A bit late, but I'm new to this site and I'm trying to catch up!!
This was the 1st time I saw them live, and what a way to start...headlining on the Pyramid Stage on the Saturday night of Glastonbury!!
I was already a fan of their music, but what surprised (and delighted) me was how much heavier and rockier their sound is live...and with just how much enthusiasm they play!! They were clearly delighted to be there. The year before they'd been further down the lineup on the other stage, and suddenly there'd been this stratospheric leap. Fran was just beaming the whole time and kept telling us how beautiful we all looked!....It must have been pretty quiet at all the other stages, cos it looked to me as if the whole festival crowd had turned up to watch, and the atmosphere was absolutely electric! The whole ground moved as 100,000 people jumped to WDIAROM..and the sound of us all singing along to Baby One More Time was classic!
This gig catapaulted me from just liking their music to becoming a complete (and slightly obsessive!) fan of the band. 5 years on they're still seem as grounded as they were that night...and they're still so exciting to watch live.
Thank you for giving me so many memorable nights over the last years, guys!
