I want to know who the three Glastonbury headliners are going to be. They're going to reveal them in this week's issue.
Well I reckon it will be Kylie, Arctic Monkeys and Bob Dylan.
Whether that's a good thing, I don't know yet.
maybe. co headline?
i could see it being somenoe like embrace ie a band that someone like eavis would think are incredibly with it and popular.
bobby dylan is still ace live if you're a fan and know the songs, but festival wise it wouldnt work AT ALL. his voice is so different and he plays every song differently, and doesnt play the obvious hits.
is actually pretty cool, despite his Coldplay penchant.
was TERRIBLE at Roskilde. I watched Rufus Wainwright instead and it was QUITE GOOD.
and was...erm...okay. I dunno, it wasn't like Bowie 2000 when he played all the hits and stuff.
Anyway, could never be Arctic Monkeys. I can imagine it being Embrace maybe, but even they've not really sold the albums.
Scissor Sisters, as thew Jake man (is it Jake??) wants to get married at glasto next year.
on this weeks nme? I mean like double hard.
unless I've been undone by an almighty lampoon. I reckon Holy Moly were chucked a few quid as well to talk them up... My cynical mind going overtime.
scissor sisters ?
Apart from The Boss, obviously.
on if he has the E Street Band in tow.
were sounding rather shitty last time i heard them live.
on a related note: the worst thing about the born in the usa era is how in every FUCKING VIDEO clarence clemens just stood there hitting a fucking COWBELL or MARACCAS instead of his sax. he must have felt like such a prize cunt.
he's good live. i think all of his stuff with neil is better than his stuff with brucey. his first few solo albums are also really good too.
I'd seriously consider going if I got to see Kylie and Madonna live? Shit, that's about half the price for either of their concerts in one Glasto ticket.
where is the real Theo?
the cheapest tickets to the madonna show in cardiff were 100 pounds. last year's glastonbury cost 125 pounds.
madonna + kylie = glastonbury and a half.
will definitely be one and that's a fact. Kylie's pretty much confirmed so i guess that leaves a big room for one more...it won't be the monkeys...maybe the monkees?
...i don't why i wrote that. Sorry.
sisters were shit at sonar this year. And werent they unbelievably shit when they headlined v last year? id go for bruce springsteen.
Scissor Sisters were ace at Benicassim.
was ment to be the headliner last time but she got cancer and canlced all her gigs
Maybe the nme have done it to try and get more sales.As pete in big bro would say "WANKERS"
I quit buying NME. If they're talking out of their asses which they normally do, that's the last straw to be honest. First they big up Fall Out Boy and Lily Allen, now they do this.
i dunno ive just never been impressed by them live and the new stuff i heard wasnt that good. to headline glastonbury youve got to be so good. maybe scissor scisters to headline the other stage would be good.
i don't mind the killers. I quite like them and I have no shame in that.
But the rest? Madonna? Scissor Sisters? Fuck off
