    reckon RHCP are as good value still as they have been. No way they are playing other though.

    Maybe something that is overlooked in the Macca v Elton debate is that Macca has already played before. Regardless of how much overlap there is between attendees in 2004 and 2020, I think for many people there's a sense that these heritage acts are best as a one time thing. When people were talking about Rolling Stones again this year - there was a sense of "What's the point? they already smashed it". Also, I saw in a Guardian article that Macca's stage show is still pretty much the same as it was last time he played. I'm sure come June no-one will care at all about that though.

    Maybe I'm giving them too much credit, but I can't see his team putting something that obvious out just for a bit of bants. As odd as it was, it pretty much hit the nail on the head for getting people talking and then glasto waited a bit to get a second rush. Just imo ofc

    Is there any evidence that this is the case. Without wanting to be cynical - is Paul really dicking round on twitter creating cryptic pictures? Seems fairly plausible that it was agreed relatively recently and both parties fancied a bit of publicity, and for contractual reasons, glasto couldn't announce the other two headliners.
  6. Always sneered at people who would go see a band that they aren't massively into their music but because it 'ticks a box', but have to say, I'm tempted to go just so that I can say I saw one of The Beatles live.

    what are 7/8th length shorts?
  8. I ask as I've seen a few comments about how transformative the BBC money has been to glastonbury and whilst I've read other comments that BBC have no influence whatsover on who plays, if a significant chunk is put down to glastonbury then, they would certainly have some indirect influence. In that case a Pyramid headliner that couldn't broadcast majority of their set would be a kick in the teeth.
  9. When BBC negotiate with individual acts - is it usually involving a fee or just purely what they can and can't show?
  10. I find it p. hard to believe that given The Prodigy had to drop out of headlining Other late, and foals willing and wanting to headline the other, that it wouldn't have happened.

    I think it's probably wishful thinking (soz to fans of RHCP, but i don't have any intention to see them live in 2020) that has kept their name relatively low down the list, but they have to be in with a fair shout.

    I think MCR go down as one of those bands that was big for a small period, maybe like 2-3 years, but not long enough to have much lasting significance. But I think it's undeniable The Black Parade was really big at the time and crossed into mainstream as well as making many people that had turned their noses up at them start to take note.

    I'm not sure you can read anything into this - the quotes are from an interview in March with the following lines afterwards (in the NME article) Arctic Monkeys are currently on tour in Australia and New Zealand before wrapping up their 2019 shows in South America. So i'd interpret the 'couple of tours' being Oz/Nz and South America that have already been completed.
