Rolling Stones Confirmed to Play Glastonbury Festival
The legendary band is slated to perform on Saturday night (June 29). Mick Jagger shared his enthusiasm in a tweet, saying, “Can't wait to play Glastonbury. I have my wellies and my yurt!" Keith Richards chimed in as well, adding, “We all had such a ball last year, and the energy between the band is so good, we can't wait to play Glastonbury, see you on a summer's day in England."
As reported by BBC News, Stones guitarist Ron Wood jokingly claimed to have cajoled his bandmates into participating in the event. “I've been using all my persuasive charm on the boys for a few weeks now,” he said.”Really pleased to be doing it, can't wait to be getting out on that stage." Joining the Stones as headlining acts for this year’s festival will be Mumford and Sons and The Arctic Monkeys.
