Rolling Stones to headline Glastonbury 2013?

By
The Rolling Stones are reportedly close to being booked for next year's Glastonbury music festival.

Festival boss Michael Eavis is allegedly desperate to book the iconic band to headline the Pyramid Stage at the event, which runs June 26-30.

"The band are gearing up for a load of live dates but tend to leave big decisions like this until the last minute," a source told The Sun.

"Michael Eavis is desperate to get the band confirmed and has made initial contact with their people.

"It would be a massive coup to get the band playing Glasto on what could be their last round of live dates.

"Getting a decision from the whole band can be tough and at the moment they are without an agent for live shows, which is not helping the situation. But there is a good chance 2013 will finally be the year they make it."

It would mark the first time The Rolling Stones play Glastonbury festival, despite celebrating 50 years in the industry this year.

The Rolling Stones recently unveiled new track 'Doom and Gloom' from their forthcoming greatest hits set GRRR!, which is due out on November 12.
