Bookies Say Prince For Glastonbury
The UK betting chain says Prince and Metallica are favourites at 5/4, although – as New Musical Express points out – festival founder Michael Eavis has previously said he doesn’t think metal bands are suitable and his daughter Emily has said Prince isn’t happening this year.
Rival bookie William Hill seems to have inside info – or even a hunch – that Kasabian will top the bill on Sunday night, and have suspended betting on the Leicester band.
Paddy Power is offering 5/1 against Kasabian headlining the Saturday. Paddy Power’s odds on the Saturday-night headliner are 5/4 for Prince and Metallica, 5/1 Kasabian, 9/1 Fleetwood Mac and 10/1 Elbow.
The acts who have confirmed Glastonbury appearances (June 25-29) include Dolly Parton, Lily Allen, Disclosure and Courtney Barnett, The Black Keys, and Lana Del Rey.
