Springsteen to headline UK's Glastonbury festival

Organizers say Bruce Springsteen will headline Glastonbury, Britain's leading summer music festival.

Glastonbury chief Michael Eavis says the 59-year-old rocker will play the prestigious Saturday night main-stage slot on June 27. Springsteen is due to play an outdoor concert in London's Hyde Park the next day.

Eavis called The Boss "one of the all-time rock legends."

Glastonbury was founded in 1971 and is held on Eavis' farm in southwest England. It is famous for its eclectic lineup - and the mud that overwhelms the site in rainy years.

Tickets for this year's festival have sold out even though much of the lineup has yet to be announced. Neil Young and Blur are widely reported to be playing.
