The Who confirmed for Glastonbury Sunday slot

The Who have been confirmed as Glastonbury’s final headliner, playing the Pyramid Stage on Sunday 28 June.

It will be the band’s second appearance at the festival, after making their first appearance in 2007. They are currently touring with their retrospective set, titled ‘The Who Hits 50’.

“It’s great to be ending this part of a 50-year career at the most prestigious and respected music festival in the world,” said lead singer Roger Daltrey. “We’ll do our best to close this year’s event with a bang – unless of course the fireworks get wet.”

The Who will join Foo Fighters and Kanye West at Glasto, who were confirmed earlier as the Friday and Saturday night headliners. Paul Weller will also play the Pyramid Stage in Sunday night’s penultimate slot.
