Muse invite Bono to join them onstage at Glastonbury – video

Matt Bellamy also reacts to being voted Hottest Male at Shockwaves NME Awards

Muse‘s Matt Bellamy has said he wants the band to be joined onstage by Bono at their Glastonbury headline set on June 26.

Speaking to NME Radio at last night’s Shockwaves NME Awards, Bellamy said he is thinking about asking the U2 frontman – who headlines Glastonbury the night before Muse on June 25 – if he’ll be sticking around for the whole weekend.

“It should be great,” Bellamy explained. “We’re hoping to do something a bit unusual there. A little collaboration with someone, maybe get Bono to come and sing a song. I’m not sure if he’ll be hanging around for that but I’ll ask him anyway.”

Meanwhile, in a video interview you can watch on the right of your screen, Bellamy and bandmate Dom Howard gave their reaction to being named hottest male and second hottest male at last night’s Shockwaves NME Awards.

The duo revealed that Muse‘s fans had been taking a particular interest in voting for that award, and Bellamy – who won – was ecstatic to have picked up the title over his bandmate.

“That’s fucking brilliant,” he declared, before hailing the band’s “crazy fans” for voting.

“He [Howard] was ahead for ages and I thought he was gonna win, but then I won it. Fucking hell, there you go!”
