Paul McCartney performs at Glastonbury 2022
Saturday at Glastonbury saw some of the best sets of the weekend so far.
From Joy Crookes making her Worthy Farm debut to returning champions Haim in a glorious, sun-kissed performance on Pyramid Stage, there was a particularly special atmosphere ahead of Sir Paul McCartney’s highly anticipated title.
Other great shows came from Glass Animals, Metronomy, Celeste and Gen-Z pop star Olivia Rodrigo, who stormed the Other Stage with a surprise appearance from Lily Allen. Performing Allen’s 2012 hit “F*** You,” the duo appealed the Supreme Court for overturning Roe vs Wade in the United States.
Taking the Pyramid stage just before Macca, Noel Gallagher and his High Flying Birds played a series of audience-pleasing Oasis hits, prompting critic Mark Beaumont to wonder if the gloves are off completely in his sibling rivalry with his younger brother – and former teammate – Liam.
Then came the time for the man himself, Sir Paul McCartney, who released his superb band and half a century of classic songs, not to mention terrific surprise guests in the form of Bruce Springsteen and the frontman of the Foo Fighters, Dave Grohl. What a night!

Looks like thousands of people walked away from McCartney’s set last night, calling it the best concert they’ve ever seen.
I’m not sure Jess Phillips MP is one of them…

The former Beatle made the gesture as a sign of solidarity with the country amid its ongoing war with Russia.
As McCartney held the Ukrainian flag, he was also flanked by bandmates holding the Union flag and an LGBT+ pride flag.
