Glastonbury Festival Announces New Headliners
The Who are to close Glastonbury Festival 2015.
The legendary rock band will reportedly join Bound 2 rapper Kanye West and the Foo Fighters as headliners of the music festival, which takes place in June.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "The Who booking has been kept quiet because the band are also playing a Hyde Park gig for the British Summer Time festival so the announcement will be made in a few weeks. The band are still one of the best live groups and are currently on their 50th-anniversary tour, so it’s bound to be an amazing show. There’ll also be support from an artist like Paul Weller or Noel Gallagher. It will be a dream night for rock fans."
The Who are already booked to play in Paris, France on the Sunday evening but are said to be keen to rearrange that show so they can perform at Glastonbury.
Meanwhile, other performers at the event include Florence and the Machine, Patti Smith, Alt-J and Rudimental as well as Pharrell Williams and Mary J Blige.
Other confirmed artists include Motorhead, Mavis Staples, Jungle, Deadmau5, FKA twigs, Franz Ferdinand, Sparks, the Moody Blues, Azealia Banks, Alabama Shakes, Paloma Faith, The Chemical Brothers, Clean Bandit and Lionel Richie.
The event is set to take place near Pilton, Somerset, England from June 24 to June 28, 2015.
