Coldplay Convinced Beyonce To Play Glastonbury
21 Jun 2011
Coldplay’s Chris Martin is slowly becoming the patron Saint of the rock and pop stars. With Glastonbury coming up this weekend, Festival organiser, Emily Eaves revealed that Chris Martin sweet-talked Beyonce into her headline appearance this Sunday.
Beyonce’s husband, Jay-Z headlined Glastonbury in 2008 and, while receiving great reviews following his show, the superstar rapper was subjected to bad mouthing by the rock press and Glastonbury’s overly rock fans. Most famously ex-Oasis guitarero, Noel Gallagher launched into the Festival organisers decision to book a non-rock act as headliner.
Chris Martin, who’s actress wife Gwyneth Paltrow is a close friend of Beyonce, will be headlining Glastonbury on Saturday night with Coldplay, while Irish rocker U2 top the bill on Friday.
Glastonbury has been completely sold out, but you can still get to see Coldplay and Beyonce headline T in the Park Festival. Click here for T in the Park Festival tickets.
