His message suggests that there might be more shows to come.
The Jacksons, Jason Donovan and Pete Waterman’s Hit Factory are also on the bill for Livewire, which takes place at Headland Arena.
Smith and Jazzy Jeff are also rumoured to be performing at this year’s Glastonbury.
The DJ previously told Bang Showbiz, ‘We had interest in Glastonbury last year. Whenever the decision comes down, I’m there.
‘The biggest part of us doing this [reuniting] is the clearing of the schedule. I tour about 180 days out of the year but he makes movies, so it’s more on his side of having to clear a schedule for us to be able to rehearse and go on the road.
‘Sometimes it gets a little hard with him being one of the biggest movie stars in the world to free up his time. He absolutely positively wants to do this. The funny thing is, he made the announcement before he even told me.’
Make it happen, guys.
