Paul McCartney shared the stage with a young fan at his gig in Buenos Aires last night.

The legendary Beatle spotted 10-year-old Leila Lacase in the audience during his show at the Argentinian capital’s La Plata Stadium, holding a sign that asked him to sign her teddy bear. McCartney went one better than her request, however, inviting both Lacase and her mother up on stage.

Lacase then revealed her actual reason for grabbing the 73-year-old’s attention, informing McCartney that “I want to play bass with you," eliciting huge cheers from the audience. Lacase's wish was granted, as McCartney allowed the youngster to both play along and join in vocals on The Beatles’ 1969 single ‘Get Back’, which appeared on the group’s final album ‘Let It Be’ in 1970.

“What did you think of that?” McCartney asked at the end of number, a question that was met by his audience with a rapturous response and the chanting of Lacase’s name. It’s unclear whether McCartney actually signed the girl’s bear, however.




McCartney is currently on the South American leg of his ‘One On One’ tour which visits Europe for eight dates this summer, beginning later this month in Dusseldorf, Germany.
