One of the biggest acts rumoured to be at Glastonbury 2019 is now looking extremely unlikely after Paul McCartney added a conflicting Las Vegas date to his tour.

Paul will now be playing at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on the Saturday of Glastonbury, 29th June.

NME reported last year that Paul McCartney was “top of the list” of headliners wanted by organiser Emily Eavis.

She said in an interview: “Oh we always want him – he’s top of our list. We’ll have to see.”

Bookmakers had previously offered 8/11 odds on McCartney headlining Glastonbury this year, making him one of the favourites.

Sky Bet are currently offering 1/2 on The Cure headlining, 11/10 on The Strokes, and 4/1 on Lez Zeppelin, Mumford and Sons, and Fleetwood Mac.

The only Pyramid stage headliner confirmed so far is Stormzy, whilst Janelle Monae will headline the West Holts stage.

Kylie Minogue will take the Sunday teatime ‘legends slot’ on the Pyramid Stage.

Paul McCartney told BBC Radio 2’s Jo Whiley back in June last year that his daughters have encouraged him to headline Glastonbury, and that he’d “probably” do it if he was asked by organisers.

Meanwhile, The Lancashire Post reported today that their readers had found a pothole resembling McCartney.

Emily Eavis revealed last week that a totally new area will be introduced near The Park, and Block 9 will be expanded to double its previous size.

The full line-up is usually announced around the end of May, but more acts are usually revealed every few weeks. Other artists ‘self-confirm’ by letting slip in interviews or during their gigs.
