Paul McCartney's surprise Glastonbury warm-up gig is instant sell-out

The Beatles legend, 80, will perform at the famous Somerset music event on Saturday but will be taking to the stage at the less illustrious not-for-profit Cheese and Grain venue in nearby Frome at 5 pm local time on Friday. After venue chiefs advertised the concert on Thursday, tickets, which cost $30 (£25), sold out in under an hour. They wrote that lucky fans who managed to bag a ticket can expect "an amazing treat" and added, "We are told this won't be his normal set either so should be an afternoon full of wonderful surprises.”
