Rolling Stones Reach Glastonbury Festival Broadcast Deal
According to the BBC, the Stones had originally insisted that only four songs from their 90-minute set could be televised, but festival organizer Michael Eavis told reporters a compromise had been reached.
Eavis, who established the event on his farm in Pilton 43 years ago, said he had also endured protracted negotiations with the group to secure their performance.
"It's taken a long time to get them to come and play," he said. "Everyone wants to see the Stones, basically."
"I think Mick Jagger wanted to play to the people here, rather than a TV show," he added. "They're going to be playing for about an hour for the TV." more on this story
