“I’m very excited to announce that I will be making my UK Festival debut at Glastonbury this year!” – LR
Glastonbury officially said:
We’re very pleased to announce that soul icon Lionel Richie is the first artist to be confirmed for Glastonbury 2015. He will make his debut UK festival appearance in the Sunday teatime slot on the Pyramid Stage.
Said Emily Eavis: “We are over the moon. We’ve had some amazing performances in the Sunday teatime slot over the years, from Neil Diamond, Shirley Bassey, Paul Simon and many others. And, of course, Dolly Parton played an incredible set this year. So we felt very lucky to get the call from a true Motown legend asking to play next year. He’s got so many amazing songs, to see him perform here on the farm is just going to be wonderful.”
