Gary Barlow’s Eden Project concert in Cornwall did not go down well with everybody.
Gary put on a stellar show to a sold-out crowd at the environmentally-friendly venue in Cornwall.
But the former X Factor judge has been slammed for using enormous amounts of plastic confetti at the eco-hub which prides itself on teaching people how to avoid waste.
An abundance of plastic green confetti fell from the ceiling as Gary belted out his hits, and although it looked visually-spectacular, it did not receive the desired praise.
“We call for an apology”
Cornwall Against Plastic
Cornwall Against Plastic voiced their anger to Cornwall Live about the confetti catastrophe.
A spokesman fumed: “Epic Gary Barlow blunder when ‘The Flood’ of plastic confetti rained upon the Eden Project at his recent sell out Eden Sessions gig in Cornwall.
“As a local and recurring visitor to the Eden Project, I was appalled to see plastic confetti littering the gardens after Gary Barlow’s gig.
“We call for an apology in the form of action from the singer, songwriter and producer. As a global voice, Gary Barlow has a responsibility.”
They added: “Through his art and high profile, he could make such a difference in encouraging his audiences to the support the ban of single-use plastics. What on earth was he doing using plastic confetti canons at his gig?”
Sir David Attenborough highlighted the devastating effects that single-use plastic can have on the world’s oceans in his hit Blue Planet series.
Not every concertgoer was quite so angry however, with one fan particularly ecstatic when she got to go onstage with Gary.
The delighted mega-fan was plucked to go on stage from the 6,500-strong crowd thanks to her husband’s cheeky banner.
It read: “If you pick her I can go to the World Cup.”
Daily Star Online has contacted Gary Barlow’s spokesman for comment.
