Beady Eye to play secret gig at Glastonbury?
Liam Gallagher tweets time and date of surprise
Earlier today (June 26), The Sun claimed the 'Second Bite Of The Apple' group will play a midday set at the Worthy Farm bash. Now both Beady Eye and frontman Liam Gallagher, who was spotted arriving at the festival earlier today, have almost confirmed the rumours by posting a date and time on Twitter.
Beady Eye tweeted:

Liam Gallagher tweeted:

Gallagher had previously stated that he would never return to play Glastonbury, following Oasis' headline performance in 2004. At the time, he told XFM: "The sound is shit and really quiet. You can hear the crowd talking while you're playing. They don't put any money into the PA and it's just full of fucking idiots."
He added: "Now it's like Bond Street with mud, with loads of celebrities walking around in their boots and umbrellas. I'm not having it."
Beady Eye are currently the bookies second favourite to play a secret show at Glastonbury. The 'BE' group are 5/1 on to surprise Worthy Farm, behind Daft Punk who are the favourites on 6/4. David Bowie is at 6/1 and Queens Of The Stone Age at 10/1.
This year's Glastonbury festival is to be live streamed for the first time with viewers able to watch different stages as the action happens. The BBC will use the latest digital technology to allow viewers to choose from simultaneous live streams from all the major stages and has announced that over 250 hours of footage will be broadcast across the weekend.
