U2 ‘could well be back’ at Glastonbury in 2011

Festival spokesperson says Bono and co are likely to play there eventually

U2 may play at the Glastonbury festival next year after having to cancel their June 25 headline slot for this year, a spokesperson for the event has said.

Gorillaz have replaced U2 on the bill after Bono required emergency back surgery, and now a spokesperson for the festival has told the Irish Post that we shouldn’t be too surprised if they come back next year instead.

“They’ve never played here before and we’re very disappointed they can’t perform,” the spokesperson explained, “but they could well be back next year.”

As well as Gorillaz, Muse and Stevie Wonder are set to play headline slots at the sold-out Somerset event.
