Pharrell Williams allowed a selection of female fans to get a little more than they bargained for during N¤E¤R¤D’s headlining performance on Brighton Beach yesterday (August 10th). The group, who headlined the Vodafone TBA concert alongside McFly and The Streets, wowed crowds with a storming forty minute set – which culminated in a well organised stage invasion. After what was a slow start, which wasn’t helped by the windy conditions on the seafront, N¤E¤R¤D soon gained momentum with recent single ‘Everyone Nose’.
The track, which features on their latest album ‘Seeing Sounds’, was followed by tracks including ‘Lap Dance’ and ‘She Wants To Move’. Although Williams was battling an obvious throat problem, which he tried to aid with a warm drink and thick cardigan, the singer still gave a memorable performance and gave about twenty female fans – who were all hand selected – a day to remember when he ordered his bodyguard to pull them on stage at the end of the show. As they danced around to the band’s music, Williams pulled up his t-shirt so a lucky few could show their appreciation for his well-toned body.
