The NFL season is just around the corner, but the players are still finding time to spend away from the practice field to enjoy the fruits of their stardom.  

That was the case for Rob Gronkowski, who was in the stands on Sunday night as he watched Paul McCartney perform at Fenway Park in Boston.

Despite the thousands of people that were there, the 6'5", 16 stone "Gronk" cuts a noticeable figure, and was welcomed up on stage to rock out with Sir Paul himself as he played 'Helter Skelter'. He even leaned into the mic to give everyone a quick blast of his vocal skills, and was pretty decent, even if it was just a short snippet.

This was a rather more tame affair than the New England star's party boat cruise which took place at the end of the season, which he described as the "most turnt up event ever."
