The Rolling Stones - Rolling Stones Agree To Broadcast First Hour Of Glastonbury Set

The Rolling Stones have agreed to allow Bbc bosses to air an hour of their headlining set at Britain's legendary Glastonbury festival after previously objecting to the live Tv broadcast.

The Bbc traditionally offers viewers the chance to enjoy the annual three-day spectacle from the comfort of their living rooms by broadcasting the top sets on the small screen, but the Brown Sugar hitmakers reportedly insisted only four songs from their eagerly-awaited Glastonbury debut could be shown live.

Frontman Sir Mick Jagger is alleged to have told organisers it would be unfair on ticket holders if the entire 90-minute set was shown for free on Tv, but it appears the two parties have since reached a compromise.

Confirming that a deal had been reached, Glastonbury founder Michael Eavis says, "I think they're all friends now. It's taken a long time to get them to come and play. Everyone wants to see the Stones, basically. I think Mick Jagger wanted to play to the people here (in Glastonbury), rather than a Tv show. They're going to be playing for about an hour for the Tv."

The Stones will be joined on the Glastonbury bill by fellow headliners Mumford & Sons and Arctic Monkeys.
