Gorillaz confirmed for Glastonbury headline slot

Gorillaz will play the Friday headline slot on the Pyramid stage at this year’s Glastonbury festival in the UK. The band were drafted in at the 11th hour after U2 were forced to cancel their planned appearance.

“We’re like some great big horrible warship pulling in to the Bay of Glastonbury to save the day. It was us or The Beatles and they split up years ago,” explains Gorillaz main man Murdoc. “The previous soldiers got pulled from duty last minute so it’s up to my Plastic Beach naval cavalry to sail in and sort the battlefield out. I can assure you though, I’m bringing extra troops. Loads of them. Glastonbury will be ours…cutlasses drawn, trumpets ready. We’re coming in…”

Gorillaz Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett are definitely looking forward to the show: “I wasn’t sure how Gorillaz would work in a festival environment but Coachella was amazing. I think Glastonbury will be an unbelievable experience for us…” says Jamie, while Damon adds: “It’s a terrible thing for U2, Glastonbury is magical. Gorillaz will come to life on that stage but we wish Bono all the best.”
