U2 are to headline 2010 Glastonbury Festival

Irish rock band U2 are to headline next year's Glastonbury Festival on the 40th anniversary of the world's biggest green field arts and music event.

The band are set to appear on June 25, the opening night of the festival for a one-off performance during their tour of the United States.

"The band is really looking forward to it," manager Paul McGuinness said on U2's website.

Glastonbury organiser Michael Eavis said he had been trying for years to persuade the group to perform and was delighted they had agreed to play their first festival since the 1980s.

"The 26-year-old rumour has finally come true," Eavis said on the festival's website.

"At last, the biggest band in the world are going to play the best festival in the world. Nothing could be better for our 40th anniversary party."

The three-day festival, which takes place on Eavis's farm in southwest England and attracts some 150,000 revelers, has already sold out.
Last year, acts included Lady Gaga, Bruce Springsteen and Britpop band Blur.
