Celebrities including Molly Ringwald, Joe Jonas and Christina Perri headed to the Dodger Stadium on Sunday (10Aug14) to see Sir Paul McCartney's first Los Angeles performance in four years. The former Beatles star graced the stage at the sports ground for the first time since the Fab Four's gig at the venue in 1966. His hotly-anticipated return was watched by a number of celebrities who shared pictures and videos of the set on social media. Jonas uploaded a video of McCartney's firework finale display and filmed the crowd going wild while The Breakfast Club actress Ringwald made a commentary about the performance on Twitter.com. She wrote, "Listening to Paul McCartney sing a love song to John Lennon. Totally got me," later adding, "Sir Paul knows his way around a great singalong. #PaulMcCartney #heyjude" She also uploaded a picture of the rocker singing his fellow Beatle George Harrison's song Something, while playing Harrison's ukelele. Perri uploaded a video of the legend singing Let It Be and wrote, "Only paul can make me sob and smile at the same time." The concert was part of McCartney's Out There tour. He last played a gig in Los Angeles at the Hollywood Bowl in 2010.
