Lou Reed To Join Gorillaz At Glastonbury
Plus Snoop, Shaun Ryder and Mos Def are expected…
Thursday, June 24, 2010 - 12:27
The Velvet Underground legend appears on Some Kind Of Nature on the Plastic Beach album but has yet to sing live with the group.
Blur man Damon told Radio 4 yesterday: “Lou Reed’s arriving and, fingers crossed, coming straight to rehearsal. And then we watch the game.”
He added: “This morning I woke up and the first thing I felt a wave of anxiety about - is an audience that size going to respond to our songs? I don't know.”
Mos Def, Mark E. Smith, Kano, Bashy, Snoop Dogg and Shaun Ryder are all likely to appear with Gorillaz on the Pyramid stage tomorrow.
The cartoon group stepped in after U2 pulled out of the event when singer Bono injured his back. It’s the second year in a row that Albarn will have headlined the event, after Blur reformed last year and played Glasto.
Farmer and festi’ boss Michael Eavis revealed earlier this month that the collective were the first to offer to fill in for the Irish rockers.
He said: “Funnily enough, Gorillaz got in there first. It sounds like a really interesting thing, and they have the most amazing guests they're going to bring on, who shall remain nameless."
