'Factory Girl' was turned into 'Glastonbury Girl' with lyrics about green wellies, Primal Scream and ecstasy.Weren’t there?? Here’s what you missed!

“I’m going to tell you something, you know it’s great to be here doing this show,” Jagger said from the stage before third song ‘Paint It, Black’, during which two flares were lit up in the crowd. “You all look amazing, after all these years they finally got around to asking us. Thank you Michael [Eavis].”

Guitarist Mick Taylor, who played with the band from 1969 to 1974, joined in for the next track, an extended version of ‘Can’t You Hear Me Knocking’. He left the stage before ‘Honky Tonk Women’, after which Jagger introduced the band, which included saxophonist Bobby Keys. After his own introduction, guitarist Keith Richards took vocals on a rambling ‘You Got The Silver’ and ‘Happy’. An animated Jagger took centre-stage again for Stones-go-disco track ‘Miss You’, at which point he invited the crowd to sing along to the high-pitched chorus.

Mick Taylor rejoined the band for a long ‘Midnight Rambler’, which seemed to test the patience of the crowd, and ‘2000 Light Years From Home’. The crowd perked up for a run of hits beginning with ‘Sympathy For The Devil’, which saw a giant mechanical phoenix atop the Pyramid Stage come alive, flapping its wings and raising its head before plumes of fire burst out from the top of the stage.
