Ronnie Wood and Paul McCartney Rock with James McCartney in London
Claire Holton

Classic rock fans were given a rare treat at London’s Ambassador Theatre last night.

James McCartney took to the stage with surprise guests Beatles legend and father Paul McCartney as well as Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood in a special sold-out performance, Contact Music reports.

Ronnie joined James on stage for both old and news songs, including “Snow” and “Mexico.”  Paul, who was in the audience with wife Nancy and daughters Stella and Mary, couldn’t help but join in and jumped onstage to play piano with son James on three songs.

The gig proved to be a great preview for James’ 47-date US tour set to begin on April 6.

James McCartney's first full length album, “Me,” will be released on May 21.  In a statement on his official website, McCartney said of the album, “I wanted to make a record that would be intimate, deeply personal, and honest.  An album that would say, ‘This is who I am… both musically and personally.  This is me.’”
