Frontman backs the booking saying it's 'no bad thing' and says he is friends with Lars Ulrich
Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner has described Metallica headlining Glastonbury as being an “out there decision” but one that he approves of.
As previously reported, Metallica have been confirmed as the third and final headline act at Glastonbury 2014, joining fellow headliners Arcade Fire and Kasabian at the top of the bill. Arctic Monkeys headlined the festival for the second time last year (2013).
Speaking to NME in the video you can see at the top of this page, Turner says he is friends with Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich and applauds both the band and festival for “not shooting straight” with their decision to book the metal giants for this year’s event.
