    The Sun: Coldplay will headline Glastonbury 2011 on the Saturday night (25th June)

    glastonbury.jpgAccording to The Sun this weekend, Coldplay have been confirmed as headliners for the Saturday night (25th June) at this year's Glastonbury, although it has yet to be officially announced. We wait with baited breath for the nod from Coldplay.com. Below is The Sun's report, in which they also confirm that The Rolling Stones will not be playing as was previously rumoured.

    Coldplay will headline Glastonbury's top Saturday night slot this year. It's their first pilgrimage to Worthy Farm since 2005 - when they went down a storm. Glasto guru Michael Eavis and his event organisers have been chasing Chris Martin and the lads to make a return - as Bizarre revealed in October.


    And this week the rockers finally put pen to paper on the deal. One massive outfit who will not be performing in Pilton are the Rolling Stones. Bash bosses had tabled a huge offer for Mick Jagger's gang to make their festival debut at Glasto, which kicks off on June 22. But after mulling over the deal for the past three months, the veterans have turned down the chance.

    A source said: "Getting the Stones to Glastonbury has been high on Michael Eavis's list of priorities for a long time. He came really really close this time round. He came up with an incredibly tempting offer and Mick and the rest of the band were considering it closely but they ultimately decided to turn it down."


    Still, Coldplay aren't too much of a shonky replacement. Their back catalogue is filled with anthems perfect for the Pyramid Stage. And they're bound to get a massive welcome. UK crowds don't get much bigger than the 200,000 or so who squeeze into the Somerset site for the huge bash.
