ROCK legends The Kinks are making a comeback, The Sun can reveal.
Veteran frontman Ray Davies, 72, revealed plans to perform with his brother Dave, 69, after healing one of the longest feuds in rock n’ roll history.
And the pair intend to get out on the road, hinting at a huge festival date next year.
Speaking to The Sun, Ray said: “Dave and I will definitely work together again. And we want to play live.”
When asked which venue he was plotting a performance, the rocker added: “Maybe The Kinks could play Glastonbury?”
The band, which also included Mick Avory and Pete Quaife, enjoyed huge success in the 1960s and ’70s with hits such as Waterloo Sunset and Lola.
But the brothers have had a series of bust-ups over the years, including one when Ray stamped on Dave’s 50th birthday cake.
They disbanded in 1996 and Dave has since played down reunion talk, saying: “You don’t need to see silly old men in wheelchairs singing You Really Got Me.”
The bickering brothers raised hopes of a reunion in December last year during Dave’s show at Islington Assembly Hall when he was joined on stage by Ray to perform the 1964 No1 classic.
It was the first time they had performed together in 20 years.
Comeback talk soon fizzled out but the success of the West End musical Sunny Afternoon, based on The Kinks hits, has triggered more of an interest.
Ray, who was named Classic Songwriter at the Q Awards on Wednesday, revealed he’s looking at bringing the musical to the States where the band have a huge following.
He said: “We’re talking about taking the show to New York.”
The brothers were close to reforming The Kinks to mark the 40th anniversary of their breakthrough in 2003 but hopes were dashed after Dave suffered a stroke.
A 50th anniversary tour was heavily speculated ten years later, with Dave saying at the time there is a “50/50” chance of it happening.
But after their reunion on stage in North London last year, coupled with the success of the West End Show and the movie biopic You Really Got Me tipped for release in 2017, next year appears to be the best chance yet the band will reform.
