Leon Bridges shows Fort Worth love at Glastonbury Festival
Leon Bridges is a proud Fort Worth Goodwill Ambassador wherever he performs around the world.
This included perhaps his biggest stage yet when the local star performed to over 100,000 on Saturday at Glastonbury Festival in the UK.
Bridges and his band’s hour-long set on the West Holts stage included the song “Beyond” from his 2018 album Good Thing. The performance was posted by BBC Music on YouTube. Paul McCartney was Saturday night’s headliner.
Its backdrop features a massive black panther with Fort Worth stamped in the middle.
Fort Worth residents long adopted the nickname Panther City after a Dallas resident joked in 1875 that the city was so dead someone saw a sleeping panther on a downtown street.
