Paul McCartney was joined onstage by Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic at his show in Seattle on Sunday night (April 17).

The pair teamed up live for a rendition of The Beatles classic ‘Helter Skelter’, with Novoselic playing bass during the performance. Watch footage from the show beneath.

McCartney and Novoselic had previously worked together on ‘Cut Me Some Slack’, which they performed together at the 12-12-12 benefit concert in December 2012 and later released as a studio recording.


Former Nirvana drummer and Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl previously spoke about working with McCartney on ‘Cut Me Some Slack’, saying: “We walked in; we jammed the song. It just came out of nowhere. The best songs happen that way. We recorded it live and put a vocal over it and that was it. It was three hours and it was perfect.”

McCartney is currently embarking on the North American leg of his ‘One On One’ world tour.

It was reportedly over the weekend that Paul McCartney, along with Bob Dylan and The Rolling Stones, has been booked for what reports are calling “one of the biggest concerts in history”.

Reports suggest that Goldenvoice Entertainment, the promoters behind Coachella Festival, will hold the festival in Indio, California between October 7-9.
