Metallica will perform at the Glastonbury festival this year, a decision that is currently being opposed by a bunch of buttdarts who dig Arcade Fire.
Glastonbury’s founder and organizer, Michael Eavis, has defended his decision to book the band as one of the headliners of this year’s event.
He says that no other band has been as “keen” to play the festival as metallica, the first metal band to headline a night at the festival in its 40-plus-year history.
“e have been going for so long that people don’t expect us to put on a heavy metal band,” Eavis said, reports Sky News.
“We had Rage Against The Machine and we have had lots of fairly heavy metal bands in the past but this is not a typical headline. We usually have bands like Radiohead, Coldplay and U2, The Rolling Stones, but I am really looking forward to them.
“There’s no other band in the whole history of the festival that has been so keen to play. They will do the best set of their lives here.”
