Pop star Adele has announced she will headline this year's Glastonbury Festival, which would take place in June.
She revealed the news live on stage at London's O2 Pyramid Stage, where she is in the middle of a six-night residency. The news was later confirmed by Glastonbury on Twitter.
Adele now joins Muse and Coldplay at the top of the bill when the festival takes place in June. Festival organiser Emily Eavis, said it was an honour to have Adele confirmed for this year's Saturday night headline spot.
Adele's latest album, 25, has sold more than 19 million copies worldwide, and is currently number one in the UK albums chart. Earlier this week, the singer teased fans in Manchester that she would "see them at Glastonbury" even she didn't perform.
Last November, Adele told Beats 1 radio that she had been put off playing the festival after watching Kanye West's headline set in 2015.
Online reaction to Adele's booking has largely been positive. This year's Glastonbury festival takes place in Somerset from 22 to 26 June. PJ Harvey and Jess Glynne are the only other confirmed acts on the bill. The festival traditionally waits until the final tranche of tickets have been sold, following the spring resale, before revealing its full line-up.
Adele is a talented and a multiple award winner who recently won big at this year's brits awards.
