Two remaining Fab Four members appear onstage in California
The two living Beatles, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, appeared together onstage at Microsoft‘s Electronic Entertainment Expo yesterday (June 1) at the University of Southern California to promote the all-new Harmonix game, ‘The Beatles: Rock Band’.
The pair took to the stage to make a brief introduction for a preview of the game, with McCartney playing air guitar as he walked on.
“The game is good, the graphics are good, and we look great,” joked Starr, as the pair lapped up enthusiastic applause from the crowd.
“I never thought we’d end up as androids,” McCartney added before they headed off stage.
The event was the second time the pair have appeared together this year, after playing onstage together in April at a charity show in New York – the first time they had done so in seven years.
