Hi Guys


Here at Muzu.tv we cannot wait to hear Coldplay LIVE at Glastonbury!! we're all waiting in eager anticipation of the crowds reaction to Coldplay's New Single Strawberry Swing!


We even have an Exclusive Glastonbury Channel and Playlist so you can listen to the whole line up!!


Happy Watching!!

Strawberry Swing isn't the new single and Jerry might have confused it with ETIAW... but the site has some nice videos. :)


So far there is no channel link for Glastonbury (at least it didn't come up in the search) but if there will be one I'm looking forward to it!

Coldplay's Chris Martin helped convince Beyoncé to play Glastonbury

Fans trudging off to see Beyoncé at Glastonbury this weekend can thank Coldplay's Chris Martin for her appearance.




It’s emerged the singer was reluctant to sign up to the show over fears of a public backlash. Only some sweet-talking from Mr Martin, 34, secured her booking at Worthy Farm in Somerset, we’re told.


The US superstar was apparently wary of showing up following the flak her husband, Jay-Z, 41, experienced before his Glasto appearance.


The rapper topped the bill in 2008, despite famously being deemed an inappropriate booking by then Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher.


Now Martin is personally making sure his wife Gwyneth Paltrow’s bezzie mate is not subjected to the same music snobbery and receives a warm reception, according to co-organiser Emily Eavis.


‘Chris is a bit wary of people knowing he’s been so involved,’ Emily told Radio Times. ‘I don’t know why because it’s actually cool. Chris is as loyal as they come – he’ll do anything for Glastonbury. He’s really an unlikely frontman. Most people are a bit more all-consumed with their own thing.’


Beyoncé plans to throw all of her energy into her Sunday night appearance after planning her summer around it.


‘Luckily, we spoke to Beyoncé before she planned her tour this year, so she managed to put Glastonbury in her schedule, then build a European tour around it,’ Emily added.


But the 31-year-old said she and her father, 75-year-old Michael Eavis, were used to the toughest of battles to nail their showstoppers.


‘There’s so much bartering and hustle with the booking agents. A lot of agents are not that keen on Glastonbury,’ she said. ‘They just don’t get it because it doesn’t pay enough money.’


Coldplay will warm up the Pyramid stage for Beyoncé when they headline on Saturday.

The big ones coming up fast now!Excitement!


Any thoughts on the set list? Part of me wants them to do a raw coldplay performance without the new songs, Glastonbury should be about the classics!

BBC's plans for Glastonbury on radio and on tv detailed below. Brief listings of BBC TV's Glastonbury schedule (courtesy of musicweek.com) included. Full live performance of Coldplay on BBC 2 from 9.45pm. U2 cuts to BBC 4 on Friday to make way for Newsnight at 10.30pm. Highlights of Coldplay's performance broadcast on BBC 4 on Sunday evening as well. Plenty of fantastic acts to get your teeth into!



6 Music, Radio 1 and Radio 2 are joining together for a “triple-cast” across the three networks to launch the BBC’s Glastonbury coverage this year.


On Thursday June 23, the day the festival kicks off, the three stations are teaming up for a two-hour show called Introducing Glastonbury, in which Steve Lamacq, Jo Whiley and Zane Lowe will preview the Beeb’s coverage of Glastonbury 2011.


This coverage takes place across the three radio stations – 6 Music is again the BBC’s “radio home” for Glastonbury – as well as on 1Xtra, Radio 4, TV stations BBC Two, Three and Four, via four Red Button streams and online at bbc.co.uk/Glastonbury.


Coverage includes live headline sets, festival highlights, interviews, acoustic sets, festival news updates and what is described as “a voyage into the weird and wonderful far reaches of the festival” courtesy of Music Week Award-winning station 6 Music.


Online, the BBC’s dedicated website will offer live video streaming of performances, as well as guides to the festival from BBC DJs, something the Corporation pioneered at the recent Radio 1 Big Weekend.


Extended highlights of more than 60 performances will then be able to watch on-demand following the event.


Coverage takes place across the Glastonbury weekend – June 23 to 26 – with highlights running the following week, including a special edition of Radio 4's science/comedy show The Infinite Monkey Cage, recorded in the festival's Cabaret Marquee and broadcast on Monday 27.


6 Music editor Paul Rodgers said, “6 Music's coverage of Glastonbury has gone from strength to strength over the past few years and I'm very proud of what we've been able to achieve from a small studio in a very big field. This year will be no exception and I know that we'll be able to bring the best of the festival to our listeners."
