Gorillaz replace U2

Following the recent news that U2 have pulled out of their headlining slot at this year’s Glastonbury Festival due to Bono injuring his back, it has been confirmed that Gorillaz are to replace them.

Speaking on NME‘s website Damon Albarn said: “It’s a terrible thing for U2. “Glastonbury is magical. Gorillaz will come to life on that stage, but we wish Bono all the best.”

Speaking on glastonburyfestivals.co.uk organiser Michael Eavis is said to be excited about the latest edition he said: “This is going to be Gorillaz’ only UK festival appearance, and it’ll be a massive audio-visual spectacle which will really ignite the Pyramid on the Friday night.”

Not a bad replacement but they are certainly no U2. People who weren’t keen on the idea of U2 in the first place are probably thrilled they have had to pull out but if i were going i would be extremely disappointed as U2 are exceptional live.
