Take That will not play Glastonbury Festival 2011

Take That have moved to rule out an appearance at Glastonbury Festival 2011.

The band, whose reformation was completed this week with the announcement that Robbie Williams had rejoined, had been rumoured for a slot at the legendary event.

However, the group themselves have denied the claims and will not be adding to their European tour with a Glastonbury appearance.

When asked by Scott Mills on his BBC Radio 1 show about the rumour they might play, Gary Barlow responded, “No we're not.”

Mark Owen voiced doubts about the technicalities of putting on their stage show at a festival. “I love going as a spectator, I've been a few times,” he said. “We have a big production, we have a big show, I don't think we could put our stage in there, I don't think it's possible.

“If we're having a good time we might get on the bus and go down. We can go and take our caravan and watch a few other bands.”

Earlier this week, Take That announced a huge stadium and arena tour set to take place from May to July 2011.

U2, Prince, Coldplay and Beyonce are rumoured for the Glastonbury Festival line-up.
