U2 to bring large stage show to Glastonbury?

It was previously believed Irish rock legends U2 would scale down their large live production for their performance at Glastonbury Festival 2011, however new reports suggest this might not be the case.

In an interview with the Daily Star, Glastonbury boss Michael Eavis said; “U2 are excited, especially after they couldn’t come last year. I first tried to book them 35 years ago. They are bringing their own stage with them. We’re having to put a lot of stuff in for them but we’re so happy to have them.

The quotes have been met with scepticism as a full scale claw as the band used for their 360 tour would be impossible to install on the Pyramid Stage and in terms of dates the band first formed in Ireland in 1976 so it’s unlikely Eavis tried to book them to perform that year.

Michael Eavis spoke to Virtual Festivals last week about his plans for the festival this year and one headline performance from Beyonce. Click here to read the interview.
