings tears For just like Major Tom his soul has moved on but his genius survives in every word of every song **** Not even Covid 19 Could ever stop this show As I behold the very best of 2020 Glastonbury Fest...

It sounds like you were able to vicariously live through the festivals of the past, so I am glad to hear it.

I can just imagine you dancing and singing away to the music at the weekend,,, despite covid the show must go on and it was wonderful to see past performances.! I have never been tempted to go to Glastonbury but caught Bowie's performance at the weekend ... he was better then than when we had seen him in Birmingham years ago, :-) hugs Jan xx

Yes it was great to see all the "oldies" still giving their all, I loved it Jan. Bowie was a favourite of my son and I found his performance quite mesmorising - Neil would have loved it. I thoroughly enjoyed Glasto from the comfort of my home. Thinking of you this coming week Jan. With kindest thoughts and hugs Ann xx

I am always impressed when I see thousands of drunken Welsh singing in harmony! Beats the Mormon Tabernacle Choir any day! Aloha! Rico
