Paul McCartney Plays Hollywood Boulevard

Paul McCartneyIt’s been almost 45 years since The Beatles gathered on a London rooftop to play their last show. But Paul McCartney is still at it.

The 71-year-old performed a 15 song set on Hollywood Boulevard Monday night. About ten thousand people showed up for the performance which took place right after McCartney’s appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

McCartney played three songs from his upcoming album New, including the single of the same name — but fans still got to hear some more familiar tunes. McCartney played Beatles classics such as “Lady Madonna,” “Day Tripper,” and “Let it Be” before closing with “Hey Jude,” which he encouraged fans to sing along with. He also played a few songs from his post-Beatles band Wings, including “Band on the Run” and “Jet.”

McCartney has spent most of the year on his Out There world tour. He made a stop at Fenway Park in July, playing more than three dozen songs and employing extravagant pyrotechnics and lighting in a concert that lasted almost three hours.

New, which comes out in the US on October 15, will be McCartney’s sixteenth solo studio album. It follows 2007’s Memory Almost Full which proved to be wildly successful. Certified gold by the RIAA, it has sold more than two million copies worldwide since its release. It was also nominated for four Grammys, including for Best Pop Vocal Album where it lost to Amy Winehouse’s Back to Black.
