Florence & The Machine Take Over From The Foo Fighters At Glastonbury 2015.
Florence and the Machine will headline the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury this yr, following Foo fighters’ withdrawal from the Friday night time slot. “once we heard… The Foo’s had been forced to pull out, there used to be only one individual we wanted to call and that was Florence,” mentioned organiser Emily Eavis. Florence Welch had already been demonstrated to perform together with her band before Foo opponents on 26 June.
She last played at the Somerset event in 2010. Foo Fighters cancelled their Glastonbury slot and a string of different dates after frontman Dave Grohl fractured his leg in a stage fall in Sweden. Satirically, Welch’s up to date concert events were hampered via her breaking her foot on stage on the Coachella music festival in April. This summer time will mark the 28-12 months-historical’s first efficiency on Glastonbury’s famed primary stage.
“at any time when she has performed right here she’s done something extraordinary and we at all times knew she would headline the Pyramid one day,” said Eavis, who runs Glastonbury along with her father Michael.
“i am delighted she’s agreed to step up to it – she’s going to smash it!”
Kanye West is the headline act on 27 June, and The Who will shut this 12 months’s competition the following night time. Organisers stated revised Pyramid Stage set timings for 26 June could be introduced quickly.
