Soul icon, 75-year-old Diana Ross, is the first artist to be confirmed for the 2020 Glastonbury Festival, the organisers of the festival have announced.
According to a release on their Twitter handle, which read, “We are delighted to announce that @DianaRoss will play the Sunday legends slot on the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury 2020”.
The Motown star, who first found fame in The Supremes, will play the coveted “legend slot” on Sunday 28 June.
She follows in the footsteps of Dolly Parton, Lionel Richie and Kylie Minogue – whose set this June became the most-watched Glastonbury moment of all time.
Ross, who is celebrating her 75th birthday with a US tour, said playing the festival was “a dream come true”
It will be her first show in the UK since 2008.
That gig, at Petworth Park in Sussex, reportedly ended after 50 minutes when the singer took exception to fans filming the show on their phones.
Assuming she avoids a repeat of that incident, Ross’s Glastonbury set is bound to be a major crowd-pleaser.
