Paul McCartney has announced the US stint of his forthcoming ‘Freshen Up Tour’, following the earlier reveal of dates in Canada, the UK and Europe.
Interestingly, whilst we probably wouldn’t report on this kind of news, the US run concludes a fortnight prior to 2019’s Glastonbury Festival, which McCartney has been heavily rumoured to be headlining.
Back in June, the former member of The Beatles was questioned by Radio 2’s Jo Whiley about a potential return to Worthy Farm, alluding that both his daughters had started an online campaign to get him back onto the Pyramid Stage. Though not denying any discussions with the Eavis family, McCartney replied to Whiley’s question “If you were asked though, what would you say?” with “I’d probably do it!”
Paul’s new album ‘Egypt Station’ lands next Friday, 7th September. If he does indeed take up one of the headline slots, it would be McCartney’s first return to Glastonbury since 2004.
