Dolly Parton Performing At UK's Glastonbury Festival This Weekend


(Undated)  --  Dolly Parton admits she's a little nervous about performing at this weekend's Glastonbury Festival. The country superstar tells Britain's "Radio Times" she's "excited" to be performing but also "a little bit apprehensive," because she's not sure what to expect. Glastonbury will be the 68-year-old singer's UK festival debut. Parton is taking the Legends spot on the main stage schedule, and will perform late Sunday afternoon. She has a 70-minute block between singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran and the British indie rock band The 1975. Dolly's performance also marks the second consecutive year the UK event has tapped a American country superstar for the event. Kenny Rogers was last year's Glastonbury's Legends artist.

Glastonbury is just one stop on the European portion of Dolly's "Blue Smoke" tour. She's performing at London's O2 Arena Friday and Saturday night. Parton will also visit Germany, Denmark, Norway, and Sweden before ending the overseas run at the Moon and Stars Festival in Locarno, Switzerland on July 14th.
