Sir Paul to headline Glastonbury
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.
