Sir Paul McCartney hired a Beatles tribute band to perform at his wife's 54th birthday party, according to reports.
The Parrots, Japan's top copycat act who sing almost 200 Beatles tracks, took to the stage at the surprise 54th birthday bash for Nancy Shevell in Tokyo, the Daily Mirror reported.
According to the newspaper, Macca, 71, even joined the band to sing the Fab Four's 1964 hit I Saw Her Standing There.
One of the guests at the party was quoted as saying: "It must have been nerve-racking for them to play in front of one of their heroes."
Macca is in Japan on his Out There world tour, promoting his album New.
