Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr reunited on stage on Saturday night (July 13) for the final date of McCartney’s 2019 Freshen Up tour at Dodgers Stadium in Los Angeles. The pair of Beatles joined together for two songs during the evening’s encore, “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Heart’s Club Band (Reprise)” and “Helter Skelter.” Watch the performances below.

[And, for the evening’s finale, another classic rock legend joined in the fun. See below.]

“It’s a surprise for us. It’s a surprise for you. It’s a surprise for everyone,” said McCartney. “Ladies and Gentlemen… the one and only… Ringo Starr!” The crowd erupted.

“Peace and Love, everybody,” shouted Starr, who turned 79 on July 7. “I love you, man,” said McCartney, as Ringo got behind the drum kit.

As the encores continued, McCartney began playing several of the songs from side two of Abbey Road. As they performed “Golden Slumbers” and “Carry That Weight,” none other than Ringo’s brother-in-law, Joe Walsh, joined in the fun.

Eagles completed a tour of Europe on July 8. Their only U.S. dates in 2019 will be in Las Vegas this fall. Tickets are available at Ticketmaster and StubHub.

August 2019 marks the 30th anniversary of Ringo and His All Starr Band and they will hit the road for a celebratory tour which concludes September 1 at the Greek Theater in Los Angeles, nearly 30 years to the day when the inaugural All Starrs completed their first tour on September 3, 1989. Tickets are available here and here.
