Jack O'Connell not 'super excited' about Kanye West headlining Glastonbury

Jack O'Connell isn't "super excited" about seeing Kanye West perform at Glastonbury Festival.

The 'Unbroken' star has admitted he feels as though he has to watch the 'Only One' hitmaker take to the Pyramid Stage tomorrow evening (27.06.15) because he owns two of his albums.

Speaking to BANG Showbiz in the EE Garden at Glastonbury Festival, he said: "Yeah I have to [see Kanye] because I've got his first two albums but I'm not super excited about it."

However, the 24-year-old actor is looking forward to see others take to the stage at Worthy Farm in Somerset.

He added: "I can't wait to see The Who and Fat White Family; they're my new favourite band."

The 38-year-old rapper's appearance at Glastonbury has been surrounded by controversy ever since it was announced he would be headlining the festival's main stage.

An online petition, which called for Kanye to be replaced by a rock band, attracted in excess of 130,000 signatures but the 'Bound 2' hitmaker recently branded it "an insult to music fans all over the world".

Glastonbury organiser Emily Eavis teased an "incredible show" from Kanye, adding: "I think he'll create an incredible show. What he's talking about at the moment is very exciting. I think he's going to take it big."
