ELO to play Glastonbury legends slot

ELO will perform in the traditional ‘legends’ slot at this year’s Glastonbury Festival.

The band will follow the likes of Dolly Parton, Kenny Rogers and Lionel Richie at the iconic music event when they take to the Pyramid stage on June 26 for the teatime slot.

Glastonbury organiser Emily Eavis tweeted: “Yes, ELO are playing this year’s Glastonbury Sunday teatime slot. Can’t wait.”

Mainman Jeff Lynne also confirmed the post on his Facebook page.

ELO released their 14th record in November after Lynne reactivated the name, following a run of successful standalone reunion activities in 2014.The band are set to play a run of sold-out arena shows in the UK this April.

Former news desk member Christina joined the team in late 2015 and although her time working on online rock news was fairly brief, she made a huge impact by contributing close to 1500 stories. Christina also interviewed artists including Deftones frontman Chino Moreno and worked at the Download festival. In late 2016, Christina left rock journalism to pursue a career in current affairs. That's proved to be a massive success and in 2021, she was named Local Weekly Feature Writer of the Year at the Scottish Press Awards.
