MGMT Play V Fest Gig With Liam Gallagher Cut Out Onstage
MGMT played a headline tent show at the V Festival tonight (August 23), covering Oasis and playing with a cardboard cut-out of the Manchester legends' singer Liam Gallagher on stage.
The gesture was a tribute to Gallagher's band, who had pulled out of a headline slot on the V Stage tonight due to Liam suffering from laryngitis.
Yesterday (August 22) the Brooklyn act had played at the same time as Oasis and had thanked fans for coming to see them despite the competition.
Andrew VanWyngarden and Ben Goldwasser opened their set with a version of Oasis' 'Live Forever', with the Liam cut-out placed at the front of the stage. The crowd responded with huge cheers, erupting into leaps and hand-waves when MGMT played their own hit 'Kids' next.
As well 'Kids' and similarly well-received older songs 'Time To Pretend' and 'Electric Feel', the band played new songs 'Congratulations', 'Song For Dan Treacy' and 'It's Working'.
The new songs are set for the duo's next album, due out next year.
Keeping chat to a minimum beyond asking the crowd "How're you doin'?", they ended their set with an encore of 'Pieces Of What' and an amped-up version of 'The Handshake', helping to close the final day of the 2009 festival.
'Live Forever' 'Kids' 'Of Moons, Birds & Monsters' 'Congratulations' 'Time To Pretend' 'Song For Dan Treacy' 'Weekend Wars' 'The Youth' 'Future Reflections' 'Electric Feel' 'It's Working' 'Pieces Of What' 'The Handshake'
