Greeting the crowd with “Hello Glasto… fancy seeing me here,” Morrissey took to the main stage at Glastonbury tonight to perform a 16-song set that mixed songs old and brand-new, with a generous heaping of classics from The Smiths thrown in — so much so that former bandmate Mike Joyce, despite praising the “Gr8 performance from M,” complained of Moz’s “cover versions” via Twitter.

The show, which featured a dig at the headliners (“I’ll try to sing as fast as I can as I know you’re here to see U2″), included recently debuted new songs “Action is My Middle Name” and “People Are the Same Everywhere,” a cover of Lou Reed’s “Satellite of Love” and five Smiths songs (“I Want the One I Can’t Have,” “Shoplifters of the World Unite,” “There Is a Light That Never Goes Out,” “Meat is Murder” and “This Charming Man”).

We originally indicated the set ended with “William It Was Really Nothing,” but The Guardian has since corrected its review, which was one of our sources.

Thanks to ErmmMusic, you can watch the BBC television broadcast of the entire show in the playlist embedded above, or check out the individual tracks over at Slicing Up Video.

UPDATE 6/27/11: The BBC Glastonbury videos have been removed from YouTube.
