U2 Will Headline Glastonbury

One of the worst kept secrets was finally revealed as it was confirmed that U2 will headline this year’s Glastonbury Festival.  Guitarist The Edge made the official announcement via video at Wednesday night’s NME Awards.

U2 will take the Pyramid stage on Friday, June 24, joining previously announced headliners Coldplay and Beyonce.  The Irish rockers were supposed to perform at the event last year but canceled due to Bono’s back injury.

“It’s more a way of life than a festival,” said Edge in the video.  “I made it last year to the Friday show – got to play with Muse, got to hang out, ate a veggie burger and fries, and got to play on the Pyramid Stage.  I have to say there is something really special and iconic about that stage.  So we’re all looking forward to coming back to pick up where I left off.  And we’re so excited to get to play in front of the world’s greatest festival audience.  We’ll see you there.”

Watch Muse cover U2’s “Where The Streets Have No Name” featuring The Edge at last year’s Glastonbury Festival.
