Other guests lined up for producer's stage show include Kyle Falconer of The View
Mark Ronson will be joined onstage by guests incuding Kevin Parker and Boy George this weekend at Glastonbury.
The producer is set to play a rare live show on Friday evening (June 26), performing between Courteeners and headliners Rudimental on The Other Stage.
Earlier this year Ronson revealed that Tame Impala’s Parker would play live with him over the summer, but did not clarify whether that included the Glastonbury gig. Parker appeared on three tracks from Ronson’s latest album ‘Uptown Special’ (‘Summer Breaking’, ‘Daffodils’, ‘Leaving Los Feliz’), which was released in January and topped the UK Albums Chart.
“I wasn’t going to come to Australia and do shows if Kevin [Parker] couldn’t come do shows with us. He’s such an important part of this record,” Ronson said earlier in the year. “So that’s massive, the fact that we’re going to be able to play ‘Daffodils’, ‘Leaving Los Feliz’, and ‘Summer Breaking’ for the first time.”
Other guests confirmed in an email from Ronson’s PR company to NME include vocalists Daniel Merriweather, Kyle Falconer, MNDR, Theophilus London, Andrew Wyatt and Keyone Starr.
Merriweather sings on Ronson’s version of The Smiths’ ‘Stop Me If You Think You’ve Heard This One Before’ while The View’s Kyle Falconer worked with him on 2010’s ‘The Bike Song’. There is no confirmation as to whether Ronson will be joined by his other collaborators such as Lily Allen or ‘Uptown Funk’ singer Bruno Mars.
‘Uptown Special’ was released in January and features Stevie Wonder, Bruno Mars and Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker, amongst others. Last week, Ronson’s collaboration with Bruno Mars, ‘Uptown Funk’, reached 25 weeks in the US Billboard Hot 100 singles Top Five, equalling the record held by Leann Rimes’ with her 1997 track ‘How Do I Live?’.
Tame Impala release third album ‘Currents’ in July via Fiction, following on from 2012’s ‘Lonerism’ and 2010 debut ‘Innerspeaker’.
Tame Impala will play a handful of UK and Ireland dates later this year. They are as follows:
Electric Picnic Festival (September 4)
End Of The Road Festival (5)
Glasgow Barrowland (8)
Liverpool Olympia (9)
Isle Of Wight Bestival (10)
