Sixties British rockers The Who have been confirmed to headline Sunday's slot at the Glastonbury Festival alongside the Foo Fighters and Kanye West from the 24-28th June, and they've promised to take the crowd on an 'incredible journey'. The Who aren't the only legendary rock band to have played at Glastonbury as legendary rock band The Rolling Stones headlined back in 2011 and pulled in crowds in the thousands. Chances are The Who could pull off the same level of success as well.

The band's hits include 'My Generation,' 'Pinball Wizard,' 'Won't Get Fooled Again,' and 'Who Are You'. The last of which was used on American cop shows CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and CSI: Miami.

Any keen Glastonbury fan who watched with full enthusiasm when the Rolling Stones played back in 2011 will be anxious to see The Who playing. This will be the second time in eight years since 2007 that the band has headlined at Glastonbury, so they'll know what to expect from last time. For fans of The Who, both past and present, this will definitely be one performance you'll want to see before you leave.

Last time they headlined Glastonbury they joined The Killers and Arctic Monkeys. This time round they'll be joined by Kanye West and the Foo Fighters. It's also been reported that they will be joined by veteran rocker Paul Weller, former lead singer of The Jam and Style Council

The Who front man Rodger Daltrey has stated that it'll be an amazing way to go out on a high and bring this part of a fifty year career to an end at the most popular #Music festival ever.

They first performed back in 2007 to a crowd of over 70,000. This year could see a repeat or possible increase in the number of people in the crowd

Festival organisers Emily and Michael Eavis will no doubt be excited about the mass attention they will bring to Glastonbury and are confident they can get repeat success. Who knows they might get even more veteran rockers next time in the coming years.

I, for one, am looking forward to hearing Daltrey on the radio. #Celebrities #Show
