Sir Paul McCartney is set to virtually reunite with John Lennon at Glastonbury.
The 79-year-old music legend is due to take the stage at the annual music festival at Worthy Farm next week (26.06.22) and will be joined by his former Beatles bandmate – who was shot and killed in 1980 – and Paul is is preparing to stage a “virtual duet” with him as part of a tribute.
A source close to Paul said: “He’s tinkering with the setlist but it looks like he’ll be doing a virtual duet with John Lennon. There’s footage of Lennon singing ‘I’ve Got a Feeling’, from ‘Let It Be ‘, which Paul sets up on the big screen, then turns around and sings to him. John’s voice has been isolated in the footage and it’s beautiful.”
The source went on to explain that the ‘Hey Jude’ hitmaker has dueted with John on recent US tour dates and might also be tempted to perform a John Lennon classic as he brings a Ukrainian flag on the Glastonbury stage in support of the war-torn country.
The insider told the Daily Mail newspaper: “He’s been doing this recently in America and it’s likely he’ll bring this to Glastonbury. Paul may well add ‘Give Peace A Chance’ to his set list, and that he will take the stage for his encore wearing the Ukrainian flag.”
Paul will take to the Pyramid stage as part of the final day of the festival on Sunday (26.06.22) and will join pop star Bille Eilish in the lineup, as well as Motown singer Diana Ross who is expected to take the Legends spot.
