Paul McCartney live: Glastonbury Festival

Paul McCartney headlined the Glastonbury Festival on Saturday 26 June 2004.

It was the former Beatle’s first ever UK festival appearance. He was originally due to play Glastonbury in 2003, but Radiohead had already been booked for the main Saturday night slot on the Pyramid Stage.

McCartney’s 33-song set included tributes to John Lennon, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr, in the form of ‘Here Today’, ‘All Things Must Pass’, and ‘Yellow Submarine’.

McCartney’s band was Paul ‘Wix’ Wickens (vocals, keyboards, guitar, percussion, harmonica), Brian Ray (vocals, guitar, bass), Rusty Anderson (vocals, guitar) and Abe Laboriel Jr (vocals, drums).
