Paul McCartney to Play Warm Up Show to Glastonbury for 800 People in UK Village


Paul McCartney is surprising a little English village tomorrow night.

He’s playing a warm up show in Frome, at a place called Cheese & Grain, for 800 people. It’s a warm up for his appearance at the Glastonbury Festival on Saturday.

Tickets are £25 each and limited to two per person.

McCartney was famous back in his early solo days with Wings for doing pop up shows in small UK villages. Wings went around in a van, arrived at pubs, and surprised the patrons.

We are very jealous we’re not in Frome, wherever that is. Let’s hope they film it. Indeed, fans will put it on YouTube.

A spokesperson for the venue, which welcomed Foo Fighters for a surprise gig before they headlined Glastonbury, said tickets were £25 each and limited to two per person who came to buy them.

“In 24 hours time from now Paul McCartney will be performing live, here in Frome, at the Cheese & Grain,” a spokesperson told the local paper in Bristol. “Tickets for this extraordinary experience are available now from our box office in person only and will be available on a strictly first come first served basis. The box office will be open for extended hours this evening until tickets have sold out.”
