The Chemical Brothers have announced that they won’t be DJing at Glastonbury this evening.

They broke the news just hours before their set was meant to start, with one half of the duo still unwell with Covid-19.

Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons issued a statement to apologise to fans, sharing that Tom needs more time to rest and recover after contracting the virus.

They were forced to cancel a gig in Ireland just two days before taking to the stage this week, and it seems Tom is still not fit to DJ.

‘We are very sorry to announce that we won’t be DJing at Arcadia this evening at Glastonbury,’ the pair began in a statement on Twitter.

They continued: ‘We were so excited to be back in the fields and to celebrate the return of the festival, as we were to be playing in Cork on Thursday night. We were hoping that more days of rest would allow Tom to recover from Covid, this hasn’t so far been the case.

Glastonbury returns this week for the first time in two years after pandemic cancellations.

The likes of Sir Paul McCartney, Fleetwood Mac, Kendrick Lamar and Billie Eilish will perform for over 200,000 fans.

It will come as no shock that tickets are sold out.
