Magic Numbers – Other Stage – Friday – 11am
I love the Magic Numbers so I was really looking forward to seeing them on the Other Stage on the Friday morning. It seemed to me to be a early time for them to be playing.
This year was full of really good bands playing early on the Other Stage and most of them got great crowds. The numbers were no different. A great crowd had turned up to see them especially as Rolf was playing the Pyramid Stage.
The numbers came on looking there debonair self’s, a band not scared to be themselves, they always seem to enjoy themselves and this seemed no different. They played a few hits but also played a few new songs, 4 by my count. Maybe one to many especially as they didn’t play any songs from their last album.
They got the crowd singing along with one of their new tracks, it was unfortunate that their new album had been delayed as I am sure all those new tracks would have gone down much better.
I Give the Magic Numbers 3 out of 5, A good but not great start to the festival.
