But, contrary to newspaper reports, Mr Ziggy Stardust is unlikely to make his first full live appearance for six years at
the Somerset event.
“The Mail Online has posted a piece suggesting that David Bowie is “considering an offer” to appear at next year’s 40th anniversary Glastonbury Festival,” a post on DavidBowie.com reads, “Sadly there is absolutely no substance to this story.”
There may be a little more reasoning behind the ongoing Muse rumour though, with television presenter Jonathan Ross using this Twitter account to fuel gossip.
According to Ross, who had the band perform on his BBC One programme, the Teignmouth group are ‘probably’ going to appear at the festival in 2010.
He Tweeted, “Didn't chat to them on the show, but Matt [Bellamy] told me they are probably doing it."
The social networking site was the chosen medium for Wireless Festival organisers to name their first act as well with Pink set to follow in the footsteps of Kanye West and Basement Jaxx by playing London's Hyde Park in July.
“Stop press - It’s just been announced that @Pink will headlining Wireless 2010 in Hyde Park. Exciting times – roll on the summer,” they Tweeted, but event bosses are yet to announce the exact dates of the festival.
