U2 – Pyramid Stage – Friday 25 – 22.00
43 DAYS TO GO
My mate loves u2 and I mean really loves them. Bono in particular , once , he found out where he lived and sat outside his house all day waiting for a glimpse and to take a photo.
Which is a little bit weird. Apart from his Bono obsession he is pretty normal. He does like taking photos of himself as well. So Brett this blog is for you.
On to U2 themselves, well they have a pretty impressive resume , if you don’t have Joshua Tree or Achtung Baby in your record collection you are one of only 17 people in the entire world who hasn’t. Anyway u2 are playing Glastonbury for the first time in 2010. This in itself is quite amazing, as they have been going since 1328.
I saw them at Wembley Stadium in 1990 something and they were pretty cool, I think Bono tried to phone some president or another on stage. The difference between now and then is If he tried now he would get through.
It’s quite a coup for Glasto to get U2 because no matter what you think of them they are without doubt the biggest band in the world.
Therefore I would think Friday night at the Pyramid will be packed but I think I will steer clear, nothing against Bono or Brett for that matter but I don’t need to see the biggest band in the world when I go to the biggest festival in the world. Whoever it maybe.
