Mick Jagger has said that he thinks Metallica are going to be “great” when they headline this year’s Glastonbury Festival.

Metallica are the first metal artists to headline Glastonbury in its 44-year history, and will perform on the Saturday night.

“I’ve seen them live and they’re going to be great,” Jagger told The Sun, adding that The Rolling Stones had a “great time” headlining the event.

The Rolling Stones resumed their world tour earlier this week, playing to a sold-out crowd of 23,000 at Oslo’s Telenor Arena, and will now continue with a tour of Europe. Read their setlist for the Oslo show – which included a performance of the rarely played “Can’t Be Seen” from the 1989 album Steel Wheels – here.
