The Beatle is to headline Glastonbury on Saturday night in 2022. Let's take a look at the setlist from the first time he appeared... all the way back in 2004.

Sir Paul McCartney was to have headlined Glastonbury's 50th anniversary in 2020. However, the COVID-19 pandemic caused Glastonbury - and pretty much every other music and sporting event - to have been cancelled.

Now, two years later, it's actually happening. The former Beatle is topping the bill at this year's event, alongside fellow headliners Billie Eilish and Kendrick Lamar.

McCartney has previous form - he headlined Glastonbury 16 years ago. 2004’s festival saw the Beatle play the Pyramid Stage on Saturday night, while Oasis took on Friday and Muse closed the show on Sunday.

It was a massive show - McCartney played the "Glastonburgers" (as he called them) a mammoth 33 songs, including two encores. He kicked off with the Wings classic (and Alan Partridge favourite) Jet and went straight into the Revolver track Got To Get You Into My Life. Nice.

Along the way there were more solo and Wings hits including Band On The Run and James Bond theme Live And Let Die, during which the Pyramid Stage was graced with fireworks that managed to distract fans of Basement Jaxx, who were enjoying the band on the Other Stage.

Paul McCartney’s Glastonbury setlist was chock full of Beatles classics - Eleanor Rigby, Hey Jude, Let It Be, Get Back, Helter Skelter, We Can Work It Out, Penny Lane and tons more.

Macca even paid tribute to his bandmates with the song he wrote in tribute to John Lennon, Here Today, George Harrison’s All Things Must Pass and the Ringo Starr showstopper Yellow Submarine.
