The Boss on the farm

So, that's who's this year's super-secret-surprise for Glastonbury: It's Jay-Z again.

Alright, it's not.

In one of those about-faces we've come to expect from Worthy Farm, last year's plan of bringing in younger, edgier acts to attract back the teenagers has been abandoned as this year Bruce Springsteen is headlining Saturday.

The Eavises, though, are excited:

"He's one of the all-time rock legends and I'm confident that this will be one of our best shows ever," festival founder Michael Eavis said.

... and even if it isn't, we'll still issue releases saying that it was.
Co-organiser Emily Eavis said: "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."

" might put the cat amongst the pigeons, but we thought you only live once, and as this is the first day of the rest of our lives, we ran the idea up the flagpole..."

The world is now waiting to see if Noel Gallagher will approve or disapprove.
