Stevie Wonder closes Glastonbury

7 years ago760 views



Music legend Stevie Wonder brought the Glastonbury music festival to a close.

The US star, 60, was the final headliner on the Pyramid stage and thrilled the crowds with many of his greatest hits including Superstition, Signed, Sealed, Delivered I'm Yours, plus a cover of Human Nature, as a tribute to Michael Jackson.

The Motown favourite also celebrated the event's 40th anniversary. He was joined by festival organiser Michael Eavis for his last song Happy Birthday.

This year revellers went for bikinis and bare chests instead of the traditional raincoats and wellies. It is the first time the four-day event has been completely dry since 2002.

As well as Wonder, the show on Mr Eavis's dairy farm in Pilton, Somerset, also saw appearances from Shakira, Muse, Radiohead and Snoop Dogg. The Scissor Sisters were joined by special guest Kylie, who had to pull out of Glasto in 2005 when she was battling breast cancer.

Festival-goers were also able to see England's humiliating World Cup defeat. Around 80,000 supporters watched the action on two giant screens which were specially erected.
