Tabloid reports have claimed that Coldplay will be joined onstage by The Bee Gees’ Barry Gibb during their Glastonbury headline set.
Coldplay will become the first band to have headlined the festival four times, having previously topped the Pyramid Stage in 2002, 2005 and 2011.
Chris Martin recently told NME that headlining Glastonbury is “the closest thing to a homecoming gig” the band have got. “I’d play there every day if we were allowed to,” he added.

they don’t quite show growth they do show
