This after Steven Tyler and co had previously seemed to self confirm for playing the upcoming Worthy Farm-held event
In an official announcement posted to their social media channels this evening (31 January), the band said: “It is with deep regret we must announce that our European Tour, scheduled to take place in June and July 2022, has been cancelled.”

The news comes after Steven Tyler and co had previously appeared to let it slip (more than once) that they were scheduled to play the Festival in 2020 and then in 2021 – before it was forced to cancel the coveted event two years in a row due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The supposed self-confirmation came in the form of a “Glastonbury Festival, UK” listing which appeared briefly on the band’s official website tour dates page – before it was swiftly updated to omit the telling “Glastonbury” date. See screenshots below of the before and after.
It now seems unlikely that The Bad Boys from Boston will make an appearance at Glastonbury in 2022, but as always – things might change, and we’ll just have to wait for an official announcement from the Festival on this, if and when it comes.
Ms Ross will be taking to the Pyramid Stage for the Sunday teatime Legends Slot, while Eilish will be playing the same stage on the Friday night – which will subsequently make her the Festival’s youngest ever solo headliner.
The first line-up poster taster for Glastonbury 2022 will probably not be unveiled by the Festival’s officials until February / March (or perhaps even the beginning of April), with the full line-up usually being unveiled towards the end of May.
That being said, there are many artists who confirm themselves prior to the official announcements by divulging the news during interviews, via social media or website listings.
Some of the recent artists to self-confirm for Glastonubry 2022 include Confidence Man, Craig Charles, Black Dyke Band and Monsieur Doumani – while Noel Gallagher said he will be up for playing if asked.

Glastonbury 2022 is set to take place at its natural home in Worthy Farm, Pilton, Somerset, from Wednesday 22nd to Sunday 26th June.
Although tickets for the 2022 Festival have already sold out ahead of the 2020 cancelled event (with deposits paid for the 2020 Festival having rolled over for a second year), there are still ways to go to Glasto this summer.
Some of the opportunities include entering competitions, working at the Festival, volunteering or trying your luck in the spring resales which have yet to be officially confirmed (but will most likely take place sometime around March/April).
Please keep in mind that if and when tickets return to sale in a resale in the spring, you will need to have a festival registration to be able to buy one of these tickets.
