Diamonds and Dizzee

Again with the fetal position.....

My girl, Casey, and I saw these lads on their first North American tour, and they still had acne. Now they're headlining Glasto. I have a somewhat maternal sense of pride with them... even though I'm (only) 10 years older....

Arctic Monkeys were joined by special guest Dizzee Rascal when they headlined the Glastonbury Festival tonight (June 22)- and they also threw in a surprise cover.

Arctic Monkeys then sprung another surprise on the crowd.

"We liked to play a cover for you, like we said it only happens once, so we want to do something special for you, we're thrilled to be here," explained Turner of the next song which saw producer and Simian Mobile Disco member James Ford join them on the aforementioned organ.

"Shirley Bassey is playing on Sunday, so this one is for Shirley," added the singer as his band launched into her 1971 Bond theme 'Diamonds Are Forever'.
