Paul McCartney welcomed fellow musical legends Dave Grohl and Bruce Springsteen for guest spots during his concert last night at the Glastonbury Festival. Grohl’s appearance on Saturday in England marked his first time on stage since the tragic death of Taylor Hawkins in March.

“I’ve got a little surprise here for you,” McCartney told the crowd towards the end of his 33-song main set at Worthy Farm in Pilton, England in introducing the Foo Fighters frontman. “My friend, your hero, from the West Coast of America, Dave Grohl!” The pair exchanged hellos before Macca, Grohl and McCartney’s band played “I Saw Her Standing There.” Paul hadn’t performed the Beatles classic since 2019. Dave Grohl traded off lead vocal duties with Macca and played rhythm guitar.

Grohl also contributed to the “Band On The Run” that followed. McCartney explained Dave flew in especially for the guest spot. The Foo Fighters frontman revealed he experienced a number of travel delays but “I swear, I would never miss being right here with you right now.” Dave dueted with Paul on the title track to Wings’ 1973 LP.

Paul wasn’t finished with the surprises as Grohl’s guest spot came just before Bruce Springsteen reprised his recent recent sit-in with Macca in East Rutherford, New Jersey. “From the East Coast of America, New Jersey, Mr. Bruce Springsteen,” McCartney told the crowd before The Boss fronted Paul and his band on “Glory Days.” Bruce also sang the gem from his 1984 album, Born In The U.S.A., in East Rutherford. The same was true of the “I Wanna Be Your Man” that followed.

Both Dave Grohl and Bruce Springsteen returned to help McCartney close his Glastonbury show with “The End” off Abbey Road. Watch video featuring last night’s guest spots below:

At 80-years-old, Paul McCartney was the oldest headliner in Glastonbury history. Macca played a total of 38 songs spanning early Beatles favorites to “Come On To Me” and “Fuh You” from 2018’s Egypt Station. Paul honored his late Beatles bandmates during the concert by performing “Something” in tribute to George Harrison and engaging in a virtual duet with John Lennon on “I’ve Got A Feeling.”

Paul McCartney recently wrapped up his Got Back tour of North America. Glastonbury marked Macca’s last scheduled gig of 2022.
