Just proves the point to me. You’re Headlining at Glasto on a Saturday night, top spot of the entire festival, should be the crescendo.

We want sing-along festival anthems, how many of those songs had full-on audience participation that brought the house down? Possibly 15-20% or so. Should be more like 40-60% for me in that spot.

Maybe I’m getting old and want to release energy and have a good time when listening to the top slot at a festival. Maybe the era of festival anthem bands have past - certainly seems so from the headliners this year - more’s the pity in my view.

As someone in the crowd. Right in the midst of the heaving crowd, I’d say 80% of his songs were sung like anthems. 
 

The Beatles after all were only 10-12 years of his career. He’s got such a catalogue that he could probably fill any 3 hour set with a certain era of his career. He probably is damned if he does/doesn’t.  He has also been touring so this was the same set he’s been dropping worldwide rather than just one night at Glasto. What you probably didn’t see on TV was just how polished it was, the visuals behind the stage were incredible.

I agree they are all amazing, but not many of them fit the "Paul anthem" category.

And he was always going to do a mix of Beatles, Wings and solo stuff. Swapping out a few for some of your list would have been great though.

Come together was a Beatles track from the Abbey Road album. 
 

I was waiting for Eleanor Rigby, or Lucy in the sky, with diamonds. 
I was wondering if him or Noel Gallagher was going to do I am the Walrus. 
 

Equally I was disappointed with Noel Gallagher not doing The Masterplan. 
 

At the end of the day setlist can’t please everyone as proved by peoples reaction on here and other social media sites.

Yes I know. But it's a John track. Sure Paul could have done it, but why?

Never a truer word spoken. With somebody like McCartney, he could do a 7 hour set and people would still be saying he missed their favourite song.

Lucy in the Sky and I am The Walrus are John tracks. I know he did another John track (For the Benefit of Mr Kite), but that was more as a tribute to Lennon

They were Johns tracks. But they made a pact before famous that all songs will be McCartney, Lennon regardless who done the most if not all the work. So they both own the rights. 
Something (best they done IMO) was George Harrison and he done that one.

Yeah, I meant John vocals. He did Mr Kite for John and Something for George, but he's never likely to fill his set with "their" songs.

Didn’t think that bit through, so I get what you mean now. So probably would have ruined them for me 🤣

I didn’t like the Beatles growing up, my parents played them and Elvis to death. I started appreciating them later in life.

Same. I never disliked the Beatles but it's only over the last few years I've come to appreciate their greatness.

It looks a lot of fun and there's a ton of atmosphere, but Diana Ross really can't sing anymore. 😂

She’s got a hell of a lot of bangers to get through. Voice improved as it’s gone on. But yeah the contrast between her voice and Garvey who’s on next..

Yeah she's got better, but still up and down.

But then, she is 78 (or 47 as she just claimed 😂 ) and is putting on a good show.

Don't think I've had a 'perfect conditions' Glastonbury yet, its either been boiling or torrential rain sometime or another over the weekend. The end of June seems to throw up extremes of weather. Yes the heat was draining, I didn't do half what I wanted that year.

This year must have been as close to perfect weather I can remember?
