James Live At The Barfly In London,Dad Was There

 It was a McCartney family reunion as the Beatles legend took his two daughters to see their little brother play at the 200-capacity Barfly venue in Camden, North London. The 34 year old then surprised his superstar father by dedicating his ballad Wings Of A Lightest Weight to him. He told the crowd, "This is about my dad. It's a beautiful song."

PROUD dad Sir Paul McCartney hugs his kids after his son's performance at a tiny pub venue last night.

The Beatles legend — used to playing huge arenas and headlining festivals — showed his support for James by turning up to watch his live set at London's Barfly.
Sisters Mary and Stella also attended and there were smiles all round as the close-knit family embraced for pics following the singer's low-key gig.
James — son of Macca and late wife Linda — has only just started out as a solo artist, having previously played guitar and drums for his famous father.
He appeared on Paul's 1997 collection Flaming Pie and his 2001 album Driving Rain, as well as co-writing several tracks.

The 34-year-old first went it alone in 2009, debuting his own original material at the Fairfield Arts & Convention Center in Iowa, US.

He released his first EP, Available Light, in September 2010 and a follow-up, Close At Hand, earlier this year.

Bearing more than a passing resemblance to his dad, James is a staunch vegan in honour of his late animal activist mum.
