Christine & The Queens delivered one of the most ambitious and sprawling performances at this year’s Glastonbury Festival – check out our stunning photos from his set below.
The singer, who released his fourth album Paranoia, Angels, True Love earlier this year, played the record in full as he headlined the Woodsies Stage – with an captivating crowd proving that the bold decision was entirely worth it.
As ever, the show’s dramatic aesthetic was in keeping with the bold visuals expected from the star – who previously said that their latest album and its predecessor is inspired by Tony Kushner’s iconic AIDS epidemic play, Angels in America.
“This new record is the second part of an operatic gesture that also encompassed 2022’s Redcar les adorables étoiles. Taking inspiration from the glorious dramaturgy of Tony Kushner’s iconic play, Angels in America, Redcar felt colorful and absurd like Prior sent to his insane dream-space,” Chris previously said in a statement.
“The follow-up Paranoïa, Angels, True Love is a key towards heart-opening transformation, a prayer towards the self – the one that breathes through all the loves it is made of,” Chris added. “Prior’s real agony in Angels in America is a deep, painful becoming, a shedding of all waters and memories, that then allows angels to immerse deep too, and offer back profound, narrative-altering love – a rest in true love.”
Our photos, which you can see in full above, show the essence of the album coming to life down on Worthy Farm.
