Rolling Stones quash Glastonbury speculation

The Rolling Stones have today quashed the continuing rumours that they will be headlining this year's Glastonbury Festival.

For many, the inclusion of the band alongside U2 at the top of the bill would have been a fairytale pairing, but Mick Jagger and Co have this morning (Tuesday) confirmed that they won’t be hitting the road in 2010.

A statement from the bands reads: "Following recent UK media speculation, The Rolling Stones would like to make it clear, there are no plans at the moment for the band to tour in 2010."

Muse and Radiohead are still rumoured for the 40th anniversary of the festival along with a host of other acts.
