Mumford & Sons close Glastonbury in style

Mumford & Sons closed the 2013 Glastonbury Festival with a star studded version of the Beatles “A Little Help From My Friends”.

The song featured a whole host of artists including members of Vampire Weekend, the Vaccines and folk-rock groups First Aid Kit and the Staves. It was a triumphant moment for the group who recently had to cancel a number of gigs after it was discovered bassist Ted Dwane had a blood clot.

The group played and incredibly high paced 90 minute set from the Pyramid set that included songs from both “Sigh no More” and 2012’s “Babel”. Dwane seemed to show no ill-affects of the surgery and Marcus Mumford announced to the crowd “Also, Ted’s fucking alive, isn’t he?” which received huge cheers.

Keyboard player Ben Lovett told the crowd “We’ve been a band for going on six years. The Rolling Stones have been a band for much longer than that. The big difference between them and us is that we’ve played Glastonbury five times now. You bring us back every year … Glastonbury, thank you for everything.”
