Lionel Richie has the best Glastonbury t-shirt


Forget Florence. Can Kanye. Who are The Who? There's only one act that matters at Glastonbury this year, and that's Mr Lionel Brockman Richie.

Following in the footsteps of last year's show-stealing Sunday afternoon performance by Dolly Parton was always going to be a hard task, but if there's one man we'd back, it's Lionel.

And he's started strongly with an amazing tweet last Sunday ahead of the festival's start, posing with his wellies, tent and stove, showing that he's clearly prepared for the muddy realities of the site.

Now, he's stepped up his game even further, with his t-shirt - easily the best piece of merch you'll see all year - which is selling like hotcakes on the site; you can even buy your own here and pretend you were there. It's not quite as puntastic as the 'is it tea you're looking for' mug, but it's still excellent.

Lionel Glasto T-shirt

Surely he could have extended the t-shirt range though? Three Tents a LadyEndless Mud? Hmmm, maybe not.

Get ready for his performance with the unbeatable Gold playlist below and enjoy the unparalleled magnificence of the Hello video below. And remember to take it Easy on the Sunday morning beforehand.
