This month, Charlotte Church is giving the very last of her Late Night Pop Dungeon shows. If you haven’t seen this nine-piece festival staple, you’ve been missing out. Picture the scene: it’s 2am, you crawl through Glastonbury’s Rabbit Hole or make a beeline for one of Green Man’s more remote tents, and there she is, the voice of an angel, belting out hits by the likes of Black Sabbath, the Cardigans, 10cc, Destiny’s Child and Rage Against the Machine, swigging champagne between verses. It is, as you might imagine, a complete riot.
“After six ecstatic years of unparalleled debauchery, the Late Night Pop Dungeon is hanging up its feathers, sequins, PVC and velour,” Church said in a statement. “All good things must come to an end, and this ending will be the most euphorically lickable ending conceivable. Think Carrie meets Sunset Boulevard, soundtracked by the second side of Abbey Road. Think a pool party with Prince and Kate Bush at the grill, Beyoncé and Kurt Cobain on the bar… except it’s also Christmas.”
