Julian, flanked by the Sick Six instead of the Feuding Four, kicked off the set with “Automatic Stop” and also covered The Modern Age and Hard To Explain in the set. The crowd at the John Peel Stage was reportedly extremely ecstatic during each Strokes track, especially during “Ludlow St.” when Julian climbed the lighting rig and sang the entire song from the structure(*).
(* = Could this be because this is the slowest tempo track in the setlist and because it lasts nearly six minutes? So, just try to keep the audience’s attention before the Christmas song by doing some death-defying climbing?)
“Glastonbury… we’re very privileged and happy to be here,” Julian said during the gig.
The setlist, via NME:
‘River Of Breaklights’
‘Hard To Explain’
‘Out Of The Blue’
‘You Only Live Once’/’The Modern Age’
‘I Wish It Was Christmas Today’
