Arctic Monkeys closed out the first day of the 2013 Glastonbury Festival last night (June 28th) with their second-career headline appearance at Worthy Farm.

Frontman Alex Turner, these days barely recognisable in both appearance and demeanour from the quiet, sullen figure he cut six years ago, led the Sheffield band through a tight, confident bill-topping gig, which went along way in laying to rest any lingering ghosts of 2007.

As promised, they aired a set featuring some early favourites along side more recent material, and boldly opened the show with a performance of their recently unveiled single ‘Do I Wanna Know?‘ – to a strong response from the crowd – before launching into a highly charged ‘Brianstorm‘.

After Turner had joined his Last Shadow Puppets bandmate Miles Kane in the John Peel Tent earlier on in the day, Kane returned the favour and arrived onstage for a rendition of set closer ‘505‘.
