Paul McCartney wrapped up his massive Freshen Up Tour on Saturday at Los Angeles’ Dodger Stadium, and surprised fans by bringing out his old bandmate Ringo Starr to perform a pair of classic Beatles songs.
The surprise reunion took place in the same stadium that held the Beatles’ penultimate live show in August 1966.
Paul McCartney brought out Ringo Starr in his performance at Los Angeles’ Dodger Stadium, to perform a couple of Beatles classics.
“We’ve got a surprise for us, a surprise for you, a surprise for everyone,” McCartney said. “Ladies and gentlemen, the one and only Ringo Starr.”
The two rock icons and last remaining Beatles members hugged onstage before firing off 1967’s Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band (Reprise) and The White Album cut Helter Skelter, to a crowd exploding with enthusiasm.

Mccartney also brought out a second special guest, The Eagles member Joe Walsh, who also happens to be Starr’s brother-in-law. Walsh popped up on stage to knock out guitar during the Abbey Road number The End.
“The best part is we didn’t have a clue what we were doing,” McCartney later jokingly told the audience of the evening’s star-studded collaborations.
