There were reports that Paul was at the Royal Albert Hall on Friday night - rehearsing All My Loving.

And indeed, he did appear on stage and perform three songs at the Linda Tribute Concert. Although his voice was shaky - remember when this concert was announced, Paul said that he was not sure he would be able to attend the show.

Paul and his family watched the show from their own private box.

The show was hosted by comedian Eddie Izzard who pointed out that proceeds from the event were going to animal charities.

Among the stars that appeared were George Michael, Elvis Costello, Tom Jones, Crissie Hynde and The Pretenders, Johnny Marr, Sinead O'Connor, Des'ree, Heather Small, Neil Finn and Marianne Faithfull.

Paul arrived on stage to tumultuous cheers from the audience, as a chorus of famous names joined him in a rendition of Let It Be. He also played one of the couple's favorite songs, Ricky Nelson's Lonesome Town, and his 1963 hit All My Loving.

His voice cracked with emotion as he told the audience: "She's with us, she's loving it." He said fans' expressions of support had convinced him to attend. "We could see there was a power," he said. Paul also thanked his family and officially spoke of his grandson.

The concert was filmed by Kevin Godley and will be shown on BBC One on Sunday 18th, and it will also be broadcast on BBC Radio 2 on 17 April at 1930 UK time.
