The British rock legends, who first played the famed music fest eight years ago, will headline the final day of this year’s sold-out event Sunday, June 28.

“It’s great to be ending this part of a 50-year career at the most prestigious and respected music festival in the world,” says singer Roger Daltrey in a statement. “We’ll do our best to close this year’s event with a bang, unless of course the fireworks get wet!”

Former Jam frontman Paul Weller will perform immediately before The Who. The Glastonbury Festival runs from June 24 to June 28. Check out the full lineup for the event at

Apparently in conjunction with the Glastonbury performance, The Who has changed their plan to play two shows in Paris June 28 and 29, and now has just one concert scheduled in the French capital, on June 30. In addition, the band has moved a July 1 show in Amsterdam to July 2.

As previously reported, The Who postponed three dates on their current North American tour leg this week so that Daltrey can rest swollen vocal cords. The affected shows were to have taken place this past Tuesday in Kansas City, Missouri, this Thursday in St. Louis, and this Saturday in Louisville, Kentucky. Those shows will be rescheduled. The band plans to resume its 50th anniversary trek on Monday in Nashville.
