Various British papers reported the "rumour" that Barry Gibb might be set to join Coldplay to do a Bee Gees medley at Glastonbury.  (According to Barry's mamagement, this is not confirmed.)

As reported before, there was a rumour that Barry might be playing at the legend slot of Glastonbury this year.  The story resurfaced again; this time Barry could be joining Coldplay on the Center Stage of Glastonbury.  New Musical Express (online version dated March 25, 2016) and others mentioned this, but it seems it's The Sun (online version dated March 25,  that started the smoke (or the fire?).

The photo on the right is from a Japanese music magazine, probably "Shinpu Journal," announcing the tour at that time.

Robin was in one of his rare "bearded" states.  And the photo also includes a printed autograph of Geoff Bridgeford who prior to the tour was generally regarded as a new Bee Gee.
