Twas fab xx

Not good 😞

Very disappointed ,Tom Odell good artist but not vibrant. I am not convinced by the announcer stating that 3 doctors examined her ....I work for the NHS & there's no way you can get more than one doctor via 111, to examine one patient in Somerset! 😢 I think a refund or free admission to Sunday Glastonbury festival next year would suffice with your Extravaganza ticket,what do think Mr Eavis.

Great night.

Huge disappointment. Rumours abound re real reason? Not lost voice! I came to see Paloma. Don’t think it should end here?

Unfortunately I don’t think artists take the Extravaganza seriously. We’ve had a few pull out now all with “laryngitis “.

We booked for Joan Armatrating, same story, never again.

Strange how this keeps happening. Waste of money paying to see acts that don’t appear.

Wasn’t at all bothered by Paloma Faiths pull out , the replacements were fantastic

Not sure what to think apart from how very disappointing and after traveling in some hideous traffic from Oxfordshire although doubtless it would happen, I’d kind of like my money back Mr Eavis, we love Glastonbury but didn’t need to part with £70 to enjoy the surroundings for something that wasn’t as advertised ☹️

Had a fantastic evening. You pulled out all the stops to prevent the evening being cancelled (which to those who had travelled - although I thought this event was more of a ‘local event’ and not to be confused with the Glastonbury Festival) would surely have been worse! I can understand people may feel disappointed but WOW - Tom Odell as a last minute replacement 👍. Despite what must have been a nightmare backstage you provided us with a lovely evening of entertainment. Well done to all of the organisers - you did us ‘locals’ proud xx

It must have been stressful for the organisers when Paloma cancelled literally just before she walked on stage. It’s nobody’s fault . Not hers or the organisers. It is disappointing though for people who travelled a long way or stayed overnight to come and see her but at least we got to watch another couple of artists and those amazing fireworks rather than just being sent away. Maybe Paloma will do something when she’s better. Re-schedule somewhere and get in with our tickets maybe. Xx

I’m sure Paloma tries to get onstage but she’s only human. Tom Odell did a fab job just him and his piano. Great evening and event as usual.

What I don’t understand is that laryngitis doesn’t suddenly occur, paloma must have known earlier that she was ill! A very expensive £210 + £120 taxi for our posh picnic 😞

Oh, so much whinging!! ...Who do you call when you need a performer without a band, who needs no rehearsal, who is known by many AND available at the drop of a hat. The choices are limited and we got a big fish from that tiny pool and one that gave it his best! Well done to the organising team, who sent us home having had a different experience, but still a fantastic, sunshine-infused, firework-finaled musical extravaganza. Rodney Branigan was a great call too - we were chuffed to discover him!!

Thank you thank you, we travelled from Jersey to be there. Best couple of days I’ve had in years, Glastonbury is a must see for everyone, feel completely chilled out just for visiting there and the extravaganza was the cherry on the cake. While it was a bit of a shock to hear Paloma was not coming on, how amazing are the team to pull out all the stops and get not just one but two amazing performers! Rodney Brannigan spellbound me, what an artist, and i really felt like the cat that got the cream when Tom Odell arrived. Legendary, thank you for making my year xxxx

Well done to Tom Odell. What a professional.

They think we’re suckers ! And how The stage was never set up for Paloma’s band - they knew she wasn’t going on much much earlier but got us in under false pretences and spun a yarn about her suddenly getting ill at 8 o’clock . Just maybe it’s all an untruth and to do with last minute contract discrepancies ?! Cynical old me ......

Although I understand that people get ill, as other people have pointed out, this was not the last minute revelation we were told it was, Tom Odell may be what some people like, but not my cup of tea. I feel let down and let down at the last minute having made arrangements to be at the day, as had many others. More notice would have been better, maybe I could have found a Tom Odell fan to give my tickets. I have lost a lot of respect and trust for the organisers, not just Mr Evis. The news could have been handled better. Other events I have had tickets for and the singer has had to cancel, I have had a refund. The fact they have the clause that allows them to replace last minute with whoever they can get shows that they care more about the event carrying on than the enjoyment of the people turning up. Despite Tom Odell not being what I wanted to watch, I applaud his braveness and professionalism in turning up to what was in places a hostile audience, and with many people leaving as he came on. What a horrible position to put him in.

Why did she cancel?

I'd have paid £35 just to hear that amazing DJ. Didnt carch his name. Jason somebody. He got the party started.

Thank-you so much for having me perform! Thought I was gonna be supporting Paloma Faith and ended up supporting Tom Odell!! 🤣🤩 It was such a shame that Paloma couldn’t perform but vocal chords are delicate & precious.. I’m sure the decision wasn’t made lightly. Thanks to the whole Glasto team & to Michael! Best day ever for me, Thankyou!! 💗🎤

We're deeply sorry to announce Paloma Faith has been forced to cancel her performance at tonight's Abbey Extravaganza.

Having been seen by a doctor backstage at today's event, Paloma has been diagnosed with acute laryngitis and been declared unfit to perform. She is incredibly disappointed to have to withdraw and sends her sincere apologies.

Despite the extremely late notice, we're very pleased to have been able to secure a replacement headliner. The acclaimed singer-songwriter Tom Odell is currently en route to the site by helicopter. We hope you will extend him a very warm welcome.

Epic effort by the organisers and to Tom Odell !

Result!

Just touched down on Tor leisure field.

It’s the family of six next to me I feel sorry for. Spent over £300 for this evening which they saved for. Will they be reimbursed?

Quite an entrance

Couldn't stop for Tom Odell but what an amazing set by Yazzy 😍

Michael Cox did we jinx her?

Good of him to step in.

The compare has just reminded us that Paloma has merchandise on sale. Have you no consideration,,,,, pathetic.

Hell of a replacement!

Oh shit who's that?

Glad I chose not to get tickets this year!!!

Being as Paloma has cancelled... my dog asks *pretty please if you could cancel the really stupidly loud sky booms too 👍

Graham - are you there? Shame about Ms Faith but T O’Dell is probably a better option for the evening IMHO 🤗.

Oh my god. Would have given anything to see Tom Odell!!

Refund!!!!!

Tom Odell is fab xx

I wouldn’t have bought tickets and arranged my trip to Glastonbury for Tom Odell, I want a refund, sorry Tom, just not a fan, and not the tickets I paid for.
