Following previous rumours – BBC Radio 2’s Johnnie Walker seems to have confirmed Aerosmith for Glastonbury 2020
Following what seemed like an unintended leak-confirmation by an official mail-out sent to Aerosmith fans last week (December 6), listing the American rock icons as playing “Glastonbury, UK” on June 27 – which just happens to be the Saturday of the Festival.
BBC Radio 2’s Johnnie Walker has now also appeared to have confirmed the American band for Glastonbury 2020 on The Rock Show earlier this evening (December 14) – saying: “Some gig news about Aerosmith […] forgot to tell you, they will be playing at Glastonbury next June – the big 50th-anniversary show. That should be quite something else”.
You can listen to his full Glastonbury statment on BBC Sounds, at the 11:40 time-mark.
Paul McCartney was the first headliner to be announced for the 2020 edition of the Festival and joins Diana Ross who was officially confirmed earlier this year as Glastonbury’s 50-anniversary ‘Legends’ slot performer – while Mike Skinner and Carl Cox are the two latest big-scale artists to self-confirm for the Festival’s 2020 bill thus far.
Despite the fact that the full line-up for Glastonbury 2020 has yet to be released – all tickets for the Festival’s 50th anniversary have now sold out, with General Admission tickets selling out in 33 minutes, following Coach + Ticket Packages which sold out in just 27 minutes.
There are still ways to go to Glastonbury next year, and in addition to being able to volunteer – there will also be a resale of any cancelled tickets in the spring, with coach + ticket packages going up for resale on April 16 – followed by a general admission tickets resale (which don’t include travel) on April 19.
Glastonbury 2020 will take place at Worthy Farm, Pilton, Somerset – from Wednesday 24th to Sunday 28th June.
