About

From paulmccartney.com, July 7, 2010:

As a surprise to celebrate Ringo’s 70th birthday, Paul joined Ringo Starr’s All Starr Band onstage last night at New York’s Radio City Music Hall. Paul performed The Beatles classic ‘Birthday’. The last time Paul and Ringo performed together was on the same stage last year for the David Lynch Foundation benefit show.

I’ve never actually seen his All-Starr show. I was enjoying the show along with the audience, but when it got to ‘A Little Help from My Friends’, the people in the row in front of me were looking at me like ‘What’s happened? Shouldn’t you be up there as one of his friends?’ I’m going ‘Shh!’ Ringo did not know. I swear he was just so gobsmacked. Ringo said ‘I’m going to the dressing room.’ Barbara [his wife] said ‘Hang on just a minute.’ And then we started up ‘Birthday’ with Joe Walsh and the band, and then he finally realized what was going on. He came leaping back on stage and said ‘l wasn’t going to sit that one out.’

From Rob Shanahan – Photographer (@shanahanphoto) • Instagram photos and videos – I’ve gotten to shoot with Paul several times over the years, but one of the best was his surprise appearance for Ringo’s birthday at Radio City Music Hall in 2010. Keeping it a secret all day was so tense, but the payoff was incredible.⁠ Here’s a rare shot of Paul from the soundcheck that day! ⁠
