Paul McCartney at the Superbowl with Eric Idle and Dan Aykroyd
Paul McCartney has created a Superbowl super-selfie with Monty Python star Eric Idle, Joe Walsh from The Eagles and Ghostbusters actor Dan Aykroyd.
Eric Idle, who formed Beatles parody band The Rutles, was obviously a little star-struck by the encounter, posting the photo on Twitter with the simple caption: ‘How cool is this?’
He went on to reveal that he’d been sitting next to Game of Thrones author George. R.R. Martin during the match and high fived him!
It’s not clear which team the celebrities were supporting in the Superbowl XLIX, eventual winners New England Patriots or narrowly defeated Seattle Seahawks. But they looked to be having a great time away from the heat of the action at University of Phoenix Stadium, Glendale in Arizona.
Macca is no stranger to America’s favourite sporting spectacle. In 2005 he got the gig filled by Katy Perry this year: half-time entertainment. On top of an X-shaped stage made of video projectors, McCartney sang Drive My Car, Get Back, Live and Let Die and a finale of Hey Jude - with the 84,000 crowd on backing vocals.

The 49th Super Bowl was attended by numerous celebrities, including Mark Wahlberg, Britney Spears and her boyfriend, Charlie Ebersol, John Travolta, Will Ferrell, Kenny Chesney and Paul McCartney, as well as John Legend, who opened with a beautiful rendition of 'America The Beautiful'.
Legend was followed by Broadway star Idina Menzel, who performed the national anthem. During the half time show, Katy Perry entertained crowds with a 12-minute performance that saw her dance provocatively with rock star Lenny Kravitz and ride on the back of a silver mechanical tiger.
