Shirley Bassey Set To Play Glasto

by | 28 March 2007

Dame Shirley Bassey will perform to thousands of revellers at this year's Glastonbury festival.

The Welsh singer, famed for hits such as Goldfinger and Diamonds are Forever, will take to the stage on the Sunday of the popular festival, playing on June 24th.

Now 70, she is about to release a new single, The Living Tree, and is still a big draw.

Confirmation that the singer will perform some of her biggest numbers came from organiser Michael Eavis, who told the BBC Damian Rice would also be headlining the acoustic stage alongside The Waterboys.

Eavis was also celebrating news from local authorities at Mendip district council that the festival had been granted its entertainment licence.

The promoter said the event had won a four-year licence in a statement on the official Glastonbury website.

Anticipation for Glastonbury 2007 has steadily grown in recent weeks, with the new registration process in which fans must sign up online in order to be able to apply for tickets  attracting 400,000 people.

Rumours surrounding the line-up have proliferated on the web and elsewhere, with The Killers, The Kaiser Chiefs, The Arctic Monkeys and Kasabian expected to attend.

More than 170,000 people are expected to set up camp on Worthy Farm in the farther reaches of Somerset when the three-day festival begins on June 22nd.

Tickets go on sale on April 1st.
