Los Angeles, Ca, United States (4E) – The Beatles members Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr had a special reunion on Saturday night at the Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles, where they performed some of the band’s classic hits.
McCartney was performing for the final US leg of his sold out 2019 Freshen Up tour when he called out a surprise special guest to perform with him. Near the end of his three-hour show, the 77-year-old rock icon called out Starr, who strolled onstage and made his way to the drum kit.
As the crowd erupted in applause, McCartney praised Starr and called him brother. “My brother, I love you, man,” the singer yelled.
The pair then gave a stunning performance of the Beatles’ “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band (Reprise)”. They also performed “Helter Skelter”, from the band’s “The White Album”.
Before Starr exited the stage, he thanked and the audience, after which McCartney saluted him with his signature catchphrase, “Peace and love,” The Hollywood Reporter noted.
Eagles guitarist, and Starr’s brother-in-law, Joe Walsh also performed with McCartney on the guitar solo’s for their rendition of The Beatles’ “The End”.
Seeing the only two surviving members of The Beatles together on stage is rare, but it’s not the first time they performed together in recent years. Back in 2014, they joined forces for the star-studded tribute concert “The Night That Change America: A Grammys Salute to The Beatles”.
During the event, Starr and McCartney were honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award.
Other artists who performed at the “Grammys Salute” were John Legend, Alicia Keys, and Keith Urban.
