Emily Eavis rules Manchester legends out on Twitter
Chris Eustace - 28 September 2012
The Glastonbury co-organiser, daughter of festival founder Michael Eavis, took to Twitter earlier to ask her followers who they’d like to see play next year’s event, tweeting: "Right,the time has come to ask you all who you want to see at next years Glastonbury..let us know as we gather all our ideas and get going!"
Suggestions for next year included Prince, Fleetwood Mac, Daft Punk, Richard Hawley, Elbow, Pulp, Frank Turner, David Bowie, Lady Gaga, The Waterboys (for whom Eavis promised she was “on it”), Radiohead and The Rolling Stones, but when she was asked about Ian Brown and co.’s chances of playing, she replied: “Stone Roses not playing next year.”
