“But Daddy I Love Him,” the big song that kicks offTaylor Swift‘s Tortured Poets Department set on The Eras Tour, had Paul McCartney dancing with fans at London’s Wembley Stadium on Sunday (June 23).

The Beatles legend, who just turned 82, was a VIP guest at Swift’s third concert at Wembley this weekend. Videos showed his arrival at the stadium, but one clip in particular is quite special, capturing an experience that would be priceless to any McCartney/Swift fan.

As Swift sang the “But Daddy I Love Him” lyric about how cynics and saboteurs can’t “counteract chemistry, undo the destiny” of her relationship with the song’s muse, a group of fans simply basking in the moment caught McCartney’s attention.


McCartney took note of the concertgoers’ dance moves and joined in.

“You ain’t gotta pray for me/ Me and my wild boy, and all this wild joy,” Swift is heard singing in the video embedded below. McCartney sways and seems to sing along to some of the lyrics, alongside a number of wonderstruck concertgoers who couldn’t have guessed this encounter would happen.

Snapshots from Wembley Stadium on social media showed McCartney was approachable earlier in the day, too, partaking in the Eras Tour tradition of trading friendship bracelets.

Also spotted with friendship bracelets at Swift’s Sunday show in London was Jon Bon Jovi, and among the many other famous faces seen during her three-night takeover at Wembley were Prince William on Friday and Tom Cruise on Saturday. Swift’s boyfriend Travis Kelce was in town for the London gigs, and unexpectedly made his Eras Tour stage debut during Tortured Poets‘ “I Can Do It With a Broken Heart,” in costume.

It’s not “So Long, London” for Swift yet. The Eras Tour revisits Wembley for five more nights in August, due to demand, but heads to several other cities before then, including Dublin, Amsterdam, Zurich and Milan over the next few weeks.


The Tortured Poets Department is currently spending its ninth consecutive and total week at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart.
