Mr Hudson, Kanye West and Robert Plant/Led Zep for Glasto 2010?

By | Rumours | No Comments

As I can’t find the news anywhere else other than Twitter, I’m gonna post a couple of twitter feeds from BBC 6 Music (I believe that these quotes are being take at the Q awards today) that I think people may find interesting, the first if from Mr. Hudson.

Mr hudson says he’d love to play glastonbury 2010 – and unsurprisingly wants Kanye to headline. Are you listening eavis family?

The second one is something I think ALOT more people will be interested it……….ROBERT PLANT

Robert plant says he’s been talking to michael eavis about playing Glastonbury

This would be absolutely HUGE news, which I hope becomes a reality. We have no info on if it just Robert Plant or all of Led Zep, we’ll just have to wait and see what happens

[UPDATE] The following is taken from the BBC 6 Music News pages.

Led Zeppelin frontman Robert Plant has admitted he has spoken to festival organiser Michael Eavis about performing at Glastonbury next year.

Speaking to BBC 6 Music at the Q Awards he said: “I’ve just been talking to Michael [Eavis]. There’s place for me there, but I have no idea who with.”

Pulp - The Band

In an interview with Katie Hind for, Jarvis Cocker has hinted that Pulp might reform for Glastonbury Festival 2010

The singer let slip they could be heading for the mud in June, saying: “Glastonbury means an awful lot to me, I would love to play there again. We’ve talked about it, there we go, there’ll be a band reunion.”

[UPDATE] According to Teletext’s Planet Sound, Jarvis has denied the above story
Pulp will definitely not be reforming, PS can reveal.

Newspapers have made the claim for the last two weeks.

But Jarvis Cocker told PS: “I can categorically tell Teletext that Pulp have no plans to get back together. Someone asked me if I fancied playing at the 40th anniversary of Glastonbury, I said yes, they twisted that into a ‘Pulp reform’ story. It’s not true.”[/UPDATE] [UPDATE 2] BBC 6 Music have spoken to Jarvis who says he didn’t say what has been attributed to him, however they won’t rule out a Glasto appearance. 6 Music news will have more details later.[/UPADTE 2]
