U2 heads the Glastonbury festival lineup in England

London, Feb 24 (EFE) .- The Irish rock band U2 will perform at the Glastonbury music festival next summer after falling out of the lineup at the last minute last year due to a back injury group leader, Bono. The quartet confirmed today its participation in the upcoming festival in the town of Somerset, southwest England, which will be one of its main attractions along with Beyonce and Coldplay.

The group will leave the stage "Pyramid" on Friday June 24, announced last night the band's guitarist, The Edge, during the music awards of the magazine NME. " Although the group, known for legendary tracks like "With or Without You" did not act at Glastonbury last summer by the physical problems of Bono, guitarist himself jumped on stage at the festival as guest of the band Muse, who played with the theme "Where the streets have no name." Glastonbury is more a lifestyle than a festival, "said The Edge, which explained how last summer went to the event to" play with Muse, "" shop around " and "eat a veggie burger." The guitarist also praised the festival's main stage, the "Pyramid" tables "iconic and special," he said.

"We really want to go and play to the public the best festival in the world," said The Edge. The chief organizer of Glastonbury, Michael Eavis, said: "After the disappointment of not being able to see U2 last year, twice as exciting is the prospect of hearing this time as a super group that breaks the sound barrier."
