AUDIO & VIDEO: Paul McCartney to team up with Dave Grohl this weekend.

Paul McCartney is pulling out all the stops this weekend as he headlines his huge hometown gig at Anfield Stadium. It is a celebration of Liverpool as the European Capital of Culture.

  • Click here to hear the latest BBC radio interview from Paul about the concert and some of the surprises planned.

We have been reading several news postings lately that Paul has some unexpected surprises up his sleeve for the really big show. Well, one such surprise is out of the bag. It looks like Paul will be sharing the spotlight for two songs, at least, with the Foo Fighters frontman, Dave Grohl.

We already know that The Foos covered Band on the Run quite adequately, we might add. Maybe we’ll get a repeat performance of the Wings’ classic hit. We’ll have to wait and see. For now, enjoy the Foo Fighter’s rendition of the title track from BOTR. It’s a great rockin’ version. Good to hear.

  • What two songs do you think Paul and Dave will calloborate on at the show?

Let us know your hopes for the duet in the comments below.

Here’s what we’ve read.

Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl is to join Paul McCartney onstage at the former Beatle’s Liverpool gig this weekend (June 1).

The two frontmen will team up at Anfield Stadium gig on Sunday, held as part of the celebrations for Liverpool’s European Capital Of Culture accolade.

It is not yet known which song the two will collaborate on.

Foo Fighters perform at City Of Manchester Stadium the following night (June 2), supported by Manic Street Preachers and The Futureheads.

Grohl’s band then hit London’s Wembley Stadium for two gigs on June 6 and 7.

  1. This is the “Free As a Bird” video. Why was it used with the BOTR song?

  2. Dave Grohl played drums on the “Backbeat” soundtrack.

  3. I am not sure why it’s Free As a Bird, but somehow the song is fitting.

    Someone sent me in the link, but I like it.

  4. I like it too. The movement of the camera through the streets fits the theme of being “on the run”. I recognized it as Free as a Bird too but it can do double duty for this one. Great job by the Foo’s. The beginning is almost dead on to Wings but then it jumps into the grittier sound of the Foo Fighters which suits this song perfectly. I don’t usually like re-makes but this is an exception. Thanks for sharing.
