Paul McCartney


Demarcation

Anyone else there notice the intro video quickly being cut short and restarted after running for 10 minutes when an overlay of a software name and "demo version" appeared over it? Absolutely pissed myself: one of the biggest festivals in the world, one of the biggest acts in the world, and someone rendered the intro video with an unlicensed version of the software then forgot to check it!

Macca himself was great of course but that gave me a chuckle.

Has overtaken Blur as my favourite gig. My 21 year old daughter came with us this year, she's a massive Beatles fan and we both burst in to tears and hugged the second can't buy me love started. I'm welling up now just thinking about it. We were about halfway between the sound desk and the right hand screen, the atmosphere round us was incredible.

What was the drama in the crowd he referred to?

Was just in front of us in the pit - couldn't see exactly but lots of people waving and pointing to someone - sounded like someone passed out. Stewards came in from the pit barrier and was all good I think.

Superb! Up there with when I watched Bowie in 2000.

I hope the whole set is on BBC. Going to get it running though the hi-fi later. 


(as an aside - anyway of recording any of the Glastonbury stuff if you don’t have a video or whatever they’re called today? I have a laptop).

I was wondering if the attention span thing came into it too. People sack it off halfway through because the headliner isn't playing the stuff they're bound to be saving for the last half hour.

I forgave him everything (even Mr Kite, which I can't bear) apart from the inclusion of Fuh You. That's four minutes he could have been spending doing absolutely anything else. Another anecdote, anything.

Same as you with both them songs actually 😆 Some US shows got We can work it out instead of Mr.Kite which I would infinitely have preferred

Search for the get_Iplayer app. A thing of absolute wonder.

Hopefully nothing serious then unlike that ketamine overdose at Adele.

I don't suppose anyone has ever had any joy in getting the recording of the big screens?

I managed to make it on to the big screen a couple of times in Hey Jude (in my SGT Peppers costume). 

Didn't make the cut on BBC so it would be a shame to never see it again!

I saw someone in a light blue peppers costume on someone’s shoulders on the iPlayer coverage. Was that you? 

Nope, I was on my mate's shoulders but I was in a pink costume with the John Lennon glasses on!

Feeling that. Never thought I’d experience that 2009 Blur emotion again but that was spiritual

Is it unfair to say his choice for the set list was appallingly poor ?

Diana Ross showed him how its done with her set list choices.  Extremely good mixture of banger after banger from her past and good choices from her new album.

It was terribly boring for at least an hour and slowly got better.   Most people accept this...

Talk of it being the best headliner ever is just utterly bizzar to me - not even close 😛   How can you produce something so dull for most your set and still be called incredible.  No one else would get away with it.

For context I agree he was amazing for 80, and he is an all time great - but as a show - only the last 45 mins I think was worthy of his stature.

Paul left The Beatles when he was 29 mate. He played for me a near perfect set list from his entire careers back catalog. If you aren’t a real fan of Paul’s post Beatles stuff (51 years of his career) then that’s on you.

I’m not angry at all. Just confused. Why did you expect him to do play a Beatles only set? Just because that’s what you wanted? 

No I fully expected him to do what he did...

But for me that makes him very far off one of the best headliners of all time...

He played a gig for subset of his fans...  Its the sort of thing he did at Anfield a few years back I went too.  It was fine for that as it was "his" gig but headlining the Pyramid you need to adjust I think and just play the classic.  Look at what Diana did.  That lady knows how to work a crowd.

Even some of his Beatles choices had my wife confused - thankfully I know pretty much all his stuff so I could point out what was Beatles to her and what was just the shit that came afterwards 😛 

Sadly she had fallen asleep before it got good after about 2 hours 😛

Even Band on the Run and Maybe I'm Amazed?  That's just odd.

Band on the run is alright (its not very original or dynamic though is it?)..  Maybe I'm Amazed is crap in my humble opinion.
