Andy Copping says Def Leppard are worthy headliners
Copping was addressing fan criticism of his decision to book Def Leppard as the festival’s final headliner this June.
Asked why he hadn’t pursued Metallica, Copping responded by saying: “Metallica are a great band but if they went away for three or four years then came back then they’d be even bigger. When they keep coming back they become boring.”
Copping added: “Metallica have toured extensively and have been here for seven of the last eight summers. For me that is definitely overdoing it.”
