The rock'n'roll legends will join the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra at the two day bash, which takes place at Glastonbury Abbey in Somerset on 8-9 August.  

Organiser Michael Eavis said: "I have listened very carefully to what people have said, and have decided to return the classical evening to the Last Night of the Proms format - full of well known pieces, and culminating with a chance to wave flags to Land of Hope and Glory".  

"It is what people said they wanted, so I am sure they will support the evening in even greater numbers than recently. I did want to have the classical evening on the Saturday, but only the smaller concert orchestra was available, so I decided to hold it on the Sunday because having the full orchestra makes such a difference - they are magnificent. 

"Naturally we will have fountains, lights and fireworks.  It will be a wonderful spectacle!"

Status Quo
will play the opening night (Saturday, 8 August) before the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra perform on the Sunday (9 August).

Tickets are on sale at a discounted Christmas rate of £25 between 18 November and 25 December, before they rise to £30.
