The “Let It Be” singer was supposed to headline Glastonbury 2020, before it was cancelled due to Covid.

At the grand old age of 80, he is the oldest artist to have ever headlined the festival.

The former Beatles star previously headlined the festival back in 2004 and recalled the experience in his book The Lyrics.

McCartney explained that Glastonbury was a “very special” place.

He added: “Glastonbury is also said to be the place where King Arthur is buried. So, one way or another, it’s a very special place and it has a very definite vibe. There is simply no denying that it has a distinct aura.

“Ever since the 1960s I’ve been interested in constellations, cosmology and cosmic sounds”

McCartney has removed the song Back in the USSR from his setlist, due to the ongoing war in Ukraine, but fans can expect to hear many other of their favourite hits.

When is Sir Paul McCartney playing Glastonbury?
