The worst-kept secret in U2 world is out. After cancelling
their 2010 appearance due to Bono's back surgery (leaving Edge to perform
with Muse), speculation was rife that they would reschedule for 2011. In October 2010, U2.com dropped a not-so-subtle hint
that U2 would be in the 2011 line-up, but confirmation had not been forthcoming - until now.
U2 have been confirmed
as the Pyramid Stage headliners for the Friday night of this year's festival, 24 June 2011
. This is wedged between two North American concerts - Baltimore on 22 June
and East Lansing on 26 June
Tickets for Glastonbury sold out months ago, unfortunately. If you are really
keen to go, there may be a re-sale of cancelled tickets in the Northern spring. U2.com will understandably not be running a presale for this appearance.
