Watch Paul McCartney Perform Live, with 10-Year-Old Leila on Bass, in Buenos Aires Yesterday

A few weeks ago, I took my kids to see Paul McCart­ney launch his One on One Tour in Fres­no, Cal­i­for­nia. The high­light? See­ing him play “Hard Day’s Night” and “Love Me Do” live for the first time since the 1960s? Not real­ly. Watch­ing Sir Paul wave at my kids when they held up a “Chee­rio Paul” sign? Yeah, that was worth the price of the tick­ets alone.

But none of that com­pares to the scene that played out ear­li­er this week in Buenos Aires. Above, watch lit­tle Leila sweet­ly ask Paul to play a lit­tle bass, get her wish grant­ed, and rock to some “Get Back.” It’s pret­ty adorable.
