Over the weekend Eavis posted a photo on Instagram from Madonna’s ‘The Celebration Tour‘, which opened at London’s The O2 on Saturday (October 14). Eavis captioned the image with: “She’s back! Incredible.”
Many Glastonbury fans have commented on Eavis post, suggesting that the festival boss is dropping a huge hint that the Queen of Pop will top the Pyramid Stage next June.
“Well that’s a massive hint…,” commented one Instagram user, while another wrote: “Sunday night slot is looking BOOKED!”
Others supposed that Madonna could instead be booked for the Sunday afternoon Legends slot, which in recent years has seen performances from Diana Ross, Kylie Minogue and Dolly Parton. However, other users argued that Madonna would better suit a main stage headliner slot (“legends… she’d be headlining!”).

Elsewhere, on X, the fan account Glastopia said: “Is Emily giving us a hint?!?! #Madonna #Glastonbury”, while fellow fan page The Glasto Thingy wrote: “Does this mean anything other than she went to see Madonna? Not really, she’s posted pictures from gigs before & the acts haven’t ended up at Glastonbury. But don’t let that stop the speculation!”

Meanwhile, Madonna continues her four-date run at The O2 tomorrow night (October 17), wrapping at the iconic London venue on Wednesday (October 18), before heading to the European mainland for dozens of shows.
She returns to play The O2 on December 5 and 6 before heading out on the North American leg of her tour that extends into 2024.
The singer said during the opening night of the tour on Saturday that she “didn’t think I would make it” after she was admitted to intensive care with a serious bacterial infection over the summer.
