It doesn’t look like Paul McCartney is headlining Glastonbury 2019 after all…

Another Day...

The chances of Paul McCartney headlining Glastonbury 2019 now look extremely unlikely after he announced US tour dates for the same weekend.

The Beatles legend was previously among the favourites rumoured to be headlining at Worthy Farm this summer, but now two newly announced shows in America have ruled him out. Sir Paul will be performing at the Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix on June 26, before heading to Las Vegas’ T Mobile Arena on June 29.

Glastonbury 2019 takes place from June 26-30.


Today saw Stereophonics join the rumoured acts to join the line-up, having announced huge outdoor UK gig in the week ahead of Glastonbury and previously declaring that it was “fucking due” that they return to Worthy Farm.

So far, Stormzy has been announced as the first Pyramid Stage headliner, while Janelle Monae has been confirmed to top the bill on the West Holts Stage and Kylie Minogue will take the Sunday afternoon ‘Legends Slot‘.

Other rumoured acts for Glastonbury 2019 include The Cure, Lana Del Rey and Arctic Monkeys. Many fans have been speculating that Lauren Hill may appear, while Mel B has stated that Spice Girls are also “in talks” with the festival.

The main Glastonbury line-up announcement is expected in March, before tickets go on re-sale in April.
