 Paul McCartney appears to confirm Glastonbury slot with cryptic tweet

UPDATE: Glastonbury have now officially confirmed Sir Paul will headline the Pyramid Stage on Saturday night. Organiser Emily Eavis said: “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”.

It looks like Sir Paul McCartney has ‘self-confirmed’ his place on the Glastonbury 2020 line-up, with a cryptic tweet shared this morning.

The former Beatle tweeted an image showing Philip Glass, Emma Stone and the late Chuck Berry, from left to right, spelling out Glass, Stone and Berry = Glastonbury. See the tweet for yourself below.

Sir Paul has long been top of the rumours list for the festival’s 50th anniversary next June. In September, he told BBC Radio 2 his kids had been telling him: “It’s time to go back to Glastonbury”.

Sir Paul’s latest solo album ‘Egypt Station‘ was released last year, and earlier in 2019, the 50th-anniversary of the Beatles’ ‘Abbey Road’ album was celebrated.

Wolf Alice and Diana Ross are the only artists officially confirmed for the festival’s line-up, though Mike Skinner and Carl Cox have ‘self-confirmed’. Supergrass are strongly-rumoured after reforming in September to perform at Pilton Party, a ‘thank-you’ event for the local community organised by Glastonbury.

‘Glastonbury 50’, the book commemorating next summer’s 50th-anniversary of Glastonbury Festival, has come third in this week’s Sunday Times Bestseller List for hardback non-fiction books. The book is authored by organisers Michael and Emily Eavis and contains hundreds of photos from the festival and celebrity contributions.

After being released on 31st October, Glastonbury 50 sold an estimated 12,325 copies in the week ahead of entering the Bestseller List. Emily Eavis said: “Wow! Staggered by this. Thanks to everyone who has bought our book – hope you enjoy reading it”.
