Is legendary country star Dolly Parton in line for Glastonbury 2014? A suspicious gap in her UK June touring schedule suggests it could be a possibility.
The 'Jolene' singer would make a wonderful addition to next year's Glastonbury Festival line-up and, although nothing has yet been confirmed, it looks like there's a major gap to fill on her 2014 UK summer tour. The festival is set for June 25th - 29th 2014 with bands playing, as per usual, on the last three days. Although Dolly will be hitting London's O2 Arena on Friday 27th, she has the following weekend free which would certainly open up a Glastonbury opportunity. Exciting stuff! Plus, her fellow country star and 'Islands In The Stream' collaborator Kenny Rogers hit up the Pyramid Stage at this year's event and, after a show like that, there's definitely a fresh demand for country legends.
We are hoping, of course, that Dolly doesn't wind up in any more accidents while hitting her UK tour next year, following yesterday's 'fender bender' which took place in Nashville. She revealed in a statement yesterday (October 21st 2013): 'I was in a fender bender this morning, here in Nashville. But I am all good. Just a little tired and sore, resting at home.'
Her Europe 2014 tour will kick off on June 8th at Liverpool's Echo Arena, with dates currently running through until July 9th. She'll be playing all around the UK and Ireland, Germany, Denmark and Norway.
