Rumor: Cure to play Glastonbury?

Rumors have been going around since last year that The Cure might headline Glastonbury this year, and those rumors have picked up steam lately, with UK bookies making them the favorites. It should be pointed out that until a few weeks ago, the bookies had Paul McCartney as the other favorite, and that was wrong, so keep that in mind. If they do play, tickets are sold out, but there will be a resale in April, for any returned tickets. If you are interested in trying for these tickets, make sure you register here.

From Radio X:

The Cure and The Killers are tipped to complete the line-up of headliners at Glastonbury 2019, say the bookies.

The Friday I'm In Love legends have been given 2/5 odds of topping the bill on the Pyramid Stage at the Somerset Festival, with the Mr. Brightside rockers given odds of 8/11.

Betway's Alan Alger said in a press release: "With Stormzy already announced, rumours continue to circle on who will be Glastonbury’s second and third headliners.

“The Cure are no strangers to the Somerset festival and we make them the 2/5 favourites to rock it out once again, with the market suggesting The Killers at 8/11 are likely to join them.

The Cure have headlined Glastonbury three times already, last playing Worthy Farm in 1995.

Speaking to the BBC about the possibility of playing the festival again in 2018, frontman Robert Smith said: "Yeah, maybe. We haven't had a happy history with Glastonbury over the years."Although we've headlined three times, we've never been on the best of terms.

"I don't know if they forgive and forget. There are enough other festivals for us to play."
