The NME is reporting that U2 is #1 on Glastonbury organizer Michael Eavis’ wish-list for Glastonbury 2005:
Eavis said: “I’d like to get U2 headlining for next year and I’ll be making a phone call to them.”
He told Virtual Festivals: “I know they like to do their own thing but, then again, so does Paul McCartney, and they don’t come much bigger than him.”
McCartney, Oasis, and Muse are headlining this year’s festival, which takes place this weekend in England. Eavis also mentions a desire to re-court Prince, who has come close to headlining the festival twice in the last two years but has pulled out before the lineup was announced.
