Bruce Springsteen revealed that Coldplay's Chris Martin had told him of the unique atmosphere at the Glastonbury festival, ahead of The Boss's headline slot on Saturday. Springsteen told BBC's Steve Lamacq: "Chris Martin said it was very special and it's very close to the English heart. I'd read quite a lot about it before. Every year when you get the British music magazines it's always a big feature so I know it's a special gig."
Bruce Springsteen became The Boss of Glastonbury after a two-and-a-half hour crowd-pleasing headline set last night. Hits like Dancing in the Dark, Glory Days and Born To Run got fans moving as the star made his first UK festival appearance at the Somerset event. Springsteen got close to his British fans with repeated runs from the stage to sing right next to the front row.
Earlier, The Boss had made a surprise appearance on one song with The Gaslight Anthem during their slot on the John Peel Stage, the traditional home of new bands at the festival.
