If true – It appears Rage Against the Machine might have just let it slip that they’ll be heading to “Somerset” in 2020…
Following the questionable Rage Against the Machine poster which popped up online allegedly depicting the band’s world tour dates for 2020 – The World of Sound Instagram account has now indicated that the “leaked world tour poster was fake.”
According to a Facebook post by Down South Music News – It appears, that Rage Against the Machine had apparently posted to their Instagram page a now-deleted image of the band’s 2020 World Tour dates, which include “Somerset, UK” for June 27.
The post says that “A valued source just happened to be paying attention during the wee hours of the morning, when the recently verified Instagram account for RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE apparently posted this WORLD TOUR ANNOUNCEMENT. The post was live for less than 4 minutes before they must have realised they jumped the gun and deleted the post. The Instagram account became verified only in the past few weeks where the guys officially announced the first leg of their reunion.” See the original post below.
One thing to keep in mind if and when the American rock band do get confirmed for Glastonbury’s 50 anniversary in 2020, is that, June 27 happens to fall on the Saturday of the Festival, and one could only assume that a band of that magnitude would be set for perhaps headlining the Other Stage – as Glastonbury organiser Emily Eavis did say in a recent interview that 2020 will see “Pyramid-level headliners on the Other Stage” – in other words, Saturday, June 27 will also be the night Paul McCartney takes to the Pyramid Stage.
Meanwhile, 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.
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.
