Classic Concert: Johnny Cash @ Glastonbury Festival 1994 (video)

Johnny Cash considered his UK appearance at Glastonbury Festival 1994 as one of the great highlights of his musical career. He wrote about the performance in his autobiography and was so moved by his experience at the time, there were tears rolling down his face when he came off stage afterwards, according to the other performers who were there.

The concert:

“I booked Johnny Cash to play at Glastonbury in 1994. He was spellbinding, bloody brilliant,” “That was one of my best bookings of all time. This was when Johnny wasn’t nearly as fashionable as he was after ‘Hurt’. Some of the youngsters thought I’d gone crazy, as they believed I should be booking new stuff all the time. They thought he was just a daft old country singer. But he was so good. I can’t choose one song as my favourite, I’d have a shortlist of 100.”
-Michael Eavis (Glastonbury organiser)
