EXCLUSIVE!! Eavis eyes U2 for Glastonbury 2005
21 June 2004
Having booked some of the best bands in the world to play at Glastonbury in recent times, Michael
Eavis is turning his attention towards U2
for next year, as well as refocusing on persuading Prince to play.
In an exclusive interview with Virtual Festivals, he said: "I'd like to get U2 headlining for next year and I'll be making a phone call to them.
"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.
"I might also try Prince again. We approached him for this year and he seemed interested but in the end he couldn't make it."
U2 have never played Glastonbury before and have not toured since their Elevation dates in 2001.
