After Wood came out to massive applause, McCartney said to him: "And I believe we've got someone else here...the ever-fantastic Mr. Ringo Starr!". Celebrities including Harry Styles, Emma Thompson, Idris Elba, Simon Pegg, Chris Martin, Geri Halliwell and Roger Daltrey joined the audience at London's O2 for a show that also featured the Capital Children's Choir singing Macca's hit Wonderful Christmas Time. "It's a surprise for us, actually - it only happened today", McCartney told fans as his fellow music icons took the stage.

Sadly, that's set to be the last McCartney live date on these shores for the foreseeable future - the Freshen Up tour will resume in March with a set of South American dates, before it moves north for a string of gigs across the U.S. which'll conclude in July.

"I'm just going to let that moment sink in", McCartney added. He performed tracks from that new album as well as Beatles and Wings songs. Next up for McCartney is a run of shows in South America in late March before he returns to North America in May.
