  1. NME's top 10 headliners of the century...

    1. Stevie Wonder 2. Rolling Stones 3. Muse (04)
  2. Headliners 2016

    Everyone has different tastes but Muse will go down a storm if they play again. Its guaranteed. Never seen them play live and be anything other than class. don't like them....go see somebody else (if they play) Iv seen them loads already but it would take something very special indeed on other, west holts or elsewhere to stop me watching them again.
  3. Headliners 2016

    Their last two albums have been bang average at best but Muse have made some incredible songs. Hysteria, Knights of Cydonia, Plug in Baby, New Born, map of problematique, Stockholm syndrome, bliss I could name about 20 more easily. Don't get the hate. Incredible British band.
  4. Headliners 2016

    Muse have lost more talent in their sweat than you'll have in your whole life.  
  5. Headliners 2016

    Muse have a two for two glasto headline record tbf. Incredible both occasions. Same cant be said for many other acts. I get the point about it being samey but Muse rarely fail to deliver.
  6. Headliners 2016

    just don't think it would be as good as some do. She has an utterly incredible voice but do you wanna see somebody stand still for 2hrs on the biggest stage there is? Id rather see something a bit more dynamic. Id go to see her though just not at glasto.
  7. Headliners 2016

    Why is everyone so sure Adele is playing? She has flat out ruled it out i thought saying its too big for her for her stage fright. Coldplay I think will be playing though.
  8. Who popped your Glastonbury cherry?

    Like quite a few others it seems 2007 was my first glasto too. I seem to remember starting with The Cribs on other stage and loved every minute. I was right at front too.
  9. festis line ups good ones and bad

    I'm not even saying I want them to headline. Seen them countless times including at Glasto. I'm saying they are just a guaranteed crowd pleaser. Will they fill the field? Yes. Will they deliver the goods? They do every time. I'm.hoping for something else too but Muse are a festivals booking department's dream. That was my point.
  10. festis line ups good ones and bad

    Cant understand the hate for Muse. Sure they have headlined twice before (6 years ago was last one) so you can bring up the age old argument of seeing something new.....but look at state of modern music. Its in a desperate state. There aren't many headline worthy acts around. Plus if you were there in 2010 to see them, or you have seen them countless other times like I have done will know they put on an incredible live show. Not seen many better live acts tbh. If Muse headline, they will get a huge crowd and absolutely smash it, no question.
  11. West Holts 2016 - would love to see list

    I saw Lenny Kraviz few years back and it was absolutely fantastic. Would love to see him headline West Holts. Probably not realistic but think he'd do a great job.
  12. Could Gorillaz Return?

    Wouldn't call it moronic. At the time they were announced as headliner replacement, I was delighted. Loved their stuff. It just didn't work on the day. Hindsight and all that. Also not really arsed I missed Flaming Lips either. Not a huge fan of them. Find all the stage invasions and distractions they set up a mask for some incredibly mediocre music. But that's just my opinion.  
  13. Could Gorillaz Return?

    wasn't at glasto the year Brucie headlined but have seen him live few times. He's always great but that's with a crowd who are there to see him and appreciate his music. He's made some incredible albums. Maybe Glasto was wrong crowd for him. You cant really compare him with gorrilaz either.
  14. Could Gorillaz Return?

    The single worst performance I have ever witnessed at Glasto. I lasted about 1hr and left with big numbers doing same. It was dull as dishwater and I was a fan beforehand and looking forward to seeing them. It just didn't work on any level for me.  
  15. Adele/Muse/Coldplay say DM

    It was always going to be safe bets in 2016 after Kanye gate and The Who playing again despite playing in 2007 and no real reason to play again. Add to the fact that Foos pulled out and fatm stepped up last min only makes it more unlikely there will be some big surprises in June. It will be 3 from Adele, Coldplay, Muse, Foos & Roses. DM may have something right for a change.
