UPDATE: in their emailing to their fan-list, Aerosmith list Glastonbury for Saturday 27th June as part of their 50th anniversary tour.
Around a month ago Aerosmith suddenly appeared in the betting odds as one of the favourites for who's headlining this year's Glastonbury Festival. The favourites-odds suggested some big money had been put on them, and as such an unusual suggestion for headliner it implied that someone thought they knew something. And yet it seemed unlikely. Aerosmith had supposedly played their last UK show at Download Festival in 2017.
Fast forward to today, and Aerosmith have announced a European tour including UK dates in London and Manchester in July, and with the biggest gap in their six-week tour being a week at the end of June.
It might just be co-incidence of course. Then again it might not.
They don't fit with what's been said by Emily Eavis about the other headliners being individuals and not bands. Playing before Paul McCartney on the Saturday seems a good fit, although perhaps they're the 'big' band we were told back in April was arranged for 'the rock slot' in 2020.
Officially confirmed so far for Glastonbury Festival are Paul McCartney, and Diana Ross. For rumours of who might be - but might not be - playing keep your eyes on our Glastonbury Festival 2020 rumours page. The full line-up is expected to be revealed in April, although there may be a small number of acts revealed before then.
Glastonbury Festival 2020 will take place from Wednesday 24th to Sunday 28th June 2020 at Worthy Farm, Pilton, Somerset. Entrance tickets are sold out, although there will be a resale of entrance/coach tickets on Thursday 16th April 2020, and a resale of entrance tickets on Sunday 19th April 2020.
