And it's only a week after Glastonbury - is Worthy Farm on the cards?

Shania Twain has been confirmed as the latest headliner for BST Hyde Park this summer, joining the likes of Robbie Williams and Stray Kids in playing their own headline shows at the huge outdoor festival.

The country icon will take to the Great Oak stage on July 7, joined by Irish legends The Corrs and a wide line-up that will be announced in the coming months.

Tickets for the show go on sale from Wednesday February 14 from 10AM and you can buy them here.

Rather curiously though, the show comes just one week after Glastonbury – which means that an appearance down on Worthy Farm wouldn’t be the most surprising thing in the world.

It comes after it was confirmed that Stray Kids will headline Hyde Park on Sunday July 14, while Robbie returns on July 6 for his first Hyde Park show since 2019.

Shania Twain said: “I’ve seen so many of my own musical heroes headlining at Hyde Park and have wonderful summer memories there. It is a real privilege to headline my own show this year. It’s going to be a s**t-kicking party!”

Last summer, Shania also spoke to Rolling Stone UK to mark the 25th anniversary of her album Come On Over, which remains the biggest-selling studio album of all time by a solo female artist.

|Well, I was busy, busy, busy in every direction you can imagine. Twelve singles, all the videos and all the emotion that went around it,” she reflected on releasing the record.

“Then I was touring for the first time with my own hits and it was pretty overwhelming. I’m a very energetic person but I didn’t have a moment to sit and celebrate while all these great things happened. I never popped the champagne at the time and now I’m gonna celebrate when I get back to Vegas. It’s the perfect time and that’s why it’s called the Come On Over residency. This is the time to celebrate this amazing album in my life and in my career. It’s a time to celebrate.”
