Paul McCartney wows Glastonbury with Dave Grohl and The Boss – Honolulu, Hawaii

Honolulu, Hawaii 2022-06-26 15:57:00 –

London >> Paul McCartney’s Glastonbury Festival show was delayed by two years. The fans thought it was worth the wait.

The former Beatles removed all stops and invited famous rock’n’roll guest performers for a two-and-a-half-hour concert at a festival in southwest England on Saturday night.

McCartney was scheduled to play Glastonbury in 2020. Both the festival of the year and the 2021 edition were hit by a coronavirus pandemic.

Currently 80 years old, he is the oldest solo headliner in history at the festival.

McCartney and his band have made Beatles classics such as “Get Back,” “Hey Jude,” “Blackbird,” and “Let It Be,” as well as solo hits such as “007 Dying Slave.” We provided songs and new material to a large audience.

Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl performed “So Her Standing There” and “Band on the Run”. Bruce Springsteen and McCartney (Boss and The Beatles) then duet with Springsteen’s “Glory Days” and the early Lennon McCartney song “I Wanna Be Your Man.”

McCartney paid tribute to George Harrison, the Beatles bandmate who died in 2001, by playing “something” written by Harrison.

Thanks to technology, he sang “I’ve Gota Feeling” in a video of John Lennon murdered in 1980.

“I think I’ve probably seen one of the most legendary performances ever,” fan Jake Richardson said after the show.

Actor comedian Steve Coogan, who was also in the crowd, described the experience as “very overwhelming.”

“I don’t think anyone in the world can give people such pure joy,” he told the BBC.

Glastonbury concludes today with a headline set by Kendrick Lamar.

Approximately 200,000 people participate in a four-day festival celebrating the 50th anniversary of Worthy Farm in southwest England.

The 3,000 performers included Billie Eilish, Ziggy Marley, Megan Thee Stallion, Falls, Olivia Rodrigo, Diana Ross, Herbie Hancock and Pet Shop Boys.

Guests also included environmental activist Greta Thunberg, who gave a passionate speech on climate change, and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, who addressed the festival on video on Friday.
