Marking Grohl’s first live appearance since Taylor Hawkins’ passing earlier this year
As if Paul McCartney’s return to Glastonbury wasn’t a big enough deal, the former Beatle brought along two fellow music legends to accompany him on stage during his Saturday night headlining set.
In what marked his first live appearance since the passing of Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins in March, Dave Grohl joined McCartney on stage to perform The Beatles’ “I Saw Her Standing There” and Wings’ “Band on the Run.”
Just minutes later, Bruce Springsteen reunited with McCartney on stage to perform “Glory Days” and “I Wanna Be Your Man.” (The two previously performed the songs together earlier this month during McCartney’s stadium gig in New Jersey.)
McCartney eventually brought both musicians back on stage to help him close the mammoth 38-song, nearly three-hour set with a thrilling rendition of “The End.”
Saturday’s set marked McCartney’s second time headlining Glastonbury, following his inaugural appearance in 2004. In doing so, the 80-year-old became the oldest musician even to headline the festival.
In September, Grohl is set to reunite with the rest of Foo Fighters surviving members for a pair of all-star tribute shows in honor of Hawkins. Next year, Springsteen will reconvene with the E Street Band for a long-awaited world tour.
