The Rolling Stones: 'We're not playing 2010 Glastonbury festival'

Band announce they 'won't be touring this year'

The Rolling Stones: 'We're not playing 2010 Glastonbury festival'
The Rolling Stones have declared that they will not be playing at the Glastonbury festival this year, following rumours that they were set for a headline slot.

The band addressed the issue directly, saying that the festival rumours were false and that they would not be touring at all in 2010.

"Following recent UK media speculation, The Rolling Stones would like to make it clear there are no plans at the moment for the band to tour in 2010," a spokesperson for the band told NME.COM.

Meanwhile, the band are set to release a reissue of their 1972 classic 'Exile On Main Street' in May featuring a host of unreleased songs including 'Plunder My Soul', 'Following The River' and 'Sophia Loren'.

U2 have been announced as one headliner for Glastonbury and a second unnamed act has also been confirmed for the Pyramid Stage top spot, while organiser Emily Eavis has said that Dizzee Rascal will probably be appearing at the festival too.
