Ronnie Wood, Roger Daltrey and Paul Weller sat in with McCartney’s band for a performance of the Beatles 1969 hit,’Get Back.’
McCartney had played a typical set at the legendary venue which, as every Beatles fan knows, seats approximately 4,000 people. Following such classics as ‘Maybe I’m Amazed,’ ‘Let It Be’ and ‘Blackbird,’ During the encore, McCartney called out his buddies to a rapturous ovation.
Daltrey contributes some harmony vocals while Weller, whose new album ‘Sonik Kicks’ debuted at No. 1 on the British album charts, plays rhythm guitar. Wood gets a solo and does some call-and-response with McCartney during the breakdown.
