Roxy Music are rumoured to be playing Glastonbury’s popular legends slot in 2023.

Bryan Ferry and co reunited for a 50th anniversary tour this month, their first in 11 years, and it’s now been claimed the glam rock legends are being eyed for the Sunday tea-time slot at the world-famous music festival in Somerset, England, next summer.

The official eFestivals Twitter page tweeted: ‘I’m hearing that Roxy Music will do the Legends Slot at next year’s Glastonbury.

‘Like all rumours, it might be wrong but I don’t think it is.’

It was also on the eFestivals forum that someone said ‘a very reliable source’ let slip that the Slave to Love hitmakers were chosen for the slot, which has previously seen the likes of Dolly Parton, Kylie Minogue, Barry Gibb and Diana Ross grace the Pyramid Stage.

However, this could put the kibosh on fans hopes that the Spice Girls will take that spot at the event on Worthy Farm next year.

Rumours that the girls could give fans what they really, really want and reunite for Glasto in 2023 were given a boost at this year’s festival by the group’s Mel C.

‘It’s the dream, the absolute dream, we would love to do it [play Glasto],’ she said on BBC Breakfast.

‘The girls and I, we have chatted about it, it’s the biggest stage in the world, we have the best festival in the world right here…

When asked if Victoria, aka Posh Spice, would join them, she exclaimed: ‘I have a good feeling [she would].’

In July, Graham Gouldman claimed 10cc were offered the legends slot.

The I’m Not In Love chart-topper admitted it’s unlikely they’ll make it to Worthy Farm because organisers Emily and Michael Eavis would like the original line-up – also including Kevin Godley, Lol Creme and Eric Stewart – to play the Pyramid Stage.

The 76-year-old star told Daily Mail’s Eden Confidential column: ‘We’ve had an offer to play the legends slot at Glastonbury.

‘But they want the original line-up to reform. I don’t think that’s likely.’

In 2012, 10cc embarked on a 40th-anniversary tour, however the only original member to hit the road was Gouldman.

The touring line-up currently comprises Gouldman, Paul Burgess, Rick Fenn, Keith Hayman and Iain Hornal.

Godley and Creme quit the band in 1976 due to artistic disagreements and became a duo, while Stewart departed in 1995. has contacted reps for Roxy Music for comment.
