The Rolling Stones were today named the bookies' favourites as the headliner to close next year's sell-out Glastonbury Festival, according to NME today, with Coldplay joint second favourites. Despite none of the acts being announced until next year, tickets for the event sold out within hours of going on sale and now bookmakers and fans are speculating on who will close the final night.
"We have lost a few quid on the headline act for two years running and it will be interesting to see if punters get it right again," said William Hill's spokesman Rupert Adams.
The bookmakers have The Rolling Stones as 4/1 favourites to play top of the bill on the Sunday night next year, with Coldplay and David Bowie joint second favourites at 8/1. Oasis, whose guitarist Noel Gallagher quit the group in August are ranked 33/1 down from 50/1 after a number of speculative bets.
"Right now the brothers may feel that the split is irreconcilable but in the cold light of day they may change their mind and Glastonbury would be the perfect place for a triumphant return," Adams added.
The full odds on who will close the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury 2010 with William Hill are:
Rolling Stones 4/1
David Bowie 8/1
Artic Monkeys 12/1
Elton John 16/1
Red Hot Chilli Peppers 16/1
Kings Of Leon 16/1
Green Day 20/1
Robbie Williams 20/1
Stone Roses 20/1
Spandau Ballet 25/1
Manic Street Preachers 25/1
Take That 33/1
