Obviously this didn't happen as Glasto was cancelled for the year.

Isle of Wight Festival 2010: Paul McCartney
A decent short set, with many Beatles tracks, but some from Wings and beyond too.

Inside Art - Linda McCartney Retrospective
The Walker Art Gallery in Liverpool put on this major feature on the photographer's career, including some family stuff and shots of Paul in Liverpool. Nice to hear her getting some positive response for once.

He's announced a new album, made during lockdown. To be apparently called McCartney III, it follows I (in 1970) and II (in 1980).

Idris Elba meets Paul McCartney
Partly to push the new album (which went to #1), he gave this interview. Idris played a little guitar. Paul talked of his background, how Blackbird was a civil rights anthem, starting on the trumpet, liking horse-riding, his talented father, working with John Lennon and KanYe West. He told anecdotes about Yesterday and Let It Be.

Paul McCartney - Live at the Cavern Club
July 2018, he did well over an hour, a few Beatles, a few from Wings, and a few which I guess were from the new album. He had some good banter with the crowd, and played a few which seemed more obscure than usual.

MTV Unplugged: Paul McCartney
He rocked Limehouse Studios in London in January 1991, starting with Be Bop A Lula and ending with Singing The Blues, and inbetween doing some perhaps less obvious gems like She's A Woman, Here, There and Everywhere and And I Love Her. He also had laughs at the expense of someone who thought he had a song called Blackboard. Good show, though.

He also recently was honoured by the Royal Mail, being the subject of a set of postage stamps:

Many Years From Now, by Barry Miles (1997)
Another thick biography. Barry knew Paul in the late 60s at the Indica bookshop and International Times. He spoke to Paul many times about song-writing, and this book is heavily about the Beatles years, though covers Paul's life in London, the films and how it started to fall apart when Brian Epstein died and John hooked up with new father figures like the Maharishi and the more dubious Magic Alex. Quite a solid read, particularly for those who feel Paul was the best Beatle.

Paul McCartney at the BBC
About 50% longer than these things usually are, given the length of his post-Beatles career to hammer in, and the number of progs he has done to perform on, from Glastonbury to Top Of The Pops. English Tea was about the most up-to-date song here.

He's the latest veteran rocker to turn 80, today, so expect some tribute shows to follow in due course (and he's still on course to headline Glastonbury next weekend)  cheers

In truth, very little happened (certainly compared to the multitudes done for Lennon 80 the other year).

TOTP2: Paul McCartney
10 performances from 1972 to 1980 (well, Coming Up was the video), but with Paul himself telling stories about each song, so some extra value there. He noted that Hi Hi Hi got banned here, so C Moon got promoted instead.

After all that build-up, I find I've missed the show  Sad Dave Grohl and Bruce Springsteen were reportedly guests on his Saturday night headline set too. Pfft
