It May Be Ringo’s Day, But It Wasn’t Long Ago That Paul McCartney Received His Own Birthday Surprise

Last month Paul McCartney was standing on a New Jersey stage, entertaining a crowd of fans on his own birthday when he received an unexpected surprise. While the former Beatle was poised to perform one of the group’s classic hits, Birthday he asks the crowd if any one of the 50,000 in attendance has a birthday coming up. He had no idea, however, that his own birthday would soon take center stage during the performance.

As the rocker prepares to sing the famous Birthday hit, another music legend, Jon Bon Jovi takes the stage, to acknowledge the former Beatles heartthrob’s own special day. It was a surprise performance that was a treat for everyone involved – fans and performers alike.

“I know it’s somebody’s birthday,” Bon Jovi says as he steps on the stage for the exciting birthday moment. The Living On A Prayer singer even brought a gift for McCartney. As he stepped onto the stage, Bon Jovi handed the rocker a bunch of festive balloons in celebration of McCartney’s 80th birthday.
