“He feels really ready to get back on the road in America and then will try to tackle Glasto when he gets back.
“There was some discussion about whether he should continue the shows this year because of the situation with Covid, but he decided that he really wanted to perform.”
McCartney stepped onto the stage of the famous festival that will take place a week after his 80th birthday – making him the oldest person to ever cover the event.
