Diana Ross Says Playing The Legends Slot At Glastonbury 2020 Is A “Dream Come True”
With a career spanning nearly 60 years, it seems only fitting Glastonbury called upon legendary diva Diana Ross to play the festival’s ‘legends’ slot. Marking its 50th year, the former Supreme is the first act to be confirmed for the 2020 festival.
Ross took to Twitter to share the news that she’ll be playing the festival for the first time. “This is a dream true come true,” she wrote. “To all my fans across the world, this is my tribute to you. Every concert feels like a private party, I can see your eyes and feel your hearts. I’m coming to Glastonbury, with love.”
Last year, the Sunday teatime slot was played by Kylie Minogue, making her Glasto debut 14 years after she cancelled a headline slot in 2005 after being diagnosed with breast cancer. With 3.9 million viewers tuning in, it was the most-watched Glastonbury performance ever on the BBC.
With a string of hits to her name – from I’m Coming Out to Ain’t No Mountain High Enough and Upside Down – the soul singer is sure to set the stage alight.
