Paul McCartney closed the 2022 U.S. edition of his “Got Back” tour on Thursday (June 16) at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., with the Garden State’s most prominent classic rock native sons. As McCartney finished performing “Band on the Run,” he welcomed Bruce Springsteen to the stage. “We got a special surprise for you,” McCartney said. “A friend of mine, he’s a local boy. I think you guessed it! I said you got to come and sing with us!”

“Here’s to 80 more years of glory days!” the Boss retorted, arriving with a guitar slung over his shoulder. The pair performed Springsteen’s “Glory Days” and the Beatles’ “I Wanna Be Your Man.” Later, Sir Paul was joined by Jon Bon Jovi, who led the audience in singing “Happy Birthday” to the legend, who turns 80 on June 18. Watch the performances below.

McCartney breezed though his vast catalog of Beatles, Wings and solo hits. After the band performed “Band on the Run,” McCartney invited his friend, Bruce, to the stage.

When the tour opened on April 28, it featured a memorable “duet.”

Watch the MetLife edition of that performance.

“That’s so special for me, you know,” said McCartney before Jon Bon Jovi led a “Happy Birthday” sing-along for McCartney, who celebrates his 80th tomorrow (June 18, 2022).

    Paul moves like same young man as beatle, when he plays, still sings great, makes aging appear youthful, still brings the joy to me all these yrs later…if only George and John were still here to see all four play together..bless him and them for blessing us!
