Lionel Richie has been confirmed to play at Glastonbury Festival 2015.
The set will be the first ever UK festival performance of Richie’s career.
Richie said: "I'm really excited to play Glastonbury next year as it's one of the most iconic festivals in the world.
"It has a phenomenal history and the alumni of artists who have previously played is incredible so I'm honoured to be joining that club.
"It will be a really special moment for me and I can't wait to share it with everyone. I can now say 'Yes, I'm playing Glastonbury.'"
Richie will be playing the Sunday afternoon slot, which has previously seen the likes of Kenny Rogers and Paul Simon take to the stage. At the 2014 festival, Dolly Parton took the spot – and was hugely popular.
The ‘Hello’ singer is also set to tour the UK in 2015 with his All The Hits All Night tour.
