br /> Young was playing The Beatles classic A Day in the Life on his Gibson electric guitar during the encore when the rock legend walked on stage.

Sir Paul, who played bass guitar in the Liverpool band, arrived just in time to sing the middle section of the track, which he had sung originally on the Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album.

A Day in the Life, which McCartney co-wrote with John Lennon, is widely hailed as one of the most innovative of all The Beatles' recordings.

However, he had never played it live in concert until 2008, when he performed it a special stadium gig in Liverpool.

The song has been in Young's setlist for some years and is frequently used as the final song of the show.

Fans at the gig also got to enjoy other classics including Rockin' in the Free World, Hey Hey My My and Spirit Road.
