Strictlys Sir Bruce & The Rolling Stones - At Glastonbury - Now Thats Entertainment ?

Hot on the heels of Sir Bruce's sell out one man show we get the fabulous news that Sir Bruces bandwaggon is ready to roll again for another series of Strictly Come Dancing later this year, now we hear that Sir Bruce and The Rolling Stones are headlining at Glastonbury, it really doesnt get much better than this for Strictly fans especially as we had the lovely Jerry Hall taking part on Strictly last year.

It looks like half of the country will be going camping this year, me included, I hope Sir Bruce will sing along with Mick on 'Brown Sugar' , will you be visiting Glastonbury to see Sir Bruce singing with The Rolling Stones?

He drew the crowds at Hop Farm last year so it’s straight on to Glastonbury this year. Good for Brucie for not letting the grass grow.

Hope it's sunny days ahead and he won’t need to pack any wellies.

Omg! thank you, I didn't know anything about this, I hope Sir Bruce will forgive me, I would have loved to have seen him drawing in the crowds, I'm wishing for sunny days ahead too.

The thought of him pouting and strutting his stuff to "Brown Sugar" alongside Mick Jagger is the stuff of nightmares.

But you did say "headlining" which made me smile.
The only headlining he'll be familiar with these days, is the one above his head in his car.

Just like being there http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AFuw6n5jEjY

… naturally http://www.safeconcerts.com/reviews/...012/review.asp is affectionate towards Sir Brucie of Forsyth so here’s just a snippet from their long review …. “Frankly, it was a highlight of the whole weekend, if not the highlight, and when an 84 year old with 70 years in the business shows some of the other performers with back catalogues as long as your arm how to do it without breaking a sweat or a single top ten hit then it's testament to the skill of Sir Bruce of Forsyth.”

Glastonbury celebrates cheese these days so Brucie should feel right at home - maybe Rolf Harris can let him play with his uke if he turns up as a spectator rather than a performer this year.

'Headlining', for sure, Sir Bruce and The Rolling Stones will probably be the only big superstars there, and the only ones that will be remembered.

Thank you so much, I'm just going to have some pineapple chunks, then I'm going to watch Sir Bruce with the festival audience in the palm of his hand.

The BBC may get to show Brucie perform more than 4 songs, unlike the Stones.

Quoted from your OP:

If he "sings" along with Mick, he'll have to keep up with Mick who pouts and "struts his stuff" in just about all of his songs including in 'Brown Sugar'. As I said the thought of Bruce doing that is the stuff of nightmares.

And "half the country" camping is just a teensey weensy bit of an exaggeration.

Bruce isn't a superstar - he's a cheesy BBC ham. No one outside the UK has heard of him and probably most people under the age of 40 don't have a clue who he is.

If the Stones share a stage with him their reputation will be tainted forever. Maybe they can all be 'bad boys' together?

Geriatric bad boys --- watch out!

You are quite right, there is no end to sir bruces talents, thats why the public love him and look forward to seeing him back on Strictly Come Dancing again this year, everyone I talk to is looking forward to seeing sir bruce back, a singer, dancer and a pianist to name just a few of his entertaining talents.

Of course there's an end to his talents! He sings a bit, hoofs and plays the piano a bit and he did have a pathetic attempt at Gangnam Style. But I haven't seem him do ballet, come up with a scientific breakthrough, grow a prize-winning plant to name just a few of the talents he doesn't have. So there's a definite end to what he can even attempt.

And you still haven't said on any of the Bruce Forsyth threads that you post to what he was like when you went to see him in his one-man show.

Given the sort of mix of the audience you get at these concerts, I'd suggest that Bruce could be in for a rough ride.
Strictly Come Dancing, with a comparatively reserved and a less critical audience, it ain't.

Terry, I know sarcasm is the lowest form of wit, but that is precisely why I used it. I thought it couldn't possibly go over anyone's head then...
Talking = exchanging remarks to and fro. You talk to a lot of people on here, so your idea that everyone would like BF back on strictly is a demonstrable fallacy.

So you haven't gone to Glastonbury in spite of saying you'd be camping there - I quote from you opening message on this thread:
It looks like half of the country will be going camping this year, me included
just as you didn't go to his live one man show.

So that photo I posted of you in message 49 of your "SIR BRUCE IS BACK! - Brucies Bandwagon Rolls On! - Will 'Brucie Bonus' Boost Ratings?" must be of your twin brother then.

Terry in your opening post on this thread you said:

That didn't happen; nor was it likely to happen. Mr Forsyth is not only billed to appear on a different time and different stage but also on a different day (this afternoon sandwiched in the middle of a load of people I've never heard of). Unless he did it at home, there was no chance that Mr Forsyth would sing along with Mick on anything last night.

Given the dire quality of some of the "acts" who seem to display a great affection for themselves, I think Bruce will fit in very well at Glastonbury.

The review of his peeformance this afternoon that I read wasn't exactly glowing. Was considered the same old stuff with some of it not PC in these days.
