The organisers want to see the World in Motion one more time at the UK’s biggest festival
A petition has been launched to get former England international John Barnes and comedian Keith Allen onstage with New Order at this year’s Glastonbury Festival.
233 signatures have been collected in support of the pair joining the band so far.
“It’s Euro 2016 this year. England genuinely have a decent squad (debatable). We could win the trophy (also debatable),” reads the petition’s description. “But nevertheless, for the punters in the mud at Glastonbury this year, surely it’ll be brilliant if John Barnes and Keith Allen came on stage to perform with New Order for the Three Lions anthem World in Motion. Let’s make this happen. Should England qualify from the group stage, the performance would go down a storm.”
While the signatures were flying in last night, the rate of support has slowed, so if you want to chant along to what is arguably the best football song ever at Glasto, sign here.
