Yesterday marked the release of Coldplay’s highly anticipated new album, Everyday Life. The group’s worldwide success and acclaim made them an obvious choice for Glastonbury 2020, but Chris Martin has confessed that he has been put off playing the festival due to hurtful tweets.

Chris Martin played at Glastonbury last year and although for many the show was the highlight of their Glastonbury experience, some people tweeted negative reviews following the performance.

Speaking to BBC’s Colin Paterson, Martin said: “I did pop up on stage last year and I loved doing so. Then I saw a tweet afterward which said ‘you can always rely on him to come on in a tracksuit and ruin everything’.

“So I was like you know what, a), I should work on my trousers, and b), I shouldn’t be online and c), maybe just go and watch Glastonbury for a year or so.”

He added that he was “hurt” by the tweet because he “is only human.”

If you don’t want your favorite artists to duck out of headlining your favorite festivals, think before you tweet!
