A pin drop could be heard at Glastonbury, as thousands of revellers held a minute's silence for those who lost their lives in the Grenfell Tower fire and the Manchester and London terror attacks.
New Order and Joy Division star Peter Hook was asked by festival organiser Michael Eavis to lead the silence.
He said: "Welcome to Glastonbury I've been very kindly asked by the Eavis family to lead this minute's silence and could we please use it as a chance to send our hopes and our prayers for love, life and freedom- the things that we are here to celebrate.
"We send our sympathies to everyone affected by the events in London and Manchester and everyone affected in Grenfell Tower. God bless you all and thank you."
The silence took place at 10.40am and festival goers waved flags saying "We Love MCR" while many wore images of the worker bee, a symbol of Manchester.
Happy Mondays star Rowetta, wearing a black top spelling out "Manchester" before revealing a black and yellow bee dress, added: “You’ve got the love Glastonbury, now let’s party.”
The duo were joined on the Pyramid Stage by the Manchester Camerata and DJ Graeme Park to perform as Hacienda Classical - which reimagines the dance tunes synonymous with Manchester’s most famous superclub as classical compositions.
Afterwards Hook spoke of the “enormous honour” to be asked to open this year’s event and honour victims of the recent tragedies in Manchester and London.
He said: “It was wonderful, but the minute’s silence was tough.
"I’ve never seen Rowetta so frightened but it really was an honour to be asked to do that.
“My god it must have been 100,000 people out there, it was wonderful to see everyone come out.”
