Cher has confirmed that she is interested in playing Glastonbury in a new interview with Rylan Clark for BBC Radio 2.

Rylan said: “There are so many rumours, you haven’t done it yet, Glastonbury. Are we ever going to see Cher take on that Legends slot at Glastonbury?” To which Cher replied: “I’d like to!”

A delighted Rylan asked: “Really?!” Cher confirmed again, saying: “Yes!” Rylan continued: “Right, Cher shake my hand. I’m going to go down to Worthy Farm myself. I don’t care what I’ve got to crawl through, believe me there’s a lot on that farm, I’m going to get you that Legends slot.” He asked her if she is “in”, to which she said: “Yeah!”

Last week Cher became the first female artist to achieve a Top 40 hit with new material on the Official Singles Chart across seven consecutive decades thanks to her new hit, DJ Play A Christmas Song. While Cher’s UK chart debut originally came in the form of Sonny & Cher’s chart-topping duet I Got You Babe in 1965, her debut solo single All I Really Want To Do broke the UK Top 40 the same month, and Cher has gone on to chart a solo single of new material in the Top 40 in every decade since.

At 77 years, 7 months old, Cher also becomes the oldest solo female performer to secure a Top 40 on the Official Singles Chart with the lead single from her 27th studio album Christmas.

When asked what made her record a Christmas album, the singer revealed she was originally reticent, “Everyone has done one. So, when my manager called and said, ‘We’d like you to do this,’ my immediate answer was ‘No!’ He said, ‘Just think about it.’ So, I sat down and thought, ‘What can I do that’s different?’… More than anything, I wanted this album to be fun”.
