London (ANI): U2 frontman Bono has said that the band is “delighted and humbled" to play at next year's Glastonbury Festival. The Dublin-based rockers will lead the line-up at the Somerset show from June 25, their first festival gig for more than 25 years. “Everyone in the band is very excited about it," the BBC quoted Bono as saying at the launch of an anti-Aids/HIV campaign.
Asked if he would use the festival to promote the campaign, the singer said: "I think it will just be about the music on that day, and that spirit that seems to take over everybody in that sacred ground."
He added: "We'll certainly be well-rehearsed, we''ll be coming straight from the tour."
