At the front of the greatest stage in music.

Bring it the fuck on.

Everyone hates to see the over use of the phrase 'We love to see". But we do genuinely love to see Macca on the Pyramid. And I cannot stress enough that I love to see it

Nothing, is my opinion.

I'm saying that if Macca isn't a booking who's only just been signed and sealed, then it's suggestive that Emily, and Macca, and Nick Dewey have all told some porkies around Macca &/or who has/is being booked.

I'm saying I think Macca is the one who was recently still being negotiated, and that was because he was approached more recently (probably since that interview with Zoe Ball, which might have encouraged Glasto to go for him).

how?

Nick, I get, because he told you that Macca wasn't playing.

I don't see what Emily has said that points to this.

I've seen loads of replies on Facebook about his voice.

You're not going to see a man or woman in their mid to late 70's for their voice. You're going to see them because they're f**king legends and someone you can tell your kids you saw. My kids are coming with me, so they can say themselves they saw him!

There are just some names that transcend other things. Paul on the Pyramid, especially if you're a Beatles fan, is a 'I was there' moment.

 

To be fair, I said the same about U2. Crap weather, average performance, band didn't even really enjoy it, but hey, I saw U2 headline the best festival in the world. I'm not telling my kids in a few years that "to be honest poppet, Adam Clayton couldn't really be arsed that night".

It takes tying a few bits together, and then making (some fairly logical) assumptions against them from what's happened ... all a bit convoluted (just tried writing it to make sense and failed).

But anyway, I don't think she's telling porkies, I think things have changed with Macca being the act that was still in negotiation. And if he was still in negotiation - after others have signed up - that suggests he was a later approach than the others.

I'm happy with Macca.... lots on twitter dont seem to be... 

Do we think this would cause some people to give up tickets?? Is there anyone on here would put their ticket back in the pot because of this? 

Can you tell I still need a ticket? haha

Man, if you don't think Paul McCartney is the perfect booking for the 50th anniversary then I don't know what to tell you. Perfect example of people that will never be happy.

What's your thoughts on Emily saying that someone who could be headlining would be playing either other stage or sub headline? (to paraphrase a lot) ha! Foals??

Any act could be announced and people on twitter would grumble. Can’t please everybody, but anybody moaning about a fucking Beatle topping the festival needs to give their heads a wobble. Undoubtedly one of the biggest acts they could’ve secured.

Great news. Will be like the Stones in 2013 with how busy it will be. Get there 3 hours earlier if you want a good spot.

I think if someone gave up a ticket to Glastonbury because Paul McCartney was playing then that person should be round up and shot.

I think that was just Michael being Michael.

Love BBC Somerset claiming the scoop though.

I wouldn’t give up my ticket if I had one, but it’s certainly eased the pain of not getting one. I’ll still try my luck in April though!

People are idiots.

Go and have a look at the comments on the Guardian's article on it. Losers.

some pretty brutal opinions of him and the festival in general over on BBC news comments section! I do try and avoid the comments sections of any news site as it tends to make the blood boil - so much hate from people who have clearly never been to glasto!

Meh we rocked up after Primal Scream and got into a pretty good spot for the Stones by the time they came on. We thought we would have to be there much earlier but no, it was alright. Really enjoyed the Stones too.
