    Biggest artists not to have headlined?

    weren't they the 4th headliner that Emily was referring to back in '99 to close out the century w/ a bang? co-headling with that other massive 20th century act - Skunk Anansie?

    Jack White

    it was his take on a 'Swamp Song' entrance. I still rate that '14 set as one of the best of the weekend. perfectly rough-around-the-edges. loved it. enjoyed White Stripes 1st time 2002 as well, it was The Dead Weather up at The Park in '09 that I thought was shambles.... passed on that the next year on Pyramid and I would rarely pass on any Jack White-affiliated set.

    2019 Headliners

    that would have been the France-Brazil penalty shootout of 86, not 95. I wasn't at Worthy Farm that saturday night, but was in the Milton Keynes Bowl watching a Glasgow band that subbed them on the Pyramid 9 years later.

    Your top Glastonbury sets ever

    my plan was to catch the first 4 tunes and then dash over to New Order. It was only until the opening notes of Rolling in the Deep that I was leaving the field, she was that good...

    Your top Glastonbury sets ever

    but 03 and 97 were the standard bearers for them, so no surprise a lot on this forum participated in a knockout tourney of some sort that someone started a thread on - who was it? - a decade back maybe, and their '03 set beat out Macca's 04 much to the chagrin of the poll-creator...

    with all due respect to you guypj i think a lot on here had those two in '13 as 'worst' and 'best' of 2013 (Stones in it's own league of course) (p.s. - i'm seeing Pearl Jam in Seattle this summer!)

    give him a break, after all, The Edge said in 2010 he enjoyed catching Gorillaz and Broken Bells on the Friday night before his Sat cameo

    Nick Cave

    very surprised to see this jump, although it's only the NY, LA, and Toronto markets that's he's given it a go, Wash DC is a smaller one. will be interested to see how full those will be.

    Elton John

    mixed in with the occasional Rush Limbaugh wedding gig...

    Talking Heads

    here are Chris Frantz and Richard Lloyd (Television) tonight in NYC, talking about Lloyd's new book. oh, and Chris has a book coming out himself as well very soon he said, so keep an eye out for that

    Talking Heads

    I'm catching the Newport Folk Festival this summer and if EFests did a 'rumours' list for that festival (the only US festival with the history or longevity similar to Glastonbury, albeit on a much smaller scale) David Byrne would be a 'SR' with another festival date on the Friday nearby and then up the US coast on the day after, so I'm pretty sure I'll be seeing him there. But, keeping the Heads theme strong this year, I just came back tonight from a book reading/discussion at a famed NY bookstore where drummer Chris Frantz was interviewing fellow CBGB veteran frontman Richard Lloyd of Television, reading questions from a sheet of paper he had. Tina Weymouth was in the front row asking a few questions of her own as well (Chris says to her "oh, you brought a list too?") - Intro lines by Chris "We used to do double bills together at CBGB's" and "By the way...neither of us are high at the moment!" - managed to get my Stop Making Sense autographed. He said his greatest post-Talking Heads accomplishment was he and Tina taking turns posting for years as Mike99 without the Neil ever knowing it was them.

    Blur 2009 - BBC2

    yep, Midnight Rambler was one of THE moments (of a few) of my greatest gig

    Oasis

    I was up for it as well, at the end of a 10-yr stint of really enjoying their stuff, the interviews, thinking they'd get better again. I thought the white coat was a bathrobe and wasn't a good omen as it looked like he was ready for bed, just mailing it in, which he did. started well for a few numbers, but the gaps were painful, no banter. I thought it picked up a bit for encore, but it took me a year or two to admit it was truly dreadful rather than just average. still have a worn out armpit stained blue Oasis Glastonbury 2004 t-shirt mind you... Per Russy's take on 95, I wasn't there but listened to it on headphones listening on radio and for years that was one of my fave recorded live gigs. Just seemed like it would have been great on the night. Walrus was incredible on that night, listen to the full thing and the jam at the end... yes, very much a why are we here thing....so lacking of energy and it was only their second gig of the year i think (?) a warmup a few days before and then this... Having said all this though, in terms of choices, I'd still go see them again reunited over the likes of Ed Sheeran, Stormzy, Foo Fighters, Lionel Richie and 95% of the stuff that's on yesterday's Coachella lineup announcement.
