A drumroll and a fanfare! Rock Werchter is laying out its reddest carpet to welcome a very special guest. Paul McCartney, the ultimate in rock aristocracy and a name without which the festival history could never be complete. He will be performing on Thursday 30 June. On stage Paul McCartney continues to amaze audiences around the world with his epic sets packed full of classics and hits. The opportunity of watching Paul and his excellent band is not to be missed! Paul McCartney is a living legend. When The Beatles broke up in 1970 – he had already penned a huge collection of the greatest songs of all time. Since then, the tunes have kept on coming and in a variety of different genres. His very first solo album contains the sensational ‘Maybe I’m Amazed’ and just last year he wrote the global hit ‘FourFiveSeconds’ with Rihanna and Kanye West. In the intervening years he’s given the world classics including: ‘Live and Let Die’, ‘Band on the Run’, ‘Coming Up’, ‘Say Say Say’, ‘No More Lonely Nights’ and ‘Dance Tonight’ to name a few. McCartney today remains as relevant as ever and is a truly outstanding performer.
