Glastonbury Festival founder Michael Eavis could get his wish of attracting Fleetwood Mac to Somerset after Mick Fleetwood drops hint
Eavis said in June he had lowered his ambitions to getting a Stevie Nicks solo performance
Could Fleetwood Mac finally be close to headlining Glastonbury Festival ?
Somerset Live revealed during Glastonbury 2017 in June that Michael Eavis was still keen on getting Fleetwood Mac on the Pyramid Stage in Somerset.
In a Q&A event at Worthy Farm, Eavis said the band, beloved around the globe for their Rumours record, had too many managers - which made booking them difficult.
The festival founder said: "They’ve got so many managers I can't agree a price. Stevie Nicks would be good. Maybe I could get her on her own.”
In the same Q&A Eavis revealed he wanted The Smiths and Pink Floyd to reform so he could have them at Glasto.
But despite seemingly lowering his sights to a solo Stevie Nicks performance, reports in the national media suggest Fleetwood Mac could be back on the table for Glastonbury 2019 or 2020.
Mick Fleetwood has told the Daily Express Glastonbury's previous requests were just a matter of bad timing.
“One day we’ll just get on a plane and come over and do it,” the Rumours hit-maker apparently said at the London launch of his new book Love That Burns.
The Express say Fleetwood added he personally thinks Glastonbury would be "great" to do.
The musician, 70, also said his older sister lives near one of landowners involved in putting on Glastonbury.
That proximity also meant Fleetwood Mac performing at a previous festival but it's never come off.
Could 2020 be the year - for Glastonbury's 50th birthday?
