Could The Rolling Stones Be Playing Glastonbury Next Year?
Following on from yesterday's announcement by The Rolling Stones over fundraising plans for their funerals (they're playing some extortionately priced gigs if you've had your head in the sand), the molten misshaped lump of rock that stands for Keith Richards these days has said that the band aren't ruling out the possibility of playing Glastonbury Festival next year.
Richards was talking to BBC Radio 6music and discussed the bands plans beyond the four recently announced dates in London and New Jersey. "Nobody has given us a heads up but this band isn't going to wind up with four shows. Next year looks like it is on." He then added "On a good day if the weather's fine that's an interesting proposition. The band wants to get these four gigs under their belt and then think about next year after that. Anything is possible with this band."
If the band were to play Glastonbury, it'd be another two fingers up to fans who are going to be paying up to $561 (and that's not including the VIP packages) to see the group at their two London O2 Arena shows on November 25th and 29th. A festival ticket for the whole of Glastonbury is cheaper than that.
