Glastonbury Setlists for Nile Rodgers, Barry Gibb and Dropkick Murphys

This year’s Glastonbury Festival came to a close on Sunday with a set from Ed Sheeran, the only non-veteran artist to headline this year, but there were a number of veterans playing throughout the day.

Barry Gibb kept it all Bee Gees for his sixteen song set, not singing any songs from his latest solo album. Dipping back as far as the early single, Spicks and Specks, the only surviving Gibb brother touched on most phases of the group’s career including a couple of songs that they wrote for other artists.

The set list:

Jive Talkin’ (from the Bee Gees’ Main Course, 1975)
You Should Be Dancing (from the Bee Gees’ Children of the World, 1976)
Lonely Days (from the Bee Gees’ 2 Years On, 1970)
How Can You Mend a Broken Heart? (from the Bee Gees’ Trafalgar, 1971)
To Love Somebody (from Bee Gees’ 1st, 1967)
Stayin’ Alive (from the Saturday Night Fever Soundtrack, 1977)
I’ve Gotta Get a Message to You (from the Bee Gees’ Idea, 1968)
How Deep Is Your Love? (from the Saturday Night Fever Soundtrack, 1977)

Night Fever / More Than a Woman (from the Saturday Night Fever Soundtrack, 1977)
Nights on Broadway (from the Bee Gees’ Main Course, 1975)
Words (single, 1968)
Tragedy (from the Bee Gees’ Spirits Having Flown, 1979)

Chic Featuring Nile Rodgers played an all hits set with six of the eleven songs being tracks that Rodgers produced for other artists including two for Diana Ross, two for Sister Sledge and one each for David Bowie and Daft Punk.

What was missing, though, was Chic’s very first big hit, Dance, Dance, Dance.

Everybody Dance (from Chic, 1977)
I Want Your Love (from C’est Chic, 1978)
I’m Coming Out (from Diana Ross’ diana, 1980)
Upside Down (from Diana Ross’ diana, 1980)

Get Lucky (from Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories, 2013)
Let’s Dance (from David Bowie’s Let’s Dance, 1983)
Le Freak (from C’est Chic, 1978)
Good Times (from Risque, 1979)

The raucous Dropkick Murphys brought their latest album, 11 Short Stories of Pain & Glory, to Worthy Farm, mixing six of its songs among the twenty tracks played.

Short Stories is the band’s ninth album and, over their Glastonbury set, they managed to work in at least one song from each.
