Tame Impala say seeing Adele at Glastonbury will be a ‘religious moment’

Frontman Kevin Parker confirms band will stick around to see British singer's set

Tame Impala frontman Kevin Parker has said that his band are going to stick around to see Adele at Glastonbury later today (Saturday, June 25).

The Aussie band play the festival’s biggest stage, the Pyramid Stage, right before the British star and Parker has described the occasion as a “religious moment”.

“I feel like it’s going to be a religious moment for me,” Parker told BBC News ahead of Adele’s first festival headline appearance. “Even though Adele is a megastar, she’s England’s girl. She’s royalty.”

Adele will follow Muse’s impressive headline performance on the Pyramid Stage last night. Coldplay will then close the festival on Sunday (June 26).


New Order, meanwhile, are topping The Other Stage (22:30pm), while James Blake will headline the West Holts Stage later tonight (22:15pm) and M83 will close The John Peel Stage (22:30pm).

Elsewhere, Fatboy Slim will make a rare appearance on the John Peel Stage (20:30pm), while Kurt Vile will play on The Park Stage (17:00pm) and Art Garfunkel is set to appear on the Acoustic Stage (20:10pm).

Meanwhile, rumours are circulating on-site that Lady Gaga will make an appearance at some point today. Speculation has mounted in the coming days that the pop singer will join Mark Ronson and Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker for their scheduled DJ set on the Hell Stage at Shangri-La (03:00am).
