The Beatles star wore the Rainbow flag at Berlin's Waldbühne last night.

Paul McCartney has paid tribute to the victims of the Orlando shootings.

The Beatles star played the Waldbühne Berlin last night (14 June) for his One On One tour, where he wore the Rainbow flag on stage.

Proudly brandishing the colours - which have become synonymous with LGBTQ rights - with his band, the Maybe I'm Amazed singer said in German: "We stand together with Orlando".

Watch the touching moment it unfolded below: 

The Hey Jude singer has also paid tribute to former Wings guitarist Henry McCullough, who died on Tues, aged 72.

Taking to his official website, he wrote: "I was very sad to hear that Henry McCullough, our great Wings guitarist, passed away today. He was a pleasure to work with, a super-talented musician with a lovely sense of humour. The solo he played on 'My Love' was a classic that he made up on the spot in front of a live orchestra. Our deepest sympathies from my family to his."
