For those of you who are interested in it, here is the trumpet part from the above two
Obviously it's hard to recreate the sound of a trumpet's valves on guitar, so it doesn't
exactly right, and it's minus the harmony trumpet, but these are the root notes played.

the outro riff isn't quite right, it's:

B|---------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------3*------|
E|-3p0-0-3*--3p0-0-3*--3p0-0-3*--3p0-0---------|

The * means a harmonic, the 3 first ones, are 'tap' harmonics, gently touch the string after hitting the open note (needs distortion), the last one is a normal harmonic, play with your whammy bar a bit after you hit the harmonic.
It's not always the same, but he plays it a lot like that, the last couple of times are variations, and like what it says here.

I don't think this is from the live Wembley performance, because this is the tab I used to learn the recorded version.
