Sir Paul McCartney had a very busy Saturday. The former Beatle managed to zip over to France to be given a medal, then hotfoot it back to London to appear on stage with Damon Albarn.
The first part of Macca’s exciting day out saw him awarded the French Legion of Honour, for services to music, by President Francois Hollande.
Later in the evening, McCartney surprised the audience at Damon Albarn’s Africa Express concert in London’s Kings Cross, by joining the African and British musicians in several extended jams, alongside Led Zeppelin’s John Paul Jones, before performing his own Goodnight Tonight.
Amusingly, during the final song of the night, the power to the P.A. was switched off in a scene similar to when he appeared with Bruce Springsteen in Hyde Park. Is that Sir Paul’s thing now?
