London, July 3 (IANS) Legendary singer Diana Ross is set to play Glastonbury Festival in 2017 after being forced to pull out this year, according to The Bee Gees’ Barry Gibb.
According to Gibb, the “Endless love” hitmaker — who was expected to perform at the event this year but had to pull out — has already been signed up for a performance next year at the music extravaganza in Somerset, England, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
When asked whether he would be filling the “legend slot” at next year’s event, he said: “Next year it’s Diana Ross. I don’t know where I’m going to fit.”
However, the 69-year-old musician has been asked to appear at the festival for a solo set.
Speaking at the O2 Nordoff-Robbins Silver Clef Awards, he added: “The people there were very kind to me and suggested a show perhaps next year. I would love to return to Glastonbury. But if it’s not next year, it will be the year after, as I’ll be on the road anyway”.
