Paul McCartney\’s co-headlining set at this year’s Glastonbury Festival in Somerset, England, included guest appearances by Bruce Springsteen and Dave Grohl.

Nine days after making a guest appearance at Paul McCartney’s concert at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, Bruce Springsteen did so again June 25 at the Glastonbury Festival in Somerset, England, which McCartney was co-headlining. You can watch a video of the performance, below.

As he did at MetLife Stadium, Springsteen played his own “Glory Days” with backing from McCartney and McCartney’s band, and also played on a cover of The Beatles song, “I Wanna Be Your Man.”

Dave Grohl also performed during the set, joining McCartney for “I Saw Her Standing There” and “Band on the Run.”

After “Glory Days,” McCartney told the crowd that Springsteen, like Grohl, flew in just to perform at the festival with him.

“Couldn’t miss it, man,” Springsteen said.

Springsteen and Grohl both played guitar on the show-closing number, “The End,” as well.

Below are videos with “Glory Days,” ‘Wanna Be Your Man,” “I Saw Her Standing There” and “The End,” and an excerpt from “Band on the Run.”

The spring, United States leg of McCartney’s Got Back Tour ended with the MetLife Stadium concert. He has not yet announced any future touring plans.

McCartney turned 80 on June 18.
