Kasabian 'will close Glastonbury'

Kasabian are reported to be closing Glastonbury this year

Kasabian will apparently be closing Glastonbury this year, playing the Pyramid Stage's final slot on the Sunday evening.

The band have been booked to follow Dolly Parton at the festival and will be the last act to play this year, according to the Daily Star.

Guitarist Serge Pizzorno has previously said: "One thing I really want to do before all this ends is to headline Glastonbury as we've always had a really incredible time playing there. Hopefully it'll happen.

"The one thing you need to pull off a good Glastonbury headline show is f***ing good tunes, and we've got enough of them to do that."

Kasabian are currently working on new material and will play a homecoming gig at Victoria Park, Leicester, on June 21, shortly before the festival.

Arcade Fire have already been announced as the headline act for the Friday night at Glastonbury.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

A close relationship could reach a rocky patch. Resist the urge to emotionally withdraw from your loved one. Be willing to address the issues that have been pulling you apart. You could hear some painful things about your behaviour. Instead of getting defensive, be open to changing for the sake of your relationship. Think back to a time when someone you loved worked hard to gain your affection and approval. Pattern your attitude after theirs. Being flexible is more important than being right.More
