Paul McCartney closed the 2010 Isle Of Wight Festival tonight (June 13), headlining the Main Stage.

Taking to the stage after a pre-recorded video introduction from comedian James Corden, he kicked things off with ‘Venus And Mars Rockshow’ before diving straight into ‘Jet’.

“Good evening Isle Of Wight, we’re going to have fun tonight,” he told crowd before playing his first Beatles’ song of the night, ‘All My Loving’.

Playing a career spanning set, McCartney also paid tribute to Jimi Hendrix, famed for stealing the show at the 1970 Isle Of Wight Festival but including a few bars from ‘Purple Haze’ at the end ‘Let Me Roll It’.

“I was really lucky to know Jimi and hang out with him a little bit in the 60s, he was a great guy,” he told the crowd afterwards. “The biggest tribute we had from him was we [The Beatles] released ‘Sgt Pepper’ on a Friday and then I went to see him on the Sunday and he learnt it, how cool was that for me? Very cool!”

Having performed the likes of Wings’ ‘1985’, McCartney stepped up a gear, playing a run of songs including ‘Band On The Run’, ‘Back In The USSR’, ‘Let It Be’ and ‘Hey Jude’.

He then rounded things off with ‘Yesterday’, ‘Helter Skelter’ and the aforementioned ‘Sgt Pepper’
