It's Official! Metallica Confirmed As Final Glastonbury Headliners
Saturday night's special guests are the heavy metal superband!
Rumours began circulating the other week when Glasto organiser Michael Eavis said the final headliners were "one of the biggest-selling bands in the world at the moment" and later The Sun reported that Lars Ulrich et al would headline the festival but haven't been announced yet due to 'contractual reasons'.
Now the cat's official out of the bag Eavis said: "Metallica are one of the most popular bands in the world! And they really are a phenomenal live act. This a band that can sell out stadiums in pretty much every country on the planet."
The band also tweeted: "Worst kept secret in rock and roll is now confirmed... see you at @GlastoFest on June 28th! #MetOnTour"
