It’s official! Rolling Stones will headline this summer’s Glastonbury Festival together with two other headline acts. The band is scheduled to perform on the Saturday night with Mumford and Sons and the Arctic Monkeys.
Rolling Stones fans should thank guitarist Ronnie for making this possible. He said: "I've been using all my persuasive charm on the boys for a few weeks now, really pleased to be doing it, can't wait to be getting out on that stage."
Other members of the band were extremely excited. Guitarist Keith Richards said: "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."
Meanwhile, Mick Jagger added: "Can't wait to play Glastonbury. I have my wellies and my yurt!"
Event organiser Emily Eavis described the line-up "as big a coup as we ever thought would be possible.”
She said: "It is something we never thought we'd be able to pull off - a dream booking.
"We've tried or talked about getting the Rolling Stones to play Glastonbury throughout my entire life - I can't remember a year it hasn't been wished upon.
"It is such an honour to have them. I get the sense they are excited too, there's been a real buzz about it from both camps."
