Even better why not wait until 2021 as that is the official 40th year anniversary?

Highly doubt DM would do anything at all for nostalgic reasons, other than back in 2009 when they told the story on all the talkshows about using the old synths for SotU. Other than that it's widely known, at least among Devotees, that they don't feel appreciated in the UK. They could have performed at Glastonbury during all three previous tours, but didn't happen. Won't happen this time either.

Not gonna happen for loads of reasons. The main two :

- The Band will only put shows on during a touring cycle. They aren't due to play again until 2021, and won't go to the effort for a one off show.

- Glastonbury pays around 20-25% of a standard commercial headline set. Bands don't play Glasto for the money. They'll do for the glory and the ego.

Based on DMs usual album/touring cycle of every 4 years, the next one is due in 2021, so Glasto could potentially be a consideration for them as part of a full tour (not a one-off show) and would coincide with their 40th anniversary. They headlined Isle of Wight Festival 2 years ago, so they do do festivals, although admittedly IoW is not a patch on Glasto.
