10cc reported to have been offered the Legends Slot at Glastonbury Festival

But only if the original line-up reformed…

It has been reported that Graham Gouldman claims 10cc were offered the Legends Slot at Glastonbury Festival.

According to the Daily Mail, the ‘I’m Not In Love’ hitmaker says it’s unlikely the band will make it to Worthy Farm to play the Sunday afternoon teatime slot, as the Festival would like it to be the original line-up – which along with Graham also includes Kevin Godley, Lol Creme and Eric Stewart.

The 76-year-old star apparently told the Eden Confidential column earlier today (6 July), that the likelihood of it happening is very low, saying: “We’ve had an offer to play the legends slot at Glastonbury. But they want the original line-up to reform. I don’t think that’s likely.”

The report doesn’t specify when the offer to play the coveted Glastonbury slot – reserved solely for iconic artists – was presented to the band.

In 2012, 10cc embarked on a 40th-anniversary tour, however, the only original member to hit the road was Graham Gouldman.

The touring line-up currently comprises Graham, Paul Burgess, Rick Fenn, Keith Hayman and Iain Hornal.

10cc was formed in Stockport in 1972 and had five consecutive UK Top 10 albums, between 1972 to 1978.

Kevin and Lol quit the band in 1976 due to artistic disagreements and became a duo, while Eric departed in 1995.

Other names currently spinning in the Rumour Mill include Spice Girls, Arctic Monkeys and Elton John.

Recap;

Glastonbury 2022 was brought to a close on Sunday (26 June) by headliner Kendrick Lamar who closed the Pyramid Stage that night.

Lamar’s performance came after the Festival made history with both the youngest-ever headliner in Gen-Z, icon Billie Eilish, and the oldest-ever headline in Sir Paul McCartney, both playing a pandemic-delayed 50th birthday bash for the greatest music festival in the world – three years after the last instalment took place in 2019.

During his historic headline performance, Macca wowed the crowds with a show-stopping setlist which included surprise guest appearances from both Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl as well as American-born star Bruce Springsteen.

Other highlights included Diana Ross commanding a mammoth crowd at her Sunday teatime Legends Slot.

The Motown soul singer treated the crowd to a selection of classics including ‘I’m Coming Out’, ‘Baby Love’, ‘You Can’t Hurry Love’, ‘Stop! In The Name Of Love’ and at the conclusion of ‘Chain Reaction’ pink confetti was launched from the Pyramid Stage.

Elsewhere, on the Saturday of the Festival, we found out Lily Allen was making her way to the Glastonbury site, thanks to an Instagram story she shared that afternoon, for what turned out to be a surprise secret guest appearance with Olivia Rodrigo on the Other Stage.

Other secret sets included performances from Jack White, who played The Park Stage on the Sunday, and George Ezra, who took to the John Peel Stage, earlier that day.

Fast forward to Monday (27 June) the rain started to descend – following defied ominous forecasts of thunderstorms and a yellow weather warning from the Met Office.

Campers started packing up their belongings and leaving the Festival site on a chilly morning. as the Glastonbury clean-up litter picking army was already deep-dug down into work on returning Worthy Farm to its natural clean and rubbish-free status in preparation for the next edition of the Festival.

2022 has been one of the fastest Glastonbury clean-ups of the event’s history, with the first of the cows being spotted back in the fields on Monday, the 4th of July.

DON’T BE FOOLED:

Glastonbury Festival would very much like fans to be aware that there are people out there who will try and sell fake Glastonbury tickets to unsuspecting, willing and innocent potential purchasers.

Although Glasto-veterans who have been going to the Festival for quite some time may recognise these scams for what they are, newcomers to the Festival might not know that tickets are only sold on one site which is: glastonbury.seetickets.com – and any other site claiming to sell tickets for the Festival are not authentic.
