    Bono and his back are back! U2 will perform at the Glastonbury music festival this year, joining Coldplay and Beyoncé as the main headline acts.

    The band had to cancel their scheduled appearance at one of the world's biggest outdoor music events last year when lead singer Bono injured his back. Bono and his back are back!

    U2 will play the Pyramid stage, which can be seen by tens of thousands of fans standing on a grassy slope, on Friday, June 24th.

    "After the disappointment of U2 being unable to play last year, we're now doubly excited at the prospect of the Friday night supergroup breaking the sound barrier," said Glastonbury organizer Michael Eavis.

    U2 guitarist the Edge also said "It's more a way of life than a festival. I made it last year to the Friday show -- got to play with Muse, got to hang out, ate a veggie burger and fries, and got to play on the Pyramid Stage. I have to say there is something really special and iconic about that stage. So we're all looking forward to coming back to pick up where I left off. And we're so excited to get to play in front of the world's greatest festival audience."

    Are you somehow going to attend Glastonbury?
