Following a harrowing summer of back injury and recovery it seems that U2 and Bono could be back on as the headliners for 2011's Glastonbury.
This June Bono and the band were force to pull out of their first ever appearance at Europe's most famous music festival when Bono suffered a serious back injury which threatened paralysis. Five months on and Bono is fit and ready for action performing around Europe in the "360 Tour".
Good news came this week when a news bulletin was posted on the U2.com page. The message was entitled "Glastonbury 2011?"
On their site the band asked "Will U2 fans finally see 'Glastonbury' at Glasto?" Their tantalizing question referred to "Glastonbury" a song that U2 had created especially for their foiled debut performance at the music festival this year.
Their post continued "Looking at the tour dates - there is a gap in the band's schedule ahead of the East Lansing show on June 26 which would make the Friday night a possibility."
Paul McGuiness, the band's manger, would not confirm that they would fill the headline spot but said "We're certainly excited about our plans for next year. Watch this space."
Glastonbury organizer Michael Eavis teased fans by confirming that all three headline acts were booked but he refused to say who they are. He said "The headliners next year are absolutely fantastic - I can guarantee that. It'll be on a par with this year, and possibly slightly better even."
