The Rolling Stones played a show last night (June 9) at Anfield Stadium in Liverpool, England, and they took a moment during their set to honor some local heroes you might know: The Beatles.

Fan-shot video captured the Stones playing “I Wanna Be Your Man” during their Liverpool show. The song is credited to John Lennon and Paul McCartney but first recorded and released by the Rolling Stones. notes it was the first time the Stones played the song live since 2012.

Rolling Stone reports Mick Jagger said before performing the tune, “We had decided to rehearse a special version of [Gerry and the Pacemakers’] ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone,’ but we decided instead to do a cover song written by other local lads, so we’ll do this especially for you.”

Frankly, it was a rather nice gesture from a blues cover band.
