Metallica have defended their Glastonbury headline set, with drummer Lars Ulrich saying that the fact that people are debating the slot means "people still care". Speaking on Radio 1's Rock Show, Ulrich commented: "The fact that everyone's got an opinion I'll take as a good thing because it means that people still care and are still interested and we still have one foot in relevance of some sort."

Metallica have defended their Glastonbury headline set, with drummer Lars Ulrich saying that the fact that people are debating the slot means “people still care”.

Speaking on Radio 1’s Rock Show, Ulrich commented: “The fact that everyone’s got an opinion I’ll take as a good thing because it means that people still care and are still interested and we still have one foot in relevance of some sort.”

He added: “It’s comforting that 33 years into a career you can still mange to stir it up a little bit. Glastonbury is the biggest, greatest festival on this planet and we’re headlining Saturday night. Bring it on. We’re going to show up and have fun but all the hoopla is interesting.”

The most recent band to criticise Metallica over their upcoming show is Mogwai who dismissed them as being “unbelievably bad.” The Scottish band will headline The Park Stage at Glastonbury on the same night (Saturday) Metallica perform on The Pyramid Stage.
