Paul McCartney to perform at Glastonbury 2022

The final day at Glastonbury offers nice weather and great live music.

While Paul McCartney fans are likely still reeling from his awe-inspiring headline set on Saturday night, there’s plenty for fans to entangle today (Sunday May 26). 6).

George Ezra appeared at the John Peel stage in what may be the worst-kept secret in Glastonbury history, while jazz legend Herbie Hencock delighted the crowd as she relaxed at the Pyramid Stage with a superb performance.

At 4pm it’s time for Diana Ross on Slot Legends, drawing what has to be one of the biggest audiences this teatime show has ever seen. The Supremes icon rotates all the show stoppers, from “I’m coming to theaters” to “You can’t fall in love in a hurry”, “Chain Reaction” and “Reverse”. Unfortunately, some can’t help but complain about her vocals (seriously), prompting many to come to her defense.

Still coming, we have sets by Elbow, McFly, US artist Lorde, Pet Shop Boys and Kendrick Lamar.

Ukrainian band DakhaBrakha began life as a theater project, rooted in a burgeoning avant-garde scene in Kyiv until Putin’s war was put on hold indefinitely. For years, the band has served as representatives of their country’s music and culture, typically with the end of the program chanting: “Stop Putin! No war!” Today, they brought their anti-war message to the world’s largest festival, in a form of victory and defiance.

Visually striking, they stepped out onto the Pyramid Stage, resplendent in towering black sheep’s wool hats, crimson beads and other finesse. The crowd – they were decked out in yellow and blue outfits, floral headdresses and Ukrainian flags – cheered them on.

Despite their traditional folk heritage, DhakaBrakha are as modern as they come. The whole experience is an intense explosion of color; Hypnotic harmonies blend seamlessly with African rhythms and heavy percussion bass lines. Never losing sight of their political message, the band performed footage of the devastation that the war in Russia had ravaged their homeland during the show. When they reached the climax of excitement, the words “Arm Ukraine now” shone behind them. A reminder to all of us of the unifying power of this festival.

Today, on the Pyramid stage, DhakaBrakha has done exactly that. ★★★ ☆☆

Proving that not every 80’s at Glastonbury needs to look as if it vanished in the rain, synthesizer jazz legend Herbie Hancock took to the stage on Sunday afternoon, with a playful performance and easily greeted welcome like a ray of sunshine.

The crowd on the Reclining Pyramid stage, blown by a cool breeze, stretched all the way to the line of tents for the veteran artist. Today, Hancock and his band move away from his electronically inclined Eighties material, choosing instead to turn to jazz-funk tracks such as “Actual Proof”, from the 1974 album To push.

An overview of “Chameleon”, from the classic album Headhunting company folded very early, the bass popping distinctively collapses into a string of elongated solos. Footprints is dedicated to Hancock’s friend, saxophonist Wayne Shorter, 88, who is also the co-founder of Weather Report of jazz-fusion band Seventies.

“Cantaloupe Island,” with its swirling piano chords and glittering trumpet line, comes next, before placing closer “Chameleon” – the entire track this time – on which Hancock will solo the vibrant, rippling keyboard. right on the field. It will be a great Sunday. ★★★★ ☆

Who likes Kendrick?

Much has been said for both the film by Eilish and McCartney – a talented young artist at the start of her career and a veteran artist four times her age – but the stage seems set for K- dot to make this a great movie.

He was one of the top musical artists in the world, at the height of his power.

Possibly electrified. Do not miss:

Paul McCartney’s Johnny Depp video attracts mixed reactions

While the majority appeared to be overwhelmed by Paul McCartney’s headline performance on the Pyramid Stage last night, there was some criticism directed at his filming of the video for “My Valentine,” which featured joined by Hollywood star Johnny Depp.

McCartney included the video on his US tour before Glastonbury, but many on social media expressed their displeasure at seeing Depp on a giant screen at Worthy Farm.

In a comment section for The Independent, My colleague Harriet Williamson writes:

McCartney’s use of the Depp video can only be construed as a public statement of support. That’s a pity, but not a surprise. Men support their friends, even if their partner loses a defamation case in the UK for being described as a “wife beater” – allegations of abuse recognized by the Court. The Royal Court of Justice in London deemed it “really true”. “

Normally I find all the “Paul is dead” plots to sound pretty bad, but this made me chuckle…
