Lionel Richie has booked an appearance at Glastonbury 2015. Not only that, he will perform in the iconic Sunday afternoon slot!
Richie perform on the final day of the three-day event. He follows Dolly Parton, who actually drew one of the biggest Glastonbury audiences EVER when she appeared in the same slot at the 2014 festival, according to NME.
Kenny Rogers, Leonard Cohen, Brian Wilson and Paul Simon have all played the Sunday afternoon slot in past years, as well, so Richie is in esteemed company.
"I'm really excited to play Glastonbury next year as it's one of the most iconic festivals in the world," said Richie, per The Guardian. "It has a phenomenal history and the alumni of artists who have previously played is incredible so I'm honored to be joining that club. It will be a really special moment for me and I can't wait to share it with everyone. I can now say 'Yes, I'm playing Glastonbury.'"
