Glastonbury did, indeed, offer the slot vacated by Kylie Minogue to The Killers (although not the entire wing of a hospital she had vacated); but the band turned it down, in a very self-aware way.

Drummer Ronnie Vannucci explains:

“We were offered the headlining slot but we didn’t take it because we’re basically a band that’s been around for, as far as the UK’s concerned, a little over a year. So we didn’t think we were deserving of a headlining slot, we’re just happy to be playing in a good spot at Glastonbury anyway. We only have one album out.”

They have said they'd be interested in closing Glasto in 2007. Yeah, we're sure you will be.

Glastonbury are rumoured to have gone "Phew... thank god they said 'no'; we meant to offer it to The Kills anyway..."
