Elton John to headline Glastonbury Festival 2019?

The odds of Elton John taking a headline slot at Glastonbury Festival 2019 have been slashed this week after the John Lewis Christmas advert was released.

The advert centers around the British pop legend and has sparked increasing speculation on him taking a slot at the music bash in 2019.

John performs at Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland on both Saturday and Sunday of Glastonbury, leaving Friday the only night he could swoop a headline slot.

Emily Eavis has already hinted that a great British act will take one of the headline slots so could Elton be the one?

Bradley Cooper in talks to perform at Glastonbury Festival 2019

Bradley Cooper has revealed that he is in talks to perform at Glastonbury Festival 2019.

The film star used the Pyramid Stage at the 2017 event to film a scene for his new film A Star is Born. He confirmed that he has travelled to the event every year since, such is his love for the festival.

“I go to Glastonbury every year and I’ve seen so many of my heroes and so the fact that I was up there was very surreal,” he said to music magazine NME.

“Oddly enough, if you have ever been to Glastonbury, you know that feeling of comfort.

“300,000 people, and you feel safe, which is an odd thing, so once I got down stage-centre I actually felt very comfortable, but the road to that was very terrifying.”

Cooper went on to discuss his plans to perform at the Park Stage at the 2019 bash:

“That would be great, and maybe just do six songs. That would be the only thing I would do.

“We wouldn’t announce it, even though I’m talking about it right now, with a microphone in front of my mouth!”

Roy Orbison could perform at Glastonbury Festival 2019 as hologram

Roy Orbison could make an appearance at Glastonbury Festival 2019 – as a hologram.

Orbison passed away in 1988 after suffering a heart attack, but is set to tour the UK as a hologram starting in April.

His son admitted that taking the show to Glastonbury would be “the ultimate”.

“This show would be perfect for that audience,” he said.

“The technology is moving so fast. At first we were told we could only play theatres, so we could control the interplay of the light.

“But now the Orbison hologram can play an outdoor festival, even in daylight, and it will still look good.”
