Keane are the latest act to join the Glastonbury Festival rumour mill, after their singer vented the band's interest to play
Speaking to the Daily Star newspaper, frontman Tom Chaplin, expressed that the trio were looking to appear
at Worthy Farm for the first time since 2004.
He said: "Glastonbury is such a great thing to take part
in and there is so much to do that I really hope we play it this year. It’s been a long time since we did.
"There are certain slots at festivals that are great to play – like the sun going down. It feels like we have
become a lot more of a festival band.
"We always wanted to play in front of 50,000 people spellbound, and
we felt that we managed to create that magic last year when we were playing festivals around the world."
Glastonbury Festival 2009 will take
place at Worthy Fam, Pilton, Somerset from 24-28 June with Radiohead, Bruce
Springsteen and Blur rumoured to be appearing.
