According to a press release on David Bowie's official website, "The package includes the full 21 song greatest hits set and for the first time, a DVD of the entire show- only 37 minutes of which has ever been broadcast on TV.

The collection - which will be released on 30 November comes as a x 2 CD/ DVD set, 3 x LP, and as 2CD standard and high resolution digital.

All formats feature Bowie's diary, which was originally written for Time Out, and documents his preparation for the show.

Glastonbury co-organiser Emily Eavis commented “I often get asked what the best set I've seen here at Glastonbury is, and Bowie's 2000 performance is always one which I think of first. It was spellbinding; he had an absolutely enormous crowd transfixed. I think Bowie had a very deep relationship with Worthy Farm and he told some wonderful stories about his first time at the Festival in 1971, when he stayed at the farmhouse and performed at 6am as the sun was rising. And he just played the perfect headline set. It really was a very special and emotional show”.

Her father and the founder of the festival, who first met David at Glastonbury in 1971, said: “He’s one of the three greatest of all-time: Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley and David Bowie.”
