    Vivid Seats Ticket promoBeatlemania was in full display in London this weekend as a mini Beatles reunion took place at the city’s O2 Arena.

    Paul McCartney, who’s currently amidst his “Freshen Up Tour”, welcomed former bandmate Ringo Starr to the stage to perform their 1969 Beatles hit “Get Back”. The pair was also joined by another English rock legend in The Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood.

    The star-studded collaborative performance came during the encore portion of Macca’s career-spanning, 40-song set, which included solo selections and Wings singles alongside Beatles classics.

    Fans in attendance were first clued in to the reunion after spotting Starr in the crowd. Sir Paul’s daughter, Stella McCartney, also posted a backstage photo prior to the set which featured Macca, Wood, and actress Emma Thompson. “Kick ass tonight dad,” Stella wrote in the caption.

    The Who’s Roger Daltrey, Coldplay’s Chris Martin, Harry Styles, and Spice Girls’ Geri Halliwell were also reported to be at the concert, as was Olivia Harrison, widow of George Harrison.
