|The Rolling Stones to play in Glastonbury 2013|
The world’s greatest rock’n’roll band at the world’s greatest rock festival? It is an irresistible alliance of forces. Glastonbury founder Michael Eavis has long coveted having the Rolling Stones as headliners, making many efforts to tempt them over the years, only to be constantly rebuffed. With the band members all hitting 70, he must have thought time was running out.
But somehow, as the festival has become almost as venerable as the band, their interests have coincided. Glastonbury will deliver an audience of 135,000 dedicated music lovers intent on having the time of their lives. And the Rolling Stones will deliver a headline set that no one who sees it will ever forget.
