Glastonbury 2000 documents David Bowie’s legendary Sunday-night headline performance on 25 June at the most famous festival on Earth.
The full 21-song performance is released here for the first time. The set includes many of David’s greatest hits. His performance of ‘Heroes’ became a highlight of the record-breaking ‘David Bowie Is…’ exhibition and is the only track here that has been previously released. The DVD features never-before-seen footage. Both audio and video have been newly mastered.
All formats include David’s diary, originally written for Time Out, which documents him preparing for the show in his own inimitable manner, and there is also new artwork from Jonathan Barnbrook (who worked with Bowie on the sleeves for Heathen, The Next Day and ★) and notes from renowned author and Bowie fan Caitlin Moran, who reviewed the show for The Times.
The package features photos of Bowie resplendently dressed in a three-quarter length one-of-a-kind Alexander McQueen frock coat, the pattern of which was made to echo the hat (the famous ‘bipperty-bopperty hat’ mentioned in the song ‘Queen Bitch’) worn by David at his Glastonbury Fayre debut in 1971.
