“I thought we already played Glastonbury!”
Speaking to NME, Metallica's Kirk Hammett said that he thought band already played Galstonbury this year, confusing the festival with a performance in Ireland at the Worthy Farm Festival.
Hammett stated, "It's entertaining to watch the media circus fret over our little band. I've just been kicking back and enjoying it, because frankly, between you, me and all the readers of NME – I thought we already played Glastonbury!"
He added, "I thought we did it with System Of A Down (pictured right) back in 2004 or something. I mistook it for a gig we played in Ireland. But when the initial offer came, I said to our management, 'Glastonbury, we've played it before!'"
The band is set to perform at the Glastonbury Festival on Saturday.
