Earlier this month Adam Lambert and Queen were added to the huge list of possible names that could headline Glastonbury 2015 when it returns in June next year.
The stars were mentioned along with Paul McCartney, AC/DC, Muse and of course Prince to name a few but now, it seems like Adam Lambert and Queen headlining isn’t going to happen.
Michael Eavis, Glastonbury founder, spoke with Music Week and revealed that Queen won’t be headlining the festival in June and also shot down reports about Fleetwood Mac.
“Queen? Not Queen, no. Fleetwood Mac don’t seem to be available at the moment. But we’ve got three excellent headliners for next year.” he explained.
The festival organiser added though that fans will learn the three headliners by April and explained that one of them has been around for a “long time”.
Could it be that Queen are headlining but Eavis and the Glastonbury team want to be the ones to break then news to the world and not the bookies?
It would make sense for Queen and Adam Lambert to headline the festival, they would have already performed a series of dates around the UK on their European tour and this would be the perfect conclusion.
Earlier this week we reported how Roger Taylor praised Adam during an interview with Billboard and explained how he slotted into the band “beautifully” during their tour.
“The European dates will be interesting for Adam because I think he’s more known in the States and places like Australia than he is in Europe.” he explained.
The Queen drummer added that each night “the reception was tremendous” and they were delighted that after all those years they could still go out and put on a show like that.
So, what do you think? Do you think Michael Eavis is just trying to put us off the scent of headliners? Who do you think it could be? Who would YOU like to see headline the festival?
