Ronnie Wood Wants The Rolling Stones To Hit Up Glastonbury For Post Anniversary Show
Ronnie Wood has said that he would love to perform at Glastonbury for the first time to mark The Rolling Stones 50th anniversary.
The rockers have celebrated their semicentennial as a band with a string of shows last year in London, Brooklyn and New Jersey but guitarist Ronnie Wood seems keen to get back on to the stage again. 'Wouldn't it be nice', he told The Independent. 'We've got a meeting next month and that's going to be my first question to them. It's something I've always been interested in. I'm going to twist their arms.' He went on to say that he has 'high hopes' for the summer of 2013, though a source close to Rolling Stone magazine recently denied that they would be involved in this year's Coachella festival. However, that doesn't mean they're short of offers according to singer Mick Jagger. 'I'm going to see what's on the table and discuss it with everyone. We'll announce it when we've figured it out', he said.
Glastonbury would be a pretty huge bet for the band - it is, after all, arguably the most prestigious music festival in the UK and this year's tickets have already sold out despite the line-up not yet being announced.
