The Glastonbury 2015 merry-go-round continues, who will headline this year? The latest reports are that Foo Fighters will top the bill.
Rumours have been floating around about a number of acts, Florence And The Machine, Noel Gallagher with either the High Flying Birds or Oasis, AC/DC, Muse and Coldplay.
Last year, Foo Fighters’ frontman Dave Grohl subtlety suggested that the festival organisers should pick up the phone and “give them a call”.
Glastonbury organiser Emily Eavis says that the band are “overdue” an appearance, however she acted coy telling NME: “We’d love to have the Foo Fighters back at Glastonbury and they haven’t played since 1998 so its well overdue! We’ll have to see…”
NME reports that Paddy Power have released their latest headliner odds with Foo Fighters at 5/4, AC/DC at 6/1, Florence and the Machine at 8/1 and Noel Gallagher (solo or with Oasis) at 12/1.
Speaking to NME, Dave Grohl said that they were certainly up for it. “I mean, it’s an iconic festival. I just tell everyone if they need a band, we’re pretty good. They should give us a call. See what happens.”
Foo Fighters released their new album Sonic Highways today November 7th. It’s the group’s eighth album and features guest appearances from the Eagles’ Joe Walsh, Death Cab For Cutie’s Ben Gibbard and Cheap Trick’s Rick Nielsen.
The website eFestivals have predicted that they’re ‘confident’ that English rockers Coldplay will top the Pyramid Stage. Last year the site predicted that Kasabian and Metallica would be the headline acts for Glasto 2014.
Foo Fighters headline Slane Castle in May, with support from Hozier and Kaiser Chiefs. Tickets priced €79.50 inclusive of booking fee.
