As far as I know, the trouble with Glastonbury 2015 all started when they put Kanye West on the lineup and people were pissed…so pissed they signed a petition and at last count that petition was 130,000 pissed-people strong.
Kanye-haters even called in death threats to festival organizers…Yep over music.
Btw do you practice in the mirror before you call in a death threat? Probably right? Loses the effect if you stutter, hang up and have to call back.
Enter Dave Grohl, Foo Fighters Frontman, residing Mayor of Rock and Roll and fellow Glastonbury headliner…
Dave sticks up for Kanye, says it’s gonna be “punk rock” for him to step out on the stage because “100,000 could bottle him” and he has faith Kanye will pull it off, momentarily quelling the crowd.
Wrong…Dave breaks his leg on stage and has to cancel Glastonbury gig per doctor’s orders.
Sh*t just got real.
So who did they pick as a replacement for a high energy good time beloved rock band?
A lady who sings lullabies. Pretty lullabies but lullabies none the less.
Will Kanye rage intensify? or will Florence and her soothing sounds machine calm the crowd??
Good luck Glastonbury, I will pray for you.
Ps – Dave Grohl wanted me to give you this letter. Click here to read.
