Rolling Stones to headline Glasto?

The Rolling Stones are rumoured to be performing at Glastonbury next year

The Rolling Stones are said to be in final negotiations to headline at Glastonbury 2013.

Boss Michael Eavis has apparently tried for years to get the rock legends to perform at his music festival at Worthy Farm in Somerset, and now The Sun claims next year could finally be the year.

Stones Mick Jagger, Ronnie Wood, Keith Richards and Charlie Watts are celebrating their 50th anniversary this year and are about to announce their next tour, with dates in London and New York. And a live performance on the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury in June could be the perfect way to cap it off.

An insider said: "The band are gearing up for a load of live dates but tend to leave big decisions like this until the last minute.

"Michael Eavis is desperate to get the band confirmed and has made initial contact with their people.

"It would be a massive coup to get the band playing Glasto on what could be their last round of live dates.

"Getting a decision from the whole band can be tough and at the moment they are without an agent for live shows, which is not helping the situation.

"But there is a good chance 2013 will finally be the year they make it."

Meanwhile, Mumford And Sons are also said to be in talks to headline the festival.

A colleague who takes great pleasure in making everyone feel miserable should be reprimanded. Make it clear you aren't the only person who is suffering from their abuse. Explain how this bully is ruining morale. It's a system wide problem that needs to be nipped in the bud.More
