About

This impromptu concert was a warm-up for the Glastonbury performance scheduled on June 25. It was announced on June 23. The 800 tickets, which could only be purchased at the venue and were available on a strictly first come first served basis at a price of £25, were sold within one hour.

Paul McCartney and his band arrived on stage at 6 pm and performed a trimmed-down version of the recent “Got Back” tour setlist. Olivia Harrison, Judd Apatow, Leslie Mann, Brian Johnson from AC/DC and Olivia Rodrigo were in the audience.


Good evening Frome – why am I getting a feeling we are going to have some fun!

Paul McCartney – After playing “Junior’s Farm”

Here’s a song that we’ve never done live in England until tonight, so it’s a first for Frome.

Paul McCartney – Before playing the “Out Of College” section of “You Never Give Me Your Money”

Ok so there does come a time when we’ve got to go and it coincides with the time you’ve got to go. Most of all we want to thank you for coming along and having a ball with us tonight!

Thank you Frome-anians, we had a good time in here tonight. This was a good idea.

From About | Cheese & Grain (cheeseandgrain.com):

The Cheese and Grain is a not-for-profit, member owned social enterprise and also a registered charity. Its main aim is to promote and boost Frome’s social, cultural and economic life.

The Cheese and Grain has an important role in Frome because we can host meetings, large (with a capacity of 835 standing and 500 seated) and small (up to about 30 people in our mezzanine).

Every year we hold an annual member’s meeting (the Annual General Meeting – the AGM). This is the meeting where the membership elects the Board of Trustees. There’s plenty of time at the AGM to meet other members. […]
