Paul Simon brought out the Grateful Dead's Bob Weir on stage at his closing set for Outside Lands Festival, San Franscisco.

Paul Simon reminisced his time in the city's Haight-Ashbury district in the '60s and Monterey Pop Festival in '67 to the crowd before surprising thousands of attendees by welcoming Weir to the stage to cover Simon & Garfunkel's 'The Boxer'.

"... we've known each other ever since [Monterey Pop Fest]. But actually, this is our first duet," Simon told the crowd.
