Sir Paul McCartney states that Glastonbury’s headline set unveiled his intimate Somerset show the night before, reminiscent of the early days of “hot and sweaty.”
He starred in many enthusiastic fans and famous faces, including the late George Harrison’s wife Olivia and pop star Olivia Rodrigo, at the Cheese and Grain Entertainment venue in Fromm, Somerset, on Friday by the 80-year-old former Beatles. ..
The surprise performance precedes Glastonbury on Saturday and makes history as the oldest solo headliner in history at the festival.
Sir Paul wore a light blue collarless shirt and blue jeans with a Hofner base around his neck as he went up to the cheese and grain stage.
After playing Junior’s Farm, the second song on the set, he greeted the audience, “Good evening From-Why do we feel we have a good time!”
The former Beatles played hits such as Getting Better, Golden Slumbers and Out of College. This was the first time this song had been performed live in the UK.
Maybe I’m surprised after delivering his 1970s track. “This brings me back to the early days and it’s hot and sweaty!”
When Sir Paul left the stage, he thanked the crowd. “Thanks to From Anian. I had a good time here tonight. This was a good idea.”
Other celebrities in the crowd of fans included comedian Judd Apatow, his wife and actress Leslie Mann, and AC / DC Brian Johnson.
The surprise gig was announced only on Thursday night, and traffic in the town was disrupted as fans tried to get the coveted ticket.
An aide of the locals who missed the place outside the venue was waiting, hoping for a glimpse of the former Beatles.
Among the waiting crowds was Jane Lamb, a self-proclaimed super fan who brought a Beatles scrapbook made at the age of eight, hoping that Sir Paul would come out after the show and sign.
Frome, a 68-year-old woman, told PA News Agency: I’ve heard people say his voice has disappeared, but I don’t think so. “
Sir Paul follows Foo Fighters and Wolf Alice playing with cheese and grain before Glastonbury’s headline is set.
Sarah McDonald was one of the lucky few who was able to take part in a surprise performance with her family after she first lined up for tickets.
Before the performance, she told PA: “I’m excited to see him. I listen to Paul McCartney all day.”
Jackie, Martin Moss and their grandchildren also tried to catch a glimpse of the singer after missing the ticket.
The couple described the scene of the town’s predicament when people tried to get a ticket:
Jackie also described the cheese and grain venue as “very intimate” and “very ordinary,” but with Emily Eavis, co-sponsor of Glastonbury, as a sponsor, he drives the founding of a big star. I said it seems.
At the event, security staff asked the ticket owner to put the phone in an opaque bag and seal it, so he couldn’t record or take pictures during his surprise performance.
Sir Paul’s set on Saturday will be the second time after the 2004 performance, surpassing the bill for the Glastonbury Pyramid Stage.
Headliners Billie Eilish and Kendrick Lamar will be featured in this year’s music, with Diana Ross filling the Sunday Tea Time Legend slot.
