New York, 2022-06-25 22:31:08. Glastonbury: McCartney joins Springsteen, Grohl on epic show
Glastonbury, England –
Paul McCartney was joined by special guests Bruce Springsteen and Dave Grohl for an epic show in Glastonbury on Saturday night that extended the Beatles’ first show to some of his latest recordings.
The singer-songwriter, who turned 80 a week ago, was the oldest solo ever at Worthy Farm in southwest England, where the festival celebrated its 50th anniversary two years later than planned due to the pandemic.
McCartney’s “Can’t Buy Me Love” opened the audience with songs spanning more than half a century, from Beatles classics to “Come On to Me” from the 2018 album “Egypt Station.”
He was joined by Dave Grohl, head of the Foo Fighters on “I Saw Her Standing There” and “Band on the Run,” where he received a standing ovation from the audience.
After his “friend from the West Coast of America,” McCartney presented another “from the East Coast of America”: Bruce Springsteen. The two played “Glory Days” and “I Wanna Be Your Man”.
McCartney, one of the 20th century’s greatest songwriters with the late John Lennon, paid tribute to his former bandmates on the nearly three-hour show. He played “Something” by George Harrison and performed a hypothetical duet with Lennon on “I Have a Feeling”.
Grohl and Springsteen returned for the final appearance of “The End” from “Abbey Road.”
“Thank you Dave, thank you Bruce, thank you Glastow,” McCartney said before leaving the stage.
The Glastonbury Festival concludes on Sunday with Diana Ross playing the legend on Sunday afternoon and Kendrick Lamar leading the way on the Pyramid stage.
