The fans opens up on the incident
She said that she is “absolutely gutted” about missing the show. The legendary Beatle‘s near-three-hour show on Saturday night (June 25), which featured a whole host of classic songs and special guest appearances from Dave Grohl and Bruce Springsteen, drew a huge crowd to the Pyramid Stage. McCartney also scripted history at the show by becoming the oldest ever solo headliner in the festival’s history.
In attendance, Lisa Morris, had waited hours to see McCartney’s set from the front of the crowd barriers. However, Morris, 50, from Bath, started to feel unwell shortly before McCartney came on stage. She fainted around 25 minutes into the performance and had to be carried out of the crowd by security guards.
McCartney had been telling a story about Jimi Hendrix at the time, but stopped to check in on Morris. “What’s going on there? Something happening in the middle of the crowd,” he said. “Let’s attend to it.”
Once he saw that security were successfully dealing with the incident, he joked: “It wasn’t that solo I played, was it?”
Speaking to BBC News, Morris said that she was “absolutely gutted” to have missed the performance from her “hero” McCartney.
“Probably five, six songs in, that was it, game over,” she recalled about the moment she fainted, adding that she “absolutely sobbed” when she later realised that she had missed the set.
She was carried to the medical tent, where she was told she was on the verge of hypothermia.
