After announcing a world tour that will take her through the weekend of Glastonbury 2023, Beyoncé fans have speculated that the global superstar may be in line to headline the festival’s Friday night.
The primary music lineup at Glasto begins on Friday, June 22, and runs through Sunday, June 25. Currently, Beyoncé is only scheduled to perform on the Saturday of the festival in Frankfurt, while Elton John is set to headline on the last night. There has been no word yet on who will be joining them onstage.
In May, Beyoncé will perform five times across the United Kingdom as part of her Renaissance tour. These performances will take place in Cardiff, Edinburgh, Sunderland, and twice at London’s Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Since her Paris date is sandwiched between her Sunderland and London performances, it’s possible that she’ll be able to make it back for a spot at Glasto. Tour dates in the United Kingdom will begin selling tickets on Ticketmaster.com at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, February 7. The same URL also leads to pre-sale information.
Tickets for Glastonbury Festival were initially sold out back in November, however resales of cancelled tickets will occur in a few months, typically after the line-up has been released. In the weeks leading up to the event, there will also be other contests offering free tickets to Glasto.
In 2011, Beyoncé headlined the Sunday night performance on the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury. “I’m still walking on the clouds,” she told Piers Morgan the following day. In a way, I’m still in disbelief. I still can’t believe yesterday was when everything went down.
It’s probably because I’ve seen Glastonbury in pictures, in person, and on TV. Also, only the greatest rock stars ever have ever performed. Plus, it’s the hippest festival ever. My husband played there a few years ago, and it was a wonderful experience. And it was a night unlike any other.
You can thank the mud for that. Simply put, everyone is so stunning. In a word: yes! In this case, style is not the issue. Do not think this is an attempt to appear hip. All the people around here are really chill. That’s why I enjoy it so much. That output has nothing to do with the issue at hand. To have a high number of hits is irrelevant.
Everyone has so much love and admiration for a good performance, and the focus is on wonderful music and everything coming from the heart. In those moments, when I don’t have to worry about anything but singing and dancing with all my heart and knowing that it’s appreciated, I feel the most alive.
On ITV’s Good Morning Britain, she gushed, “It’s so wonderful that I’m the first female resident at Ibiza Rocks. Right now I’m recording my next CD. Everything has been composed; we’re just finishing up the last preparations for release. Oh, and I’m crossing my fingers that this will be the year that people recognize me at Glastonbury.
After months of speculation, Guns N’ Roses’ bassist Duff McKagan appears to have confirmed the band will be performing at Glastonbury on the Pyramid Stage. Bookmakers currently have the banned and Arctic Monkeys as co-favorites for the two remaining headlining slots, with only Elton John officially confirmed.
Emily Eavis, the festival’s organizer, remarked to Metal Hammer in 2021, “We had Napalm Death in 2017, and it doesn’t get much heavier than that!” But don’t you agree that Guns N’ Roses should play here eventually?
Even before the pandemic of that summer prompted the cancellation of nearly all festivals, The Sunday Times reported in January 2020 that “Guns’n’Roses headlining Friday night Glastonbury [is] looking increasingly possible.”
Blur, a legendary Britpop group, had been speculated to appear at this year’s festival, but drummer Dave Rowntree recently remarked, “No one, as far as I know, from Glastonbury has approached us.”
Richie Sambora, a former guitarist for Bon Jovi, recently told the press that the band might perform together at Glastonbury 2023. The 1975 are also widely expected to make an appearance, given the band recently announced tour dates that leave them open throughout the festival’s weekend.
The 1975 have previously performed at Worthy Farm in 2013, 2014, and 2016. Although they have been speculated to perform there every year since, they have not actually appeared on the lineup in the last five years, despite repeated statements from both the band and its crew that they would love to do so.
After announcing plans for a reunion tour next summer, Pulp are widely expected to play Glastonbury 2023, and their itinerary reportedly leaves room for an appearance at the festival. Bookmakers had Pulp at 9/1 odds to headline the legendary Pyramid Stage in September, so they were clear frontrunners from the start.
Meanwhile, in a US TV interview, Victoria Beckham denied rumors that she would be participating in a Spice Girls reunion by saying she would not be making an appearance at Worthy Farm.
“I had so much pleasure being in the Spice Girls,” she said on Watch What Happens Live, “but today, with all that I have got going on with my fashion and my beauty business, four children, I couldn’t commit to that.” respect the females a lot. I get a lot of enjoyment out of belting out Spice Girls tunes at karaoke, but I think I should stop there.
When Arctic Monkeys’ 2018 UK tour sold out in minutes, speculation began that the band had also agreed to perform Glastonbury in 2023. The Sun quotes an unnamed insider saying, “‘Alex Turner and the band are coming back to Glastonbury, and this time their set is going to be much larger and better.
The boys have put pen to paper, so they’ll be back on the Pyramid Stage in June of next year. Doing a hat trick on that platform is a huge accomplishment for them, and it’s something they’ve been working toward for quite some time.
The dates for Glastonbury 2023 are June 21st – June 25th, so mark your calendars! Seats sold out early last December, but there will be a resale of cancelled tickets later this spring.
