McCartney Broadcast a Concert into Space



Ex-Beatle, Paul McCartney sings to space station crews, NASA astronaut Bill McArthur and Russian cosmonaut Valery Tokarev

Former Beatle, Paul McCartney, may feel proud that he has become the first musician ever to broadcast a concert into space Sunday. American astronaut Bill McArthur and Russian cosmonaut Valery Tokarev were the two lucky guys to be treated to a live wake-up call of the Beatles classic "Good Day Sunshine," followed by "English Tea" from McCartney's latest album "Chaos and Creation in the Backyard."

On Earth, McCartney played the songs on Saturday night in front of a large audience in Anaheim, California, as part of his "US" tour. The performance was then beamed from the West Coast to the space station crew 220 miles above Earth and broadcast on NASA television, which showed live feeds from space. "I can't believe that we're actually transmitting to space!" McCartney said during the show. "This is sensational. I love it." Two thumbs up for you bro.
