Morrissey slams David Cameron in Glastonbury set

By
Morrissey has played a mixture of old and new tracks on the Glastonbury Pyramid Stage tonight.

Quietly walking out, Morrissey opened his set with Smiths song 'I Want The One I Can't Have'.

Keeping audience banter to a minimum, Morrissey reeled through a list of popular songs including 'First Of The Gang To Die' and 'Everyday Is Like Sunday'.

"I will sing as fast as I can," he said. "I know you're all waiting to see U2."

Morrissey also included classic Smiths songs 'Shoplifters Of The World Unite' and 'There Is A Light That Never Goes Out'. He went on to joke: "If you can bear a new song - if you can bear an old song - 'People Are The Same Everywhere'," before beginning the track.

Morrissey introduced his band, hailing from London, Chicago and Mexico, all wearing the same grey polo shirt. He himself changed from a black shirt to a red one while the band performed an instrumental.

After playing a few more songs, Morrissey covered 'Satellite Of Love' by Lou Reed.

"I was very pleased to hear that a bill had passed today to stop using animals in circuses," Morrissey said. "I hear David Cameron tried to block the bill. What a silly twit." He then played 'Meat Is Murder'.

The set concluded with 'Irish Blood, English Heart' and 'This Charming Man'.
