David Bowie denies he is playing Glastonbury 2010

Newspaper report stated 2000 headliner was 'considering an offer' to play

David Bowie has denied reports he is to play at next year’s Glastonbury.

A report yesterday (November 27) said that Bowie was considering an offer to play the June bash, but the singer has now confirmed through Davidbowie.com that there is “absolutely no substance” in the story.

Under a post titled ‘Rumours and lies and stories they made up…Part 386’, Davidbowie.com states:

“The Mail Online has posted a piece suggesting that David Bowie is “considering an offer” to appear at next year’s 40th anniversary Glastonbury Festival. Sadly, there is absolutely no substance to this story.”

The news comes in the same week that Michael Eavis confirmed that U2 are to headline the Friday night (June 25) of next year’s Glastonbury.

Yesterday, TV host Jonathan Ross Tweeted that Muse’s Matt Bellamy had told him the band are “probably” playing the bash, although this has not yet been confirmed by either Glastonbury or the band themselves.
