Dave Grohl has joined Paul McCartney on stage at Glastonbury, in his first public performance since the death of Foo Fighters' drummer Taylor Hawkins.

Grohl was given a hero's welcome as he strode onto the Pyramid Stage to duet with McCartney on a gritty garage rock version of I Saw Her Standing There.

"This guy flew in specially to do this," McCartney said.


Saturday's headline performance was one of the most-anticipated Glastonbury sets in years, with diehard fans staking out a front-row place more than 12 hours before the star was due to play.

We were supposed to be doing this three years ago," said McCartney, referring to his Covid-cancelled performance in 2020.

The setlist featured some of rock's most seminal songs, including Love Me Do and Lady Madonna; Wings classics like Band On The Run; and more recent solo material like the rambunctious Come On To Me.

"That is so special for me," said McCartney.

In total, he played 36 songs, their deep-grained familiarity resulting in some awe-inspiring moments of audience participation: "See how they run", or "you got to give the other fella hell" and, of course, "na na na na na na naaaaa..., Hey Jude" - a refrain that rang around the field for a full 4 minutes and 40 seconds.

Other choices felt more personal, like In Spite Of All The Danger by the Quarrymen, his pre-Beatles band with Lennon and Harrison alongside John Lowe and Colin Hanton.

"We know the songs you like," he said, "'cause when we play a Beatles song the place lights up with phones like the galaxy.

Pop star Olivia Rodrigo drew an immense crowd to her early evening set at The Other Stage, with the audience apparently comprising every teenager at the festival.

Also impressive were LA sister act Haim, who prowled the Pyramid Stage like three musical Cleopatras, playing the heart out of songs like Now I'm In It, The Steps and Gasoline.

During their set, bassist and singer Este Haim recalled the band's Glastonbury debut 10 years ago, when she had passed out on stage due to type 1 diabetes.

There was no such issue this time as the band - watched by Stella McCartney, Jude Apatow, Melanie C and Kate Hudson - powered through their percussive, riff-laden singles.

On The Other Stage, former Glastonbury headliners Skunk Anansie gave one of the day's loudest and most raucous performances.

Less fortunate were alt-pop band Easy Life, whose frontman Murray Matravers was dropped onto his head after attempting to crowdsurf at the Pyramid Stage.

Other highlights of the second day included rock upstart Yungblud joining Squeeze songwriter Chris Difford on the acoustic stage for a surprise rendition of Up The Junction

"This is definitely one of my Desert Island Discs," said the singer, who plays his own set on the John Peel stage later
