Rihanna is apparently in talks to headline the Pyramid Stage at this year's Glastonbury Festival
Rihanna is reportedly in talks to headline the Pyramid Stage at this year’s Glastonbury Festival.
It’s thought that Rihanna is being lined up to follow in Beyonce’s footsteps – the singer closed Glastonbury with an amazing show in 2011 – by performing on the Friday night of the festival.
It is unlikely that the star will perform on the Sunday as she is playing her own gig in Zurich, Switzerland that night.
‘She is the perfect choice,’ a source told the Daily Star on Sunday. ‘Beyonce stole the show two years ago and there’s no reason why Rihanna can’t do the same. She’s got a huge back-catalogue and is undoubtedly the biggest female artist around at the moment bar Adele.’
Rihanna has made no secret of her desire to perform at Glastonbury, back in 2011, she told Q magazine: ‘I have heard so many things about what happens there. I love rock music. I love Kings Of Leon and The Prodigy. The music is awesome. I like the more traditional rock bands, too – Aerosmith and Bon Jovi. I think I could rock Glastonbury, no question.’
