Ringo Starr’s 70th birthday celebrations ended in Fab Four style on Wednesday night when the drummer’s former Beatles bandmate Paul McCartney joined him onstage at Radio City Music Hall in New York.

The two pals teamed up at the end of a star-studded All Starr Band concert for a rendition of the Beatles Birthday.

John Lennon’s widow Yoko Ono, Starr’s brother-in-law Joe Walsh, Steve Van Zandt, Jeff Lynne, Nils Lofgren and Starr’s drummer son Zak Starkey were among the celebrities who joined Starr for an encore singalong rendition of With a Little Help From My Friends that appeared to mark the end of the birthday show – but then McCartney stunned the crowd with an unannounced appearance.
