COLDPLAY TO HEADLINE GLASTONBURY FESTIVAL 2011
Glastonbury Festival organisers have announced their first headliner – Coldplay. The group will be headline the Pyramid Stage on Saturday night.
“Coldplay have played such a major part in the Festival over the last 10 years or so,” said Glastonbury organiser Michael Eavis. “As their popularity grew around the world I was so proud of them. This is the triumphant return of a band that everyone here feels part of. They’re one of the greatest phenomena to grow from these fields.”
This will be the world-conquering group’s first Glastonbury show since their triumphant 2005 performance. In 1999, Coldplay made their Glastonbury debut in the New Bands Tent, weeks after signing their record deal. Just three years later, they made their first appearance as Pyramid Stage headliners, shortly before the release of their Rush Of Blood To The Head album propelled them to global success. We can’t wait to welcome them back again.
Rumours have been rife about who will headline Glastonbury with talk of Beyonce, Prince and the Rolling Stones doing the rounds on the old gossip mill but this is the first headline act to be confirmed by Glastonbury Festival organisers. Last year’s headliners were Muse and Stevie Wonder. Tickets for the festival are now sold out. More info at www.glastonburyfestivals.co.uk
