U2 have been confirmed as a headlining act at this summer's Glastonbury Festival, making up for the band's cancellation last summer due to Bono's back injury. U2 will play the Pyramid Stage on Friday, June 24. In a statement, The Edge said, "It's more a way of life than a festival. I made it last year to the Friday show -- got to play with Muse, got to hang out, ate a veggie burger and fries, and got to play on the Pyramid Stage. I have to say there is something really special and iconic about that stage. So we're all looking forward to coming back to pick up where I left off. And we're so excited to get to play in front of the world's greatest festival audience." In other U2 news, an early song from their days under the name The Hype will appear on the soundtrack to the film Killing Bono. "Street Mission" was written in 1977 and will be played by the actors portraying The Hype in the movie, which is based on the lives of two musicians who left the band before they morphed into U2. There is no U.S. release scheduled for the film or its soundtrack.
