Julie Starling, who was at the gig with her 12-year-old son, said: 'His trousers split quite early on when he got down on his knees which was hardly noticeable but then as the concert went on they split a little more.

'Everyone found it very amusing - especially when it was his mum who told him that they had split right near the end of the concert.
