Gorillaz Confirmed For U2 Glastonbury Slot
After much speculation over the last couple of days (including a tempting story about a Led Zeppelin reformation), the official word is finally through…
Gorillaz will fill the headlining, Friday slot at this year’s Glastonbury.
The slot opened when U2 were forced to pull out due to Bono hurting his back while lifting all of his ‘Services To Musical Humanity And General Wonderfulness’ awards. I’m sure we all wish Bono some sort of recovery so that he can get back to saving the world and giving sunglasses-assembly jobs to small children in developing nations. Go Bono.
Bono’s misfortune, however, is Albarn’s good luck. He and the Gorillaz team will rock Glastonbury instead. They’ve even hinted at some special guests.
