Sir Mick Jagger - Mick Jagger To Call Bono For Glastonbury Advice

Sir Mick Jagger is planning to call U2 frontman Bono to ask his advice ahead of The Rolling Stones' headline performance at Britain's Glastonbury festival in June (13).

The Irish rockers famously axed a slot at the legendary music event in 2010 after singer Bono sustained a serious back injury, but they returned to headline the following summer (11).

The Rolling Stones are following in the band's footsteps by playing their first ever slot at the festival this summer (13), and Jagger wants to talk to Bono about his experience there.

He tells the Bbc, "'Don't do it!' might be his advice, but it's a bit late for that. It is quite a difficult gig. U2 had terrible weather and that didn't help. You have to learn from their experiences."

The Rolling Stones will complete a North American tour before taking to the stage at Glastonbury, but Jagger insists the veteran rockers will have some time off after wrapping the U.S. shows.

He adds, "You gotta pace yourself. We have enough time before we come back to England, so we'll be well recovered."
