U2 Expected to Headline 2011 Glastonbury

August 6, 2010, 3:56 am GMT

Organizers of the annual festival are hopeful the band which canceled this year's slot will be back on the main stage next year.

The organizer of Britain's legendary Glastonbury festival has confirmed he's asked Irish rockers U2 to headline next year's event. The band was forced to pull out of its slot at this year's festival after frontman Bono underwent emergency back surgery, with Damon Albarn's Gorillaz stepping in to take U2's place.

Organizer Michael Eavis has now revealed he's invited the band to make its Glastonbury debut in 2011, although he's still waiting to have the offer confirmed. Eavis has also admitted he's booked the two other headline acts for 2011, but refused to name them.

Artists rumored to be in the running to take the top slots at the festival include Lady GaGa and The Rolling Stones.
