Rockers U2 have promised they will pull out all the stops when they take to the stage at Glastonbury this summer.

Bass guitar player Adam Clayton told Q magazine that the group's headline performance will be show stopping.

"It’s very un-Glastonbury to have a big production but we will be sneaking a few things in through the back gate which will hopefully make this experience a little more like Glastonbury on steroids," he added.

Clayton told the magazine that Bono and co hope to give fans a mind-blowing experience.

He also hinted that the band will go back to some of their 90s hits.

U2 will take to the Pyramid stage at Glastonbury on Friday June 24th.

Their appearance comes after they had to cancel a performance at last year's event when lead singer Bono suffered a back injury.

It will be the band's first Glastonbury show as a full group.

Other bands appearing at Glastonbury this year include Coldplay and Beyonce, who will be headlining on the Saturday and Sunday respectively.

Elbow, Morrissey, Primal Scream, Kaiser Chiefs, Friendly Fires, Biffy Clyro and The Gaslight Anthem are also among the groups who will be hitting one of the legendary festival's many stages with the musical instruments.
