Coldplay have “dreamed” of playing at Glastonbury since they were children.
The ‘Every Teardrop is a Waterfall’ hitmakers – who will headline the festival in Somerset, South West England, on Saturday (06/25/11) – admitted nerves are already mounting in anticipation of the event, which they believe is “the mother” of all music events.
Guitarist Jonny Buckland said: “It’s the ultimate festival, the mother of all festivals, the peak, and the one we dreamed of playing when we were kids. I’m already feeling nervous!”
Meanwhile, frontman Chris Martin compared receiving the phone call from Glastonbury organiser Michael Eavis asking them to perform to being “asked to dance” by ‘Twilight star Robert Pattinson.
He joked: “It was like getting asked to dance by Robert Pattinson if you’re a young girl.”
