Meanwhile, Pink Floyd legends Roger Waters and Nick Mason previously revealed they are both up for headlining Glastonbury - but not together.

Speaking during a Q&A session, Roger said: "I did Glastonbury once, I think. It was really cold. But there were a lot of people and it seemed very jolly and I liked it. Yeah, I would do it again."

Speaking about his ambition to top the bill on the Pyramid Stage, Nick added: "It would be nice to add it to the list of things. I've never played Glastonbury. It would be fun to do it. I don't think it would be very likely."
