Glastonbury: Alice’s Wolf plays ‘Incredible’ set after a race against time that saw them ask fans to get a private jet after a Los Angeles flight delay | Ents & Arts News

Wolf Alice was able to get to Glastonbury to play his group after desperately asking fans to get a private jet due to the cancellation of their Los Angeles flight to the UK.

The British band landed at Heathrow hours before their performance at festival At Worthy Farm, Somerset, on Friday afternoon.

They rocked the Pyramid scene for about an hour, followed by Robert Blunt and Allison Krause, Sam Fender, and then frontrunner Billie Eilish.

Stepping onto the stage, Wolf Alice singer Ellie Rowsell told the audience “Oh my gosh, you have no idea” after coming close to losing her group. “You have no idea. Let’s have some fun.”

The alt-rock band played a series of songs including tracks from their latest album Blue Weekend.

Before their last song, she added, “We didn’t think we’d get here today but we did and we’re really emotional.

“We hope you have the best weekend. This is the best festival in the world so I’m sure you will.”

Fans said Wolf Alice’s show was “amazing”, “unrealistic” and “exceptional”.

One wrote on Twitter: “This made me cry several times and I’m not ashamed to admit it. Best festival band for years…”

Another said: “I invested so much in Wolf Alice’s mission to make it from LA in time for her set at the Pyramid Theater in Glastonbury and I’m safe to say their set was fantastic.”

The group Don’t Delete Kisses has updated fans by posting a story to Instagram from inside a plane, flagging Heathrow Airport as a location this morning.

It comes after the band previously said they were stranded in Los Angeles after their trip to London was cancelled.

Wolf Ellis wrote on Twitter Thursday: “Does anyone have a private jet in LA?

“Our flight has been canceled and we need to get to Glastonbury, not kidding.”

Guitarist, Theo Ellis, posted a story on Instagram to say the travel problems persisted.

He asked, “Serious request, everything is canceled out of LAX, we desperately need a flight tonight. Anyone with a private jet?”

“Lol but really no. Tryna reach the pyramid style stage.”
