The Eagles were bigger than The Cure and have done there fair share of huge gigs. Have a bigger back catalogue and their best of album has sold more than any other album ever. 

Stormzy is a punt, he might turn out to be a good one byt at this moment hes not all that big. Hes not even close to The Eagles.

I wasn't around during their respective eras so I'm happy to concede that The Eagles were/are probably bigger but I'd argue The Cure are the 'bigger' band in the UK and more relevant here than The Eagles which is why they've headlined 3 times already. 

Yeah agreed he is a punt and of course he's nowhere as big as The Eagles but as far as 2019 goes he's far more relevant than them.

In the UK? 

I haven't seen anyone join your rallying cry no matter how much you bang the drum. 

I know a few of them from sitting in my old man's Cortina in the 80s, doesn't mean I think they would be chosen, for a myriad of reasons.

At the very least, they've had Take It Easy stuck in my head for the last hour.

Maybes on here but the viewpoint on here isnt really close to the general viewpoint. If you go on social media Stormzy git grilled for basically being a 'shit' headliner. No one really cares about The Cure in 2019, they have their fanbase that theyve always had but they are the same as The Eagles for relevance. Peopke wont be disappointed if they play but they also wouldnt be dissappointed if they didnt. 

I dont think the Eagles will get the call up nor do I think peipke would be disappointed if they dont but if they did they would be met favourably and they would deliver a great set. 

They wouldnt be held aby lower than Stormzy or The Cure but imo they would deliver a better set. I dont nind Stormzy playing or The Cure btw, I might go see The Cure but they arent more relevant than The Eagles. 

I think it’s just best I say I disagree but my main point was that it’s very rare Glastonbury book a headliner where there hasn’t been some sort of demand for them to do it.

i do think in some subtle way the eavi listen to feedback of Glastonbury attendees. They are pretty good at knowing what acts that people at the fest would enjoy and acts that the attendees want at the fest.

aside from money there’s probably a good reason why Bon Jovi, Aerosmith, Eagles (and many more I can’t think off the top of my head) haven’t done it.

no one is arsed if they do or they don’t.

Neither has The Cure. 

Or Stormzy for that matter. 

The Cure are headlining every other major festival in Europe and Sold Out BST in record time. It is fair to say their live stock is in fairly high demand.

Yeah but no one gives a damn about The Eagles who wasn't around when they were in their heyday, do they? The Cure are listened to by people of all ages, from like 15 upward I'd say. They're massive cultural icons and one of the first bands from the past people will check out when getting into alternative music (in the same way as the likes of The Smiths, Joy Division, etc.). I've never met anyone who actively likes The Eagles, never mind anyone under 40.

If The Eagles headlined Glastonbury I doubt you'd find many young people there. I'd probably get laughed at for having a ticket to a festival headlined by The Eagles tbh.

Eagles are The Killers for middle aged people (actually that's who The Killers are for isn't it).

The Cure are The Strokes for middle aged people (and every other age).

Only one of those pairs is headlining Glastonbury and it's the pair that you don't get bullied for going to see.

If I told my dad The Eagles were headlining he'd probably say "That'll be decent", which sums them up.

I've actually never heard my dad mention The Eagles in my life but he probably thinks they're good because of Hotel California.

If they played Hotel California during the middle of their set it would be mass exodus after

and if I was there I’d probably be one of the ones leaving

Nah, people would check them out and then would see how great they were. It would be packed but always is anyway. They are still great live and Id imagine people will have heard and know well a lot of their best songs (even if they didnt know it was them). They would deliver, it would be great. 

The Cures already done it three times and you can basically go and see them whenever you want. Im not saying they are a bad headliner, Ill prob go watch them but The Eagles would be a better booking, rarer appearance, more legendary band. 

If your mates laugh at you for seeing The Eagkes theb Im sorry to say but your friends probably have poor taste in music.

That didn't happen at Leeds 2012 where the average age is generally lower than Glasto, it's almost certainly not gonna happen at Glastonbury.

Barmy.

Not the bit about first impressions being good, it is a good album.

Eh, for me the only non-single on Room On Fire that stands out is Automatic Stop.

The Eagles albums still do really well today and its not like they cant do decent size tours, they are playing Wembley twice the week before Glastonbury and do well touring the world. Theyd go down every bit as well as The Cure.

That said they arent gonna do it so its a pointless debate.

The Cure are cool tho. Might have been uncool at their peak (I have no idea) but The Cure defo have an above-average fanbase in terms of coolness amongst younger people.

Killers? Muse? Mumford? These bands have uncool fans who deserve to be bullied, but not The Cure.

I was joking on that part, my friends aren't that weird, but Eagles are trash.

Yeah, they're massive, but their fans are all fat, middle aged, balding white blokes. Not doing Glasto.
