Paul McCartney performed a duet with actor Kevin Spacey at a star-studded concert in London last night (July 1).

The pair sang a version of The Beatles‘ classic ‘Hey Jude’ together after Spacey jumped onstage during the specials show at the Battersea Power Station. Before launching into the track McCartney had dedicated the song to actress Judi Dench.

Audience members for the show included Bernie Ecclestone, Nick Clegg, James Corden, Stephen Fry, Mark Ronson, Ronnie Corbett, Bryan Adams, Anya Hindmarch, Joely Richardson and Peter Blake.

It was held in aid of McCartney‘s own Meat Free Monday campaign and The Old Queen Victoria Theatre.

Speaking about the show, McCartney said: “It was a great pleasure to come and rock out for the Old Vic’ers!”

He added: “Such a great event for a good cause. When Kevin strong-armed me into doing it, as he does, we were only too pleased to show up and step up to the plate. We had a great evening, we rocked out and the crowd did too. We couldn’t have asked for more.”
