Legendary singer Paul McCartney treated fans to a very special performance of The Beatles' 1967 hit 'Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band' when he welcomed former bandmate Ringo Starr onto the stage during his Freshen Up concert in Los Angeles this week.

"We've got a surprise for us, a surprise for you, a surprise for everyone: Ladies and gentlemen, the one and only, Ringo Starr," McCartney told the crowd at Dodger Stadium.

The audience went wild as Starr took to the stage, with the pair hugging before he got behind the drum set.

The performance marked the first time the pair have played together since they teamed up at the Grammy Awards in 2014.

The show marked McCartney's final night of his American tour.
