Chatting in a new joint Rolling Stone interview, McCartney expressed his desire for the on-stage collaboration, with Swift then revealing that it was her separate hope for the same outcome.
“Wow, it would’ve been so fun to play Glastonbury for the 50th anniversary together,” Swift said, to which McCartney replied: “It would’ve been great, wouldn’t it? And I was going to be asking you to play with me.”
“Were you going to invite me?” Swift said. “I was hoping that you would. I was going to ask you.”
“I would’ve done ‘Shake It Off’,” McCartney revealed, which Swift then said “would have been amazing”.
McCartney, meanwhile, recently announced new solo album ‘McCartney III’, ending the 40-year wait for the completion of his trilogy of self-titled albums.
Glastonbury 2021, meanwhile, is currently set to go ahead, according to the festival’s lawyer. General Counsel Ben Challis said: “For 2021 we will have to start building in March, or the end of March because it’s a big festival and it takes a lot to build, and no one wants to do a ‘light Glastonbury’.
“The plan would be to rebook the 2020 bill, it will move everything, including our 50th-anniversary celebration to 2021”.
