“I was privileged to be at Glastonbury only once and it was an amazing experience that I will never forget.
I grew up in Israel and David Bowie was my musical hero from a very young age. I already got to see him in Israel in 1996 and New York in 1997 and I was just waiting for the next opportunity to see him again. In 1998 he was not touring and in 1999 he had a very small tour that was hard to get tickets to, so as soon as he announced a single appearance for 2000 at Glastonbury, it was clear to me that I must be there.
I didn’t find any partners to come with me to the festival, so I remember it was challenging to travel alone to Glastonbury and set up a tent there. But my love for Bowie was above it all.
The first night I was lucky enough to see the Nine Inch Nails for the first time (which I’ve seen dozens of times since) who gave a tremendous performance on the Other Stage and were also a significant reason for me to embark on this journey.
David Bowie was due to perform on the Pyramid Stage on the last night of the festival and I made my way to the front row hours before the show. From the first second, it was clear that this was an amazing show – with “Wild Is The Wind” as the opener song and “China Girl” to follow.
Then Bowie said the genius sentence “Oh Glastonbury, you’ve got a very, very lucky face, all of you!” and it was so true. After 10 years of avoiding doing a hits show, he performed all of them and it was an amazing night. a night to remember.”
