U2 have dropped a hint that they will play Glastonbury 2011.

The band, who were supposed to headline the festival this summer but pulled out after frontman Bono injured his back, have been heavily rumoured to play next year.

Although nothing has been confirmed, there is currently a gap in their touring schedule which would allow them to play the June 24-26 festival.

A story on the band’s official website, U2.com, on Friday (October 1) advised fans to buy tickets to the festival, and also featured a quote from manager Paul McGuinness, who said: “We’re certainly excited about our plans for next year. Watch this space!”

Glastonbury 2011 tickets have now sold out.
