Foo Fighters lead singer Dave Grohl weathered the misery of the current airport crisis to finally be on stage with Sir Paul McCartney at Glastonbury on Saturday night.
The American frontman joined Sir Paul, the oldest solo artist to ever head at the festival, in a set of titles that thrilled the crowd.
Introducing the singer, he said: “I have a little surprise for you. My friend from the West Coast of the United States, Dave Grohl.”
After Sir Paul revealed that Dave had flown in specifically for the set, the Foo Fighters hitmaker said: “I started on Wednesday, then the flight was cancelled, back to the airport on Thursday and then after that. the flight got canceled, but I swear I’ll never miss being on stage with you right now.”
The duo continued to perform a medley of songs, including Band On The Run.
As they finished performing together, Sir Paul said: “Love you Dave, thank you to the man we all love. Ladies and gentlemen again – Dave Grohl.”
As if that wasn’t enough, he went on to introduce another surprise guest – Bruce Springsteen.
Stepping onto the stage, Bruce said to him: “Happy birthday Paul, this is 80 years from now.”
After their rehearsal together, Bruce thanked Sir Paul for inviting him to perform.
“You’re kidding, thank you for coming,” Sir Paul said. “These two flew in specifically for this tonight.”
Bruce added: “Can’t miss it.”
It comes after Sir Paul was forced to pause his gig to check on an audience. He paused his tribute to Jimmy Hendricks to make sure a festival-goer was fine.
A source told the Mirror: “The crowd went wild for Paul as soon as he stepped onto the stage.
“He was paying tribute to Jimi Hendrix when he stopped to check on someone in the crowd.”
