Watch Glastonbury boss Michael Eavis covering Elvis Preseley with a live band

The Worthy Farm head honcho also covered Fleetwood Mac

Glastonbury festival boss Michael Eavis took part in a live performance of his own during a show in Pilton, Somerset by local band The Doghouse.

Eavis took on Elvis Presley‘s 1961 hit ‘Can’t Help Falling In Love With You’, which you can watch below in footage uploaded by the charity Children’s World, of which he is a patron.

According to Somerset Live, he also covered Fleetwood Mac‘s 1961 hit ‘Songbird’, with his voice “loved by the crowd.” You can take a look at his Elvis cover for yourself below.

The Doghouse were playing as part of local venue The Pilton Stage’s fourth ‘Secret Mic Night’, before inviting the Glastonbury founder onstage. The venue teased that Eavis “will return to perform again at a future event.”

It’s not the first time that Eavis has tried his hand at performing. When Coldplay headlined Glastonbury in 2016, Chris Martin introduced him as “the best singer in the world,” before he joined them to cover Frank Sinatra’s ‘My Way’.

When Glastonbury turned 40 in 2010, meanwhile, Eavis joined Stevie Wonder for a joyous rendition of ‘Happy Birthday’.

Meanwhile, with the next edition of Glastonbury just a few months away, it was recently revealed when the final batch of tickets will go on sale.

Those who missed out on tickets in the original sale last year have the chance to attend by purchasing returned coach packages or general admission tickets at the end of next month.

To date, Stormzy has been confirmed as the Friday night headliner, while Kylie takes the Legends slot on Sunday afternoon. Other acts that have been announced include Janelle Monae.

Elsewhere, the team behind Arcadia revealed recently that a vast new show in the sky will debut at this year’s festival.
