Dizzee To Replace U2 As Glasto Headliner?
After Bono injures his back…
Monday, May 24, 2010 - 12:11
Dizzee Rascal has reportedly been asked to headline Glastonbury Festival next month if U2 are forced to pull out.
On Friday it was revealed that Bono needed surgery on his back and that their appearance on the Pyramid stage may be in doubt.
The Irish group have already cancelled some US tour dates as the singer gets treatment in Germany.
Now The Sun reports that Dizz’ could take their place top of the bill on Friday June 25. The paper also says that Glasto farmer Michael Eavis has put in a call to Coldplay- who have headlined the event twice before.
Either way Dizzee will definitely be playing at the Somerset festival. He’s currently confirmed as second on the bill below U2.
In related news Professor Green has said he wants Lily Allen to join him on stage at Glastonbury. His new single Just Be Good To Green features the LDN star- who has been going to the festival since she was a kid.
Pro’ told the Daily Star: “"I’m hoping Lily will come out and join me at Glasto but you didn’t hear that from me. It really depends what state she’s in, as I’m performing on the Sunday.”
