The late Beatles bandmember will join McCartney virtually for a duet of ‘I’ve Got A Feeling’
Festivities will kick off at Worthy Farm this week, and amongst the many performances will be a set from Beatles alum Paul McCartney. Taking to the Pyramid stage on Saturday 25 June, McCartney will follow a performance from Billie Eilish. He has been hard at work crafting a setlist full of his greatest hits, telling press:
“The audience have paid good money, have brought their mums and dads and do not want to hear my deep cuts.”
A source close to McCartney has hinted that this may not be an entirely solo affair. On his recent US tour, the singer found a way to include former bandmate John Lennon in his set using archival footage.
“He is tinkering around with the setlist but it looks like he will do a virtual duet with John Lennon,” said the source. “There is some footage of Lennon singing ‘I’ve Got A Feeling’, from Let It Be, which Paul puts up on the big screen, and then he turns around and sings to him. John’s vocal has been isolated in the footage and it is stunning.”
McCartney recently celebrated his 80th birthday and will be the festival’s oldest ever solo headliner. Incidentally, Eilish, who headlines the night before, will be its youngest at 20.
