LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) — As former Beatle Sir Paul McCartney closed out his Freshen Up tour in Los Angeles, he staged a brief reunion with his former bandmate Ringo Starr.
“We’ve got a surprise for us, a surprise for you, a surprise for everyone: Ladies and gentlemen, the one and only, Ringo Starr,” McCartney told the crowd during his sold-out performance at Dodger Stadium on Saturday night.
With some help from Starr on the drums, they covered a couple of Beatles classics, including the reprise from “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” and “Helter Skelter” from The White Album.
Following the two songs, Ringo thanked the audience before exiting the stage with his customary “peace and love.”
The performance was the first time the two have played together in public since 2014 and the first time they have shared the stage at Dodger Stadium since 1996 when the Beatles performed one of their final U.S. shows there.
Ringo was not the only rock icon McCartney enlisted for the show, and he brought out the Eagles’ Joe Walsh to perform a guitar solo during McCartney’s rendition of the Beatles classic “The End” from Abbey Road.
