It’s remarkable that a man who has been entertaining audiences for over 50 years could be in the midst of a career renaissance, but then Sir Paul McCartney didn’t earn his knighthood for nothing. Fresh off his recent collaborations with pop stars like Kanye West and Rihanna, McCartney recently found time to jam with another seminal figure in contemporary music, Dave Grohl.
At his concert at the O2 Arena in London on Saturday night, McCartney brought out the Foo Fighters frontman for a rendition of his Beatles classic “I Saw Her Standing There.” Unlike the duos 2009 performance of the song at the Grammys, Grohl played guitar rather than drums, but their chemistry remains as strong as ever. Watch a fan-shot video of their performance above.
At this point, McCartney and Grohl could be considered something of old friends. In addition to their 2009 Grammy performance, the twosome -- along with Grohl’s former Nirvana bandmate Krist Novoselic and fellow Foo Fighter Pat Smear -- won a Grammy in 2014 for their song “Cut Me Some Slack” off of the “Sound City” soundtrack.
Grohl’s appearance wasn’t the only special moment for fans at McCartney’s O2 show. According to Rolling Stone, Macca also played the McCartney II deep cut “Temporary Secretary” live for the first time since its release 35 years ago.

McCartney’s next show is scheduled for this Wednesday, May 27 at the Barclaycard Arena in Birmingham, England. McCartney returns to the U.S. next month for a headlining performance at the Firefly Music Festival in Dover, Delaware.
