Steve Mason Blasts Damon Albarn for Headlining Glastonbury Two Years in a Row


Steve Mason Blasts Damon Albarn for Headlining Glastonbury Two Years in a Row
Although saying that performing at Britain's Glastonbury music festival has been among the highlights of his career so far, Mason was bothered about Albarn dominating the main stage.


Former The Beta band frontman Steve Mason has hit out at Damon Albarn for dominating the main stage at Britain's Glastonbury music festival two years in a row, insisting he should have handed over the opportunity to another group. Albarn and his Gorillaz band stepped in as last minute replacements for U2 when Bono was forced to undergo emergency back surgery.

But Mason has criticized Albarn for accepting the honor to headline last weekend's event after playing on the main stage with his other band, Blur, in 2009. He tells NME, "I couldn't explain to you how little interest I had in whether U2 played or not. I could not care less. The only thing that's bad is that Albarn got to have a headline when he had one last year. He should have given it to someone else."

Albarn recently admitted performing at Glastonbury has been among the highlights of his career so far, saying "For me Glastonbury is the most special festival on earth. I believe that there's magic in the earth there, so I'd never take it for granted."
