Gary Barlow headlines Stonehenge
FORMER Take That singer Gary Barlow has headlined Stonehenge’s annual celebrations in honour of the ancient Earth Goddess.
The singer-songwriter performed hits including Why Can’t I Wake Up With You, Stronger and a cover version of Elton John’s Can You Feel The Love Tonight on a special piano engraved with mystic symbols.
Thousands of assembled hippies, druids and ravers joined in the chorus of Take That’s Everything Changes But You, banging ethnic instruments in time with the catchy beat as the first rays of dawn sunshine broke through clouds to illuminate Barlow’s handsome face.
Barlow said: “I’ve actually met the Gaia, the Earth Goddess while tripping on magic mushrooms with Mark Owen, and she’s really nice.
“For such an ancient powerful being she’s really approachable with a great sense of humour.”
Historian Carolyn Ryan said: “Many thought that the public appetite for celebrating a mythical female might have been exhausted after the jubilee.”
“Turns out they underestimated the great British enthusiasm for getting smashed.”
Reveller Tom Logan said: “We praise the ancient primal goddess, and give thanks for the vast cornucopia of illicit substances that she hath birthed from her mighty earth-womb.”
