Lana Del Rey showed up 30 minutes late to her Glastonbury set while getting her 'hair and make-up done on stage'.
The singer eventually had her mic cut off as a result.
Well, crowds at the alternative main stage grew restless as the US singer kept them waiting, with chants of 'we want Lana' ringing through the field on Saturday evening (24 June).
The delay came after reports that the 'Born To Die' singer was not impressed that she was not initially billed as the main act on the stage for Saturday on the first line-up poster.
The 38-year-old eventually made her way onto the stage in a black collared outfit, which was removed to reveal a white dress decorated with a religious pattern, paired with a diamond-style headpiece.
Lana then shocked the crowd with a theatrical performance, which saw her hair and make-up get tended to on stage.
At first, it genuinely looked like she was getting her make-up done, however, when dancers started to dance in black mesh dresses around her, it was quite obvious that it was an act.
Commenting on the act, one fan tweeted: "only lana del rey can get her hair and makeup done on stage and get away with it."
Another added: "Lana del Rey must have been really late. 30 minute delay to the start and then getting her hair done on stage whilst singing!"
The drama didn't end there, as Lana apologised to fans over the possibility that her set might be cut off, after starting half an hour late.
“If they cut power, I’m super f****** sorry. Let’s keep this set as it’s supposed to go,” she said.
Without saying a word, the band started with 'Bad Obsession', as Rose and Slash strolled around the stage to rev up the crowd.
“How you doing?” Rose asked the audience after the song finished.
“We’d like to thank you for inviting us – thank you.”
Towards the end of the performance, the band brought out Foo Fighters frontman, Dave Grohl, to help them close their headline set.
Introducing Grohl, Axl Rose declared: “There’s no such thing as too many f****** guitars.”
The band launched into an explosive performance of Paradise City, after which they bowed and Slash performed a handstand as he exited the stage.
Grohl appeared earlier on Saturday as a guest for The Pretenders, having also previously performed a secret slot with Foo Fighters on Friday.
