Noel Gallagher Wants Hip-Hop To Stop At Glastonbury
Published Apr 14, 2008Noel Gallagher (guitarist of Oasis) might have just made himself another enemy. According to BBC News UK The Brit rocker has recently complained about hip-hop being included on this summers Glastonbury Festival line-up.
Gallagher has claimed Jay-Z is the reason tickets havent sold as well as hoped. And he thinks its "wrong that the Jigga Man is headlining the event. Although 100,000 tickets sold on the first day, previous years have seen tickets selling out within hours.
Gallagher said, "If it aint broke, dont fix it. If you start to break it then people arent going to go. Im sorry, but Jay-Z? No chance. But we all know that the outspoken Noel didnt stop there. "Glastonbury has a tradition of guitar music and even when they throw the odd curveball in on a Sunday night, you go, Kylie Minogue? he continued. "I dont know about it. But Im not having hip-hop at Glastonbury. Its wrong.
The full line-up for the festival will be announced on May 1.
Gallagher did speak of more pleasant things; Oasiss seventh studio album is done. "That's finished. All done. Were just kind of waiting to get a record deal and get it out. Weve not managed to get a title yet. Were in the middle of doing the artwork. Down to a shortlist of about three.
