Paul McCartney teamed up with The Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood during his gig at London’s O2 Arena last night (December 5) – scroll down and click below to watch fan footage of the hook-up.

The former Beatle was playing his only London show of 2011, when towards the end of his set, he told the audience he “had a surprise” for them.

He then ushered a denim-clad Wood onstage, having the guitarist play along with him on The Beatles‘ 1969 classic ‘Get Back’. At the song’s finish, Wood and McCartney hugged each other before the former left the stage.


The three-hour, career-spanning set included a number of Beatles tracks McCartney had never played in the UK before, including ‘The Night Before’, ‘The Word’ and ‘Come And Get It’.

The latter track, although demoed for The Beatles‘Abbey Road’ album, wasn’t officially released by the band until 1996 when it came out on their Anthology series. It was a Number Seven hit for Badfinger in 1970 though, after McCartney gave them the track.

Audience members at the London show included comedian Bill Bailey and Boo Radleys songwriter Martin Carr.
