Festival-goers witnessed music history in the making tonight (25 June) after Bruce Springsteen joined Dave Grohl and Paul McCartney on stage at Glastonbury 2022. Check it out:

Sir Paul headed onto the Pyramid Stage for his epic two hour 15 minute set, performing a number of Beatles classics to the crowd.

But nostalgic hits weren't all he had up his sleeve, as he also invited the Foo Fighters frontman to join him for renditions of 'I Saw Her Standing There' and 'Band on the Run'.

And if that weren't enough, McCartney then announced, "We have another surprise for you from the east coast of America, it's Mr Bruce Springsteen."

The crowd went wild the pair performed 'Glory Days' after Grohl left the stage.

Following the track, McCartney then sang 'I Wanna Be Your Man' with the 'Born in the USA' star.

Prior to this, Springsteen said to his pal, "Happy birthday Paul, here’s to 80 more years."

Over on Twitter, fans were absolutely losing it over the double surprise, with one writing: "Tonight I stood in a field and watched ⁦@PaulMcCartney⁩, Dave Grohl and Bruce Springsteen. Not bad for a Saturday night! #Glastonbury2022."

Another said, "Witnessing history here, Sir Paul McCartney with Bruce Springsteen and Dave Grohl. Absolutely unreal."

A third added: "I’ve never experienced whiplash like Paul McCartney bringing on Dave Ghrol and then Bruce Springsteen back to back."

Yep, that was quite the showstopper - but while fans were delighted to see so many rock icons hitting the stage, back at home people were left miffed at not being able to watch the moment live.

Although the BBC has been live streaming from the various stages at Glasto, it was revealed that there would be a one-hour delay to McCartney's set.

When someone tweeted about Springsteen's appearance, one person responded: "Shame it doesn’t coincide with the BBC…Disappointing it’s not being shown live."

"Broadcast is one hour delay from live . I’m listening to it on Radio 1 BBC," wrote a second.

A BBC spokesperson told LADbible: "This year we are delighted to bring audiences our most extensive coverage of Glastonbury to date.

"Paul McCartney’s much anticipated set was broadcast on BBC One at 10.30pm as well as on Radio 2 and will be available on BBC iPlayer and BBC Sounds.

"Due to the complexity of broadcasting an event of this scale and the volume of performances we cover, there is sometimes variation between performances taking place and their transmission."
