“I gazed a gazely stare at all the thousands here”
Andrew Trendell at NME has written a piece titled: ‘Glastonbury 2000: The night Bowie reclaimed his legend’, with a subdeck of: ‘Imagine the perfect Glastonbury Festival evening. Or just watch this film so you don’t have to.’
Here’s the conclusion to the piece:
“In sitting his newer material alongside the unretired classics with a performance so consummate and a band so accomplished, Bowie reset the dialogue to focus on his vitality, paving the way for his latter work on ‘Heathen’, ‘Reality, ‘The Next Day’ and his perfect curtain call, ‘Blackstar’. He reclaimed his legend, and gave Glastonbury a night for all time.”
