The Feeling - The Feeling Condense British Music History For Palace Gig

Subscribe To:

British rockers The Feeling were asked to choose a setlist incorporating the best U.K. music from the last 60 years for their historic gig at Buckingham Palace.

The band is among the acts performing during this weekend (12-14Jul13) Coronation Festival at the royal residence in London to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth Ii's coronation.

Frontman Dan Gillespie Sells has now revealed their set will focus on the best of British music released during the Queen's reign, and he admits the musicians struggled to decide which iconic songs would make the cut.

The set list, which had to be approved by palace officials, includes songs by The Beatles, The Who, Pink Floyd, Queen, David Bowie and Blur, but iconic rockers The Rolling Stones were left out along with Oasis and controversial punk stars the Sex Pistols.

Gillespie Sells says, "We had to leave out The Rolling Stones and we chose Blur over Oasis because they were the band who most influenced us. We could have chosen from a million songs but we went for artists we liked and tried to cover all the bases inside 12 minutes... We restricted it to seven songs.

"We couldn't have the Sex Pistols' God Save The Queen. I'd have liked to do an Elvis Costello song but it would have been too political. We had to send the set-list to the Palace for approval but that's fair enough - the event is in her (the Queen's) house."

The Feeling performed a private preview for the Queen on Thursday night (11Jul13), while they are expected to take to the stage again over the weekend.
