U2 Cancel Glastonbury Headline Performance
After Bono injures his back…
Tuesday, May 25, 2010 - 12:43
The frontman had surgery this week and has now been told to rest for two months, meaning their hotly anticipated gig on June 25 at the event is off.
In a statement on the festival’s website Bono said: “I'm heartbroken. We really wanted to be there to do something really special - we even wrote a song especially for the Festival.”
Coldplay, Dizzee Rascal or Led Zeppelin have been rumoured as possible replacements for the Friday night slot.
But organiser Michael Eavis has refused to comment on who will fill the gap. He said:
“It was obvious from our telephone conversation that U2 are hugely disappointed. Clearly, they were looking forward to playing the Pyramid Stage as much as we were looking forward to watching them.
“At this point, we have no comment to make about possible replacements for U2's Friday night slot. Instead, we would simply like to send Bono our very best wishes for a full and speedy recovery."
U2 have also cancelled US tour dates.
