Paul McCartney's so good, I'm off to rehearse, says Pulp's Jarvis ‎

Sir Paul McCartney’s five-star performance at the Royal Albert Hall had younger rock stars running scared, Jarvis Cocker confessed.

Ronnie Wood, Roger Daltrey and Paul Weller joined the former Beatle on stage for an electrifying Teenage Cancer Trust show last night.

Members of his succeeding generation, including Cocker, marvelled as the legends lit up the concert hall with a rousing rendition of Get Back.

Afterwards the Pulp singer, who will appear with his band tomorrow, told the Standard: “We’re going back to rehearse now. We’re scared.”

Rolling Stones guitarist Wood hailed the gig as a roaring success. “It was rocking — as usual,” he said, as he enjoyed a post-gig cigarette outside the hall.

Wood said he was delighted to support the charity, which helps young people to fight cancer. “We wouldn’t be anywhere without the teenagers,” he said.

Fans flocked to London from all over Britain to join a star-studded audience in roaring on their heroes. University lecturer Graham Logan travelled from Liverpool with wife Jan, a service manager for charity Mencap.

“We’re massive Macca fans,” said Mr Logan, 55. “This is the fifth time we have seen him on his tour.” Mrs Logan, 48, said: “We have been coming to Teenage Cancer Trust gigs since they started in 2002.

“My brother had cancer and successfully came through it, so this is a cause close to our hearts.” As patron of the trust, Daltrey has been the concerts’ driving force for more than a decade and he kicked off this year’s series of Royal Albert Hall shows on Wednesday.

Tonight sees singer Example take the stage, while on Sunday Jessie J will be supported by Professor Green.

On Monday Jason Manford will host a comedy evening with Jimmy Carr, Alan Davies, Stewart Francis and Tim Minchin. The series ends on Tuesday with Florence + the Machine.
