Playing Glastonbury for the first time since 1971, Bowie told the crowd, "I'm having a fucking brilliant time."
"David Bowie has told a British newspaper that his Glastonbury appearance will be his last for 18 months. "
"He is clearly enjoying himself as Bowie regales the crowd with anecdotes of his previous appearances at the festival..."
"Proof, if you need it, that Bowie's contribution to late 20th Century pop culture has been immense."
"Bowie himself said, 'It is alarming how I enjoy playing the old songs again, for I was determined never to do so. It was driving me insane, singing them in the old days. ... And being a musician myself, I can sense when some of my colleagues just wade through their shows and don't really want to sing this or that song. I never want my audience to feel that ... I sing with enthusiasm, and and I believe my audience is capable of picking up that enthusiasm and using it for themselves.'"
