Muse, veterans of the Glastonbury headline stage, have invited superstar Adele to come and join the band onstage during their gig in a bid to help her handle the nerves of headlining at the huge festival for the very first time.
Adele will join Muse and Coldplay on this year’s lineup; this comes after Adele had previously stayed away from festivals all together.
Muse appeared on BBC Radio 1’s Breakfast Show yesterday when singer Matt Bellamy said that walking around the Worthy Farm site helps calm the nerves.
Bellamy told host Nick Grimshaw, “The best thing for her to do would be to come the night before, watch us and come on and sing a song with us. That will take the pressure off; that will be a no pressure moment.
“A lot of people, if they are nervous, they will just lock themselves away and then the first time they see it (the stage) is when they go on and you can really brick it.”
Muse will headline Glastonbury for the third time when they play this year, and Bellamy couldn’t help but give fellow headliners Coldplay a ribbing after seeing the festival’s official poster.
Bellamy said: “I was particularly happy to see the poster, our name was at the top. I sent a picture of the poster to Chris Martin as a joke saying ‘keep writing the hits mate, you might get a headline billing one day’.”
This year’s Glastonbury runs from 22-26th June, and joining main headliners Adele, Coldplay and Muse on the bill for the festival will be Beck, Foals, LCD Soundsystem, Chvrches, James Blake, PJ Harvey, ZZ Top, New Order, Disclosure, Stormzy, and Bring Me The Horizon among many more.
Skepta, Ellie Goulding, The 1975, The Last Shadow Puppets, Grimes, Jake Bugg, Fatboy Slim, Guy Garvey, Madness, Wolf Alice, and Bat For Lashes will also play live across the weekend.
Here comes festival season, so hold on tight.
