Benicassim 2015 - Jamie T

Jamie T has said that he doesn't enjoy playing Sheila on stage. The singer songwriter made the comments when he was performing at Spain's Benicassim Festival.


Speaking to the crowd, Jamie said" "I don't like playing this [Sheila] song on stage any more.

"But the way you guys react to it, you guys make me love it."

Jamie T was playing before Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds and the Friday night headliners The Prodigy.

He went on to say "I went away for a long time, but this has been the best year of my life. We won't be away again."

The South London musician played a hit-laden set, including If You Got The Money, Zombie and Sticks And Stones.

Florence And The Machine opened the event last night (Thursday 16 July) with Blur and Portishead headlining the Saturday and Sunday nights.

Jamie T's latest album, Carry On The Grudge, is out now.
