Coldplay Will Headline Glastonbury for a Record Fourth Time

They announced the news on Twitter this morning

Super Bowl Halftime Show stars and perennial Brit-pop experts Coldplay scored a coup this morning when they were announced as the first headlining band for the 2016 edition of Glastonbury, confirming earlier rumors. Of note: Chris Martin and company will become the first act to headline the festival for a fourth time.

The current list of three-time stars at Glastonbury’s Pyramid Stage is short: Besides Coldplay, it includes Elvis Costello, the Cure, and Van Morrison.

The Glastonbury appearance is said to be the band’s only festival date this summer, but the Head Full of Dreams arena tour includes a four-night run at Wembley Stadium and dates at MetLife Stadium, Soldier Field, and the Rose Bowl.
