Could Blur And Oasis Be Headlining Glastonbury? TOGETHER?!
A new album, a reformation, could this be the news we’ve all been waiting for?
Glastonbury speculation hit fever pitch yesterday (April 22) when the festival’s founding father, Michael Eavis, revealed that the final headliner set to top the Pyramid Stage on Sunday night would be announced on June 1.
The Worthy Farm boss, who made the big reveal whilst speaking at the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, also hinted that the final headliner will be made up of two artists who will “most likely” be British.
With Noel and Liam Gallagher reportedly putting their differences aside to reform the band and Blur releasing their first album in 12 years, there’s nothing to stop the impossible from becoming… possible.
If Glasto was to pull off one of their most monumental bookings to date, the results would go down in history. Unfortunately the odds are stacked way against them.
Blur have already pledged allegiance to exclusively play the Isle Of Wight Festival and Noel has ruled out an Oasis return, telling Rolling Stone magazine: “I don’t think Michael Eavis has got enough money.”
However, despite the 47-year-old's comments, many are still believe the artist he is set to join forces with is actually his brother Liam.
What about the possibility of Noel playing with Damon? They’ve done it before after burying the hatchet at the Royal Albert Hall for a Teenage Cancer Trust gig back in 2013...
The stage is set for the two founding members of two of the world’s biggest bands to unite - they certainly won’t be short of material with two music careers spanning decades, not to mention three solo albums between them.
Among the bookies’ favourites to headline are Coldplay, The Stone Roses, Paul McCartney and Pink Floyd, all of which are British acts. The announcement means that international performers Prince and Taylor Swift are out of the running.
Pharrell Williams, Florence + The Machine, Alt-J and Paloma Faith have all been confirmed to play the Somerset weekend, for now though, it looks like fans will have to sit tight and roll with it for another few months.
Glastonbury Festival takes place this June 24-28.
