The Boss takes control of Glastonbury

Bruce Springsteen has been announced at this year’s Saturday headliner at Glastonbury, taking over the slot filled last year by Jay-Z.

A less controversial option, you might think, but my mum isn’t convinced he’s such a great choice. My mum doesn’t programme the festival though, Michael Eavis does. And Michael Eavis says: “He’s one of the all-time rock legends and I’m confident that this will be one of our best shows ever”.

Eavis’ daughter and co-organiser Emily added: “I’m knocked out that we’ve managed to get Bruce to play. It’s the icing on the cake of this year’s bill, which I’m sure will take everyone’s breath away when we announce the full details”.
