Wolf Alice appear to have made it to the UK in the nick of time for their performance at Glastonbury Festival on Friday, hours after being stranded in America.

The rockers have posted a video of themselves on a plane and tagged London’s Heathrow Airport, less than seven hours before they are due to perform on Glasto’s iconic Pyramid stage.

In the early hours of Thursday morning, the band had revealed they were in potential hot water when they tweeted to say they were stuck in Los Angeles due to their flight being cancelled, and begged for a private jet across the pond.

That evening they then told fans they were waiting for a ‘flight to Seattle’ where they could go directly to London.

And it appears that their race against the clock may have paid off as they are now seemingly on UK soil just in time for the gig.

However, they now need to make the 107-mile journey from Heathrow to Worthy Farm in Somerset.

The Don’t Delete the Kisses stars are due to perform at 4.45pm on the main stage at the festival, which will welcome headliners Billie Eilish, Kendrick Lamar and Sir Paul McCartney across the weekend.

On Thursday, they’d sent an SOS message on Twitter, writing from their official account and begging: ‘Has anyone got a private jet in La?’

‘Our flights been cancelled and we need to get to glastonbury not joking.’

The band’s bassist, Theo Ellis, also shared an Instagram story detailing the travel chaos at Los Angeles International Airport.

‘Serious request, everything has been cancelled going out of LAX, we are in desperate need of a flight tonight. Anyone got a private jet?’ he pleaded.

‘Lol but really not. Tryna get to a Pyramid style stage.’

Mercury Prize-winners Wolf Alice, an English alternative rock group, travelled over to the US to support Bleachers at their tour show on Monday, and then Halsey the following night.

However, the band – fronted by Ellie Roswell – aren’t the only acts caught up in a bit of pre-Glastonbury chaos.

The Damned were forced to cancel their performance due to Covid, and the Chemical Brothers and rumoured Glasto performer George Ezra may have to give it a skip for health reasons.

Glastonbury Festival is back for the first time in three years after it was cancelled twice due to the Covid pandemic, with thousands of revellers having made it safey to Worthy Farm despite the rail strike this week.
