Ronnie Wood: Rolling Stones hope to play Glastonbury Festival

Wood wants Worthy Farm slot

Chris Swindells - 28 February 2013

Talking to Reuters Television on the red carpet at the star-studded event, Ronnie Wood said: "Keep your eye out because you know I want to do some more (live shows) and I know that the boys do too,"

When asked about playing Glastonbury for the first time in their long career, Wood replied: "I want to do it badly, but I've no idea yet ... but I am just looking forward to. ... I know we're the best live, so I just hope we get it."

The Rolling Stones won two awards for 'Best Live Act' and 'Best Film', for documentary 'Crossfire Hurricane', and Wood was on hand to accept a pair of irreverent "middle finger" statuettes.

The Stones returned to the live arena in November last year to celebrate 50 years in business, and the sold out shows in London, New York and New Jersey were a hit with both critics and fans.

Reading & Leeds Festivals beat Primavera and Bestival to win 'Best Festival' and Festival No.6 in Portmerion, Wales won 'Best Small Festival'.

Other big winners on the night were Reading and Leeds Festival 2013 headliners Biffy Clyro, who picked up 'Best British Band', and T In The Park and Isle of Wight Festival headliners The Killers who picked up 'Best International Band'.

The Maccabees' 'Given To The Wild' was named the best album and 'Inhaler' by Foals the best track of the year.

Thus far only a handful of acts have been confirmed for Glastonbury Festival 2013, including Nas and Rokia Traore. Glastonbury Festival 2013 takes place on Worthy Farm, Somerset from June 26-30 and a full line-up announcement is expected in April.
