A surprise Beatles reunion happened over the weekend, when Paul McCartney invited Ringo Starr on stage to join him on a rendition of Get Back. Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood was also on hand to lend his chops to the 1969 hit.

The packed London O2 arena was treated to Starr’s grooves, with Wood also throwing in some tasty licks for good measure. Aside from the surprise reunion, McCartney performed a collection of old and new material, including solo sections, Wings singles, classics from the Fab Four, and tracks from his latest solo album, Egypt Station.

With this show, McCartney wraps up his 2018 edition of the Freshen Up tour, which resumes in March with a couple of South American dates.
