McCartney will perform on Saturday, June 27th, the festival announced today. It marks his second time headlining Glastonbury, following his previous appearance in 2004. At the spry young age of 77, McCartney will also become the oldest musician ever to headline the festival.
Ahead of today’s formal announcement, McCartney teased his appearance with a punny tweet featuring images of Philip Glass, Emma Stone, and Chuck Berry (Glass-Stone-Bury… get it?).
