The tickets have already sold out for the 40th Anniversary of Glastonbury Festival, and no sooner have the organisers finished counting the millions they’ve made they thrust this on us: U2 will headline next years festival. Now I had every intention of going, but unfortunately missed out on tickets. Thank god. Despite their rather overblown success U2. to me, are one of the most over rater bands of all time, and certainly not a good choice for a celebration of all that is Glastonbury!
Taking place in June next year, it will be the Irish acts first appearance at the festival over their 36 year careers. Of course they are delighted, no doubt part of Bono’s ever increasing plan to take over the world. Acts rumoured to be accompanying them include Muse, Coldplay and Sir David Bowie, so it can only get better really.
But then again, The Rolling Stones have been rumoured as well, so it could get worse as well…
