Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl made his first onstage musical appearance since bandmate Taylor Hawkins’ death with frequent collaborator Paul McCartney. The Beatles legend was one of the headliners for the 2022 edition of the Glastonbury Festival, performing at the Worthy Farm venue on Saturday, June 25.
Grohl was introduced just after McCartney played “Get Back,” saying, “This guy flew in specially to do this. We love you.” Grohl replied, “I swear, I would never miss being right here with you, right now.”
Grohl joined McCartney and his band for performances of The Beatles’ “I Saw Her Standing There” and Wings “Band on the Run.” Grohl then exited, with Bruce Springsteen taking center stage with McCartney on Springsteen’s “Glory Days” and “I Wanna Be Your Man.” Both Grohl and Springsteen would later return during the encore finale of “The End.”
