The Love Me Do hitmaker also got the crowd to cheer for his home city of Liverpool, as well as his late bandmate John Lennon, to whom he dedicated Here Today to.

The show proves a poignant moment in Paul’s lengthy career, as it also came 55 years to the day since The Beatles reached the largest audience in their history, when they performed on the world’s first global TV broadcast.

Greeting the crowd at the start of the show, Paul said: ‘Oh man, it’s so good to be here. We were supposed to be doing this three years ago! ‘ alluding to his prior booking at the festival, before it was cancelled due to the Covid pandemic.

The performer donned a smart navy blue Nehru jacket for the opening moments of his headline set, but later removed it, telling the crowd it would be his ‘only wardrobe change of the night.’

Along with his show coming 55 years since a historic worldwide performance by The Beatles, Paul also hearkened back to the group’s heyday by performing with his original guitar from his famous stint with the band.

During the show Paul also paid tribute to fellow rock legend Jimi Hendrix with a performance of Wings’ Let Me Roll It, and reflected on the time he spent with the musician when he visited London.

He said: ‘He was a lovely man. One of the greatest tributes he ever paid us was we released Sgt Pepper as a tribute to him and he opened his show with it, he played it really well as a solo… he was really working it, giving it a lot of welly. ‘
