Pavement Thrill Coachella With U.s. Return

Cult rockers PAVEMENT brought the 2010 Coachella Music & Arts Festival in Indio, California to a close by playing their first major show in the U.S. in more than 10 years.
The band took to the stage on Sunday (18Apr10), treating fans to a 70-minute set, playing a variety of fan favourites, including Shady Lane, Cut Your Hair and Range Life.
Pavement's U.S. return - the group's first since their split in 1999 - was also marked by Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke, who dedicated his song Atoms For Peace to the veteran rockers as he performed with his side band of the same name on a different stage.
The Gorillaz thrilled fans by reuniting former The Clash members Paul Simonon and Mick Jones onstage - the musicians behind Damon Albarn's animated band appeared in sailors' costumes.
The former Blur frontman's set was boosted by a handful of special guests - Bobby Womack joined the band for Stylo, while rap legends De La Soul came on stage for the encore performance of Feel Good Inc.
The final day of the annual festival also saw a rare appearance by soul icon Sly Stone - but the singer proved to be unpopular with fans by arriving five hours late and playing a problematic set that was plagued by sound issues.
The three day musical bonanza kicked off on Friday (16Apr10) and also featured headliners Muse and Jay-Z.
