U2 set for debut at Glastonbury Festival

15 Apr

Every good concert needs a good performer. Every good festival needs several. Every awesome festival needs a list that makes you drop your jaw and go wow. The Glastonbury Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts never ceases to amaze with their band lists.

The festival, which will be held at Worthy Farm in Somerset, England, between June 23-27, should be another tremendous display of musical talent.

22-time Grammy Award winners, U2, will be making their first appearance at the festival, joining prog/pop rock band Muse, the Pet Shop Boys, Willie Nelson, The Flaming Lips, Ray Davies and others on the grand Pyramid Stage. Not to be outdone, Stevie Wonder, who is the proud owner of 25 Grammy Awards, will also make his Glastonbury debut.

The line-up is incredibly diverse and consists of countless bands, some known and some completely unknown. Glancing over the line-up, if I was going I would be most excited to see Willie Nelson, Muse, Jackson Browne, Stevie Wonder, Ray Davies, Pet Shop Boys, Grizzly Bear and The Magic Numbers. I am a big fan of the underrated Magic Numbers. That is an incredible list of musicians that will all be performing, on separate days, at this festival. If you are going, get excited. Take lots of pictures and post here to tell me how the concert was. Festival founder Michael Eavis told the Guardian newspaper, “This is it! It is the most staggering line-up, to match the 40-year reputation of the festival.” I have to agree.

Quick. How much money do you think this album will run you? It looks pretty crummy and worn. Maybe, $10. Try 100,000 pound sterling. This recording of Buddy Holly’s, “That’ll Be The Day,” is the original Quarrymen recording in 1958. The Quarrymen consisted of Paul McCartney, John Lennon, George Harrison, drummer Colin Hanton and pianist John Duff Lowe. This single is the only known copy of the pre-Beatles’ disc. It was recorded in an electrical shop. Here are pictures of the 20 most valuable records ever according to NME.
