'I tried to get Prince'

Michael Eavis has revealed that he tried to get Prince to play this year’s Glastonbury festival. It would have been better if he’d revealed that he has signed him up to play at Glasto, but this will have to do.

The purple one has signed up to play at the Hop Farm festival in Kent in July, which is something of a strange choice. Maybe he wanted to make sure he towered over all the othjer puny acts on the bill at Hop Farm – either that or he really hates Coldplay and U2.

‘I tried to get Prince earlier on,’ he said. ‘At one point, he was, then he wasn't, then he was. It was a question of a bird in the hand. A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush, if not three in a bush. In the end I went for the bands we have on the bill now, which ain't bad.
