On Friday night, Sir Paul McCartney proudly etched his name at the top of Lollapalooza’s ever-evolving history books. For over two hours, the 73-year-old legend commanded a 31-song set for Chicago’s Grant Park that showcased his own catalogue and, naturally, that of The Beatles and Wings.

One surprising highlight, however, arrived late into the night when Macca invited Alabama Shakes frontwoman Brittany Howard to shine on the ol’ six-string and share the microphone for a spirited rendition of “Get Back”.

To her credit, Howard’s own outfit delivered a rousing and raucous set only hours prior, and yet she hardly looked fatigued as she sang her heart out next to the former Beatle. Judging how it all went down, especially their friendly riffing, it would appear that the two get along just swell.

Watch below.
