Even though The Who gathered some of the largest crowds ever seen at Glastonbury till date, earlier this month – their set went a little awry, and the reason they state – “sabotage.”

Based on a post on their blog, rumours have been flying about of the alleged sabotaging of the on-stage audio equipment that the band was to use during their headlining set at Glastonbury 2015. Not only did they claim to have been the victims of a sad spiteful deed, but they also mentioned on their blog, that they were a ‘last-minute addition’ to the line-up, owing to Prince’s cancellation.
The author of their blog wrote –
“Not many know that we were a last-months addition to the show, replacing Prince who decided not to come this year.) As we began to prepare our coming changeover, we found someone had sabotaged the carefully-tested audio connections for much of our gear. We’ve never seen that before, but we’re good at plugging things in, so all damage was repaired in time. Was it Mr. Weller or Lionel, no way. Dalai Lama – hmmm…. he did steal the show already. Well, so far…”
Whether true, or not, the audience was clearly not the only displeased when it came to the set, and how it went about, but let’s just say that festivals are spaces where people come to celebrate music, and it is sad, to know that there are possibly some, who are readily able to ruin everyone else’s experiences!
We at The Sherp, know though, that there is still hope!
