Paul McCartney Reunites With Ringo Starr for Dodger Stadium Show
"My brother. I love you, man," McCartney yelled, as Starr immediately stepped behind the drum kit. Eagles guitarist — and Starr’s brother-in-law — Joe Walsh also took to the stage later during the concert.
Paul McCartney had a special reunion with Ringo Starr during his Saturday night concert at Dodger Stadium, with the pair performing two Beatles classics.
"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 told the Los Angeles audience for his Freshen Up tour when introducing Starr to the stage. As the crowd erupted into applause, McCartney praised Starr for being his "brother."
"My brother. I love you, man," McCartney yelled, as Starr immediately stepped behind the drum kit.
The pair and McCartney's band then launched into "Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band (Reprise)." McCartney and Starr also joined forces to perform "Helter Skelter" from what is generally referred to as The White Album.
During Starr's exit, the drummer thanked the audience while McCartney saluted him with Starr's catchphrase, "Peace and love."
In addition to the reunion with Starr, McCartney surprised the audience with another special guest: Eagles guitarist — and Starr’s brother-in-law — Joe Walsh, who joined McCartney onstage to join in on the guitar solos on The Beatles' "The End."
"The best part is we didn’t have a clue what we were doing," McCartney quipped to the crowd of Walsh's surprise appearance.
Saturday night's show marked McCartney's final night of his U.S. tour.
