Latitude review: Boomtown Rats
A sun-drenched Henham Park was temporarily turned into Ratitude as The Boomtown Rats took centre stage.
The appearance of Sir Bob Geldof's Irish punk act caused a flurry of festival-goers to race to the front of the Obelisk Arena yesterday afternoon.
Sir Bob, dressed in shiny pretend Snake-print suit and obligatory gold-rimmed shades, commanded the stage - and the crowd - with all the presence and confidence one would expect of a man responsible for putting together the world's biggest ever charity gig, Live Aid.
Whether on lead vocals, mouth organ or just holding court on stage Geldof shone like the shiny suited star he was.
Close As You'll Ever Be, Lookin' After No.1, Mary of the 4th Form, Someone's Looking At You and Rat Trap were among the tracks played during the lively set but of course it was I Don't Like Mondays that really got the crowd going.
