Paul McCartney Joined Ringo Starr in NY Last Night

| On 08, Jul 2010

Paul McCartney joined Ringo Starr in a Beatles reunion at New York‘s Radio City Music Hall last night (July 7).

In the finale of the drummer’s 70th birthday celebration gig, Yoko Ono, Joe Walsh, Angus Young, Nils Lofgren, Foreigner‘s Mick Jones and others joined Starr to sing ‘With A Little Help From My Friends’.

However, once the stage was partly cleared and the crowd prepared to make their way to the exits, a roadie appeared on stage brandishing Paul McCartney’s famous Hofner bass, reports Rolling Stone.

McCartney than ran on to play ‘The White Album’‘s ‘Birthday’ with Starr playing drums.

The reunion capped an evening already studded with guest appearances.

Opening with Starr‘s 1971 hit ‘It Don’t Come Easy’, the Beatle was joined by Edgar Winter, guitarist Rick Derringer, Mr Mister‘s bassist Richard Page, Gary “Dream Weaver” Wright, and the RomanticsWally Palmer throughout the evening.

The eclectic set list included The Beatles’ ‘I Wanna Be Your Man’ and ‘Boys’, plus the Edgar Winter Band‘s ‘Free Ride’ and ‘Frankenstein’.

Previously, Starr and McCartney performed together at a New York benefit in April 2009. Both musicians are in the middle of summer tours, with McCartney making recent appearances at the Isle Of Wight and Hard Rock Calling festivals.
