Sir Paul to head­line Glas­ton­bury

Manchester Evening News - - NATIONAL -

SIR Paul McCart­ney will head­line the Satur­day night of Glas­ton­bury 2020, it has been con­firmed.

The Bea­tle sparked spec­u­la­tion he would take to the Pyra­mid stage for the fes­ti­val’s 50th an­niver­sary when he tweeted a pic­ture fea­tur­ing Amer­i­can com­poser Philip Glass, Hol­ly­wood star Emma Stone and mu­si­cian Chuck Berry. Their sur­names Glass, Stone and Berry, when said to­gether, are sim­i­lar to Glas­ton­bury.

The news was con­firmed on the fes­ti­val’s Twit­ter page, which said: “We are in­cred­i­bly ex­cited to an­nounce that @ PaulMcCart­ney will head­line the Pyra­mid Stage on the Satur­day night of Glas­ton­bury 2020.”

Sir Paul retweeted the mes­sage, adding: “Hey Glasto – ex­cited to be part of your An­niver­sary cel­e­bra­tions. See ya next sum­mer!”

Or­gan­iser Emily Eavis, daugh­ter of Glas­ton­bury founder Michael Eavis, said on In­sta­gram: “IT’S REAL! So ex­cited. Hav­ing Paul McCart­ney com­ing back to head­line the Pyra­mid next year is an ab­so­lute dream come true. There re­ally was no one that we wanted more for the 50th an­niver­sary.”

Tick­ets for Glas­ton­bury, which is on from June 24 to 28, sold out in just over half an hour in Oc­to­ber.
