Sir Paul McCartney has posted a cryptic tweet seeming to confirm he will be performing at next year’s Glastonbury Festival.

The 77-year-old singer shared a photo on his official account page showing composer Philip Glass, actor Emma Stone and the late Chuck Berry.

There had been rumours the former Beatle could be performing a headline slot on the Pyramid Stage, but this is the first direct hint from McCartney himself.

If he were to perform, it would follow the 50th anniversary of The Beatles iconic Abbey Road album earlier this year.

The long-running music festival will celebrate its own 50th anniversary next summer.

McCartney released the solo album Egypt Station last year, his first in five years.

He headlined the Somerset festival, which is run by Michael Eavis and his daughter Emily, just once before back in 2004.
