Lead singer Roger Daltrey said: “It’s great to be ending this part of a 50 year career at the most prestigious and respected music festival in the world. We’ll do our best to close this year’s event with a bang, unless of course the fireworks get wet!”

Glastonbury is not the only festival The Who will be playing at that weekend. On Friday June 26 they will take to the Great Oak Stage in London’s Hyde Park, where they will be joined by the likes of the Kaiser Chiefs, Paul Weller and Johnny Marr.
