Metallica's Lars Ulrich spills the beans on AC/DC's festival plans
Does Lars Ulrich know something we don't?
The Metallica man has spilled the beans on who he believes will headline the epic Glastonbury festival next year, telling Q magazine he's heard it's AC/DC.
"Can I throw in my first bid for who I think [festival organiser] Michael Eavis has booked for next year? I have heard it might be a band whose lead singer is British, but none of the rest of the band are. Yeah… AC/DC. Come on! Can you imagine that?," exclaimed Lars.
Oh, yes we can, Lars, yes we can! Better start saving for those tickets!
If it were to happen, it would look something like the below. Incredible band to see live.

Only hours after the 2014 Glastonbury Festival came to a close rumours began swirling about next year’s headline acts.
Festival Founder Michael Eavis told a press conference on Sunday morning that a number of bands have already been booked with one act committing during the Metallica set.
The speculation is that the band in question is none other AC/DC who share a manager with Metallica.
Australian gambling company, Sportsbet.com.au have priced up the rockers as $3.00 to headline the event. Good odds?
Festival Organisers are yet to confirm or deny the rumours but they have plenty of time - next years event will take place between June 24 and 28.
Last month AC/DC singer Brian Johnson mentioned on his website than it’s ‘very likely’ they will be on tour before the end of this year.
