Even though I won’t be going this year, I always like to keep an eye open for who is rumoured to be appearing at the Glastonbury festival.
Traditionally, the full, massive line-up is kept under wraps until long after the tickets have sold out, but the internet is usually kept busy speculating and this year is no different.
So far, only Radiohead have been officially confirmed, and then earlier this week various news outlets confirmed another act had announced on their website that they were performing on the Pyramid Stage : Kris Kristofferson.
However, a Glastonbury spokesbod refused to confirm his appearance, and a quick visit to his website today shows no such announcement, so I can’t help but wonder whether he’s been told he’s not supposed to have let it slip and has removed it from the site. Certainly there is now no listing for Saturday 23rd June, the day he was rumoured to performing.
Anyway, here’s one of his tunes from 1978’s “Easter Island”, a highlight from an album which isn’t exactly one of my favourites, but this is still a rather fine track, an upbeat one to get your Sunday going:
More soon (and yes, that does mean The Chain).
