Thanks for all the lovely birthday messages I’ve received today! And also thanks to all our wonderful Dreamworld audiences – we appreciate you every night on tour. I feel like a very lucky 68-year-old! Love, Neil x (Photo by Pete Gleadall)

Russian lawyer arrested

Russian lawyer arrested

A Russian lawyer, Dimitri Talantov, who has been defending a journalist charged with treason, has been arrested and taken away in handcuffs after posting on social media a statement about the recent Russian missile attack on a Ukrainian shopping mall: “Today's horror in Kremenchuk – is this also a part of your denazification? Or is this fascism?” We salute his courage.

What a night at Glastonbury! The front screen didn’t go up at the beginning so Chris went and played keyboards upstage. Fabulous, huge crowd! Thank you to Olly Alexander for joining us, also to our brilliant band, dancers and creative crew! And to Glastonbury and the BBC! xx Photo:Twitter/@Shawndrarara


In Oslo recently we saw the preparations for a happy Pride celebration. We are horrified by the deadly attack on innocent people and send our love, condolences and admiration for everyone who defied violence and marched in Pride anyway. Love Neil & Chris
