Bruce Springsteen for Glastonbury

It’s been a long time coming but the announcement that Bruce Springsteen will be headlining Glastonbury is one that has obviously delighted the organisers.

“I’m so pleased that Bruce Springsteen has agreed to come to Worthy Farm for the first time,” said festival chief Michael Eavis. “He’s one of the all-time rock legends and I’m confident that this will be one of our best shows ever. He’s also a Barack Obama supporter, which makes two headliners in a row who’ve backed the new President.”

Emily Eavis meanwhile commented that it was “the icing on the cake of this year’s bill, which I’m sure will take everyone’s breath away when we announce the full details.”

Tickets for this year’s festival have sold out, although a limited number of returns will be sold from 9am on April 5.
