Morrissey, renowned for being a difficult character, arrived on time at Glastonbury 2011 to huge cheers as he joked with the crowd: "fancy seeing me here."
The set featured the now traditional mix of solo and Smiths material, with ‘This Charming Man’, ‘Shoplifters Of The World’ and ‘There Is A Light That Never Goes Out’ featuring from the latter.
Having debuted three new songs for BBC Radio 2 last week the 52-year-old singer played ‘People Are The Same Everywhere’ to the early evening crowd.
The former Smiths’ singer then went into an attack on David Cameron, branding him a “silly twat” for trying to prevent an act of parliament making the use of animals in circuses illegal which passed in Parliament today, despite Cameron’s protests.
The famed vegan then dropped ‘Meat Is Murder’.
The singer’s set clashed with both Mumford & Sons and Radiohead who played a secret set on The Park Stage this evening.
U2 succeeded Morrissey with a headline performance on the Pyramid Stage.
