Barry Gibb Join Coldplay To Close Glastonbury

by Roger Wink, VVN Music on June 27, 2016

in News

Coldplay had the headlining set on the last day of Britain’s Glastonbury Festival on Sunday and, as part of their set, they brought out special guest Barry Gibb.

It all started when the band said they would be taking a request from Instagram and Glastonbury founder Michael Eavis came on the big screen. Eavis said that one of the acts that he always wanted to get to the stage but never did was the Bee Gees and asked Coldplay to perform one or two of their songs.

Martin said he would do one better and brought out Barry Gibb who sang To Love Somebody and Stayin’ Alive.
