7 Reasons U2 Have No Excuse Not To Perform At Glastonbury

7 Reasons U2 Have No Excuse Not To Perform At Glastonbury

So, yesterday, U2 had to pull out of their scheduled headline appearance at this year’s Glastonbury because Bono needs to rest his back.

1.  Primetime. This time around, the Winter Olympics are in Vancouver. That means it will be shown on the TV in the evenings. Assuming you are reading this in the UK that is. Watching sport on a weeknight evening is brilliant. It is what makes life so enjoyable. 2.  We Might Win A Medal. And if we do, it will almost certainly be won by someone we haven’t heard of.
