Speculation has skyrocketed following a cryptic Twitter post from Glastonbury founder Michael Eavis earlier today hinting at an unannounced performance from Devon space rockers Muse.
Eavis’ original message referenced both Muse’s 2006 album “Black Holes and Revelations” and their upcoming fifth album, “The Resistance“, recently announced to be released on September 14th of this year.
He said “We have had some resistance from the black holes forming around the Park Stage, hopefully we should have that sorted before you all arrive!”
Currently there are two available special guest slots for the Park Stage across Friday and Saturday and the enigmatic message has incited optimistic hopes from fans across Muse’s forums.
Despite not clarifying a specific artist, co-organiser Emily Eavis did confirm back in May that a special guest band would play The Park Stage. Conversely, a Twitter update from Muse bassist Chris Wolstenholme spoke of how the band were “Off to NY tomorrow for mastering and parties.” yet blissfullymuse at http://board.muse.mu believes “They’re just saying that so theres no hype!”.
The festival is kicked off this Friday with headline appearances from Neil Young, Bloc Party and Animal Collective. Saturday sees Bruce Springsteen, Kasabian and Franz Ferdinand top the bill whilst Blur and The Prodigy are poised for Sundays main event.
