|Cave snubs Jackson tribute in favour of Fawcett|
|Friday, 10 July 2009|
Goth-rocker Nick Cave stunned revellers at Britain's Glastonbury music festival on Sunday (28 Jun 2009) after he failed to pay tribute to fellow musician Michael Jackson - choosing to dedicate his set to late Charlie's Angels star Farrah Fawcett instead. Hollywood was mourning the death of the blonde siren on Thursday (25 Jun 2009) after she slipped away following a lengthy battle with anal cancer. But news of her death was quickly overtaken by the sudden passing of pop superstar Michael Jackson, who died from a cardiac arrest just hours after the actress. As the shocking reports reverberated across the globe, Glastonbury organisers insisted the weekend music bash would be dedicated to Jackson. But there was one rocker at the event who failed to remember the pop icon - Nick Cave confused the crowd at his set by paying tribute to Fawcett, and totally forgetting to mention the Thriller hitmaker.
As he took the mic on Glastonbury's Pyramid Stage, he told fans, "We'd like to dedicate this set to the late, great... Farrah Fawcett." [www.contactmusic.com]
