The Who confirmed for Glastonbury 2015: Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend to play Pyramid stage as Sunday night headliners

Paul Weller will take to the stage before the remaining Who members

Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend will perform the closing set at Glastonbury 2015 with Paul Weller as their warm-up act no less.

The final remaining members of The Who were announced as the festivals final headliners after huge speculation – and the news confirms Michael Eavis’ remarks a week ago that the Sunday night acts would be two British artists.

Daltrey said: "It's great to be ending this part of a 50-year career at the most prestigious and respected music festival in the world. We'll do our best to close this year's event with a bang, unless of course the fireworks get wet!"

Glastonbury is not the only festival The Who will be playing at that weekend. On 26 June they will take to the Great Oak Stage in London's Hyde Park.

Their last appearance at Glastonbury was in the same slot in 2007 when they were promoting The Endless Wire. Their 50th anniversary compilation The Who Hits 50 came out last year.

Weller also appeared on the Pyramid stage in 2007 although he performed on Saturday night rather than before The Who on Sunday.

Last year Leicester rock band Kasabian performed the often career-defining Sunday night Pyramid stage set.

This year’s festival will be taking place between 24 – 28 June at Worthy Farm near Pilton with Pharrell Williams, Florence and the Machine and Patti Smith among the lineup.

As usual the festival will provide its audience with an eclectic mix of artists, with RnB singer Mary J Blige and hard rock pioneers Motörhead both making their first appearances at the Somerset dairy farm.
