Fans went wild when a mini Beatles reunion happened on Saturday night.
The iconic British rock band’s surviving members, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, were together again onstage on July 13.
At Los Angeles’ Dodger Stadium, on the last night of McCartney’s North American concert tour, Sir Paul suddenly invited Starr to join him!
“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, 77, told the ecstatic crowd.
Starr, 79, walked onstage and the two embraced with McCartney saying, “I love you, man.”
“Are you ready to rock?” McCartney asked Starr.
“Ready to rock,” Starr replied, adding, “Peace and love, everybody. (They’re) bringing out me drums.”
The legendary drummer stepped behind a kit wheeled out for him, sitting in alongside regular tour drummer Abraham Laboriel, and performed the minute-long “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band (Reprise).”
Then McCartney and Starr also delivered the song “Helter Skelter” together.
The men hugged afterwards, and Starr said, “Thank you, Paul. It’s been a thrill for me, and I’ve had a lovely night, and it’s a great show, and I love you, man.”
“And I love you, man,” McCartney echoed, adding Ringo’s catchphrase: “Peace and love, Ringo — forever.”
Starr then playfully threw his drum sticks into the crowd.
McCartney and Starr hadn’t played together at Dodger Stadium for 53 years, when the Beatles had a gig there on August 28, 1966.
Starr and wife Barbara Bach sat in a VIP section for most of McCartney’s Saturday concert.
