Sir Bruce Forsyth to play at Glastonbury Festival
Thursday 30 May 2013
Sir Bruce Forsyth is joining the Rolling Stones and Dizzee Rascal by performing at this year's Glastonbury Festival.
The 85-year-old will entertain festival-goers with songs from his solo album These Are My Favourites.
Writing in the Daily Mail, he said the one-man show was "A bit of singing, a bit of dancing, a bit of piano (a lot of people don't know I play piano) and an awful lot of laughter, I hope".
The showbiz veteran might seem an unlikely addition to the line-up, but Glastonbury has a history of unusual acts.
Among the unlikely names to have played the event in Somerset are Welsh rocker Shakin' Stevens, Rolf Harris and Dame Shirley Bassey.
The Wombles played the festival in 2011 - sparking speculation that organisers had made a mistake and were meant to book Liverpudlian indie rockers The Wombats.
