US band are hot favourites to headline Pyramid Stage next year
Bookmakers have stopped taking bets on Fleetwood Mac headlining Glastonbury Festival in 2014
Ladbrokes were previously offering odds of 1/4 on seeing the band, famous for their albums ‘Rumours’ and ‘Tusk’, headline the Pyramid Stage in June next year. However, following an increased period of speculation and Fleetwood Mac’s recent UK tour dates, the betting has been suspended. Ladbrokes also offer odds on Fleetwood Mac being joined at the top of the bill by Daft Punk, who are currently 6/4 to be named the second headline act.
Joining Fleetwood Mac and Daft Punk as favourites to be headlining the three-day festival in 2014 are Depeche Mode, who have odds of 6/4, while David Bowie is at 3/1. Elbow and Oasis, who would need to reform in order to play, who are currently both listed at 4/1 by the bookmaker. Prince, Kasabian and Arcade Fire are also considered worthy of a bet.
