Coldplay to headline Glastonbury for the fourth time
Among the many rumours for next year’s Glastonbury headliners, Coldplay are among the very top. Even the bookies say so, with William Hill giving the band odds of 4/1 to play the infamous Pyramid Stage again this year.
GLASTONBURY HEADLINER VETERANS
The Glastonbury veterans have headlined the festival for three years already, playing the infamous Pyramid Stage in 2011, 2005 and 2002, making their could-be fourth performance Glastonbury history.
Time Out’s quick history to Glastonbury Headliners infogram shows that fellow festival veterans The Cure, Van Morrison and Elvis Costello have also topped the bill three times, which is the most any band has headlined the iconic festival.
An source told the Independent:
Coldplay … will have no problem filling a two-hour set that punters will love.
With pressure to fill a much coveted slot at the festival, are Coldplay up to the challenge? You can judge for yourself by watching Coldplay’s 2011 performance in the video below:
POTENTIALLY THE BAND’S FINAL PERFORMANCE
This could be the band’s final performance, and by then the band will have released their much anticipated and potentially final album Head Full Of Dreams. This will be the group’s seventh studio album.
Chris Martin told Zane Lowe of BBC Radio One:
It’s our seventh [album], and the way we look at it, it’s like the last Harry Potter book or something like that. Not to say that there might not be another thing one day, but this is the completion of something.
The first batch of Glastonbury tickets sold out by no surprise in 15 minutes this year, make sure you don’t miss out on the second batch release which will take place in the spring next year.
