Paul McCartney


The former member of The Beatles, who is only allowed to be in the location for 15 minutes, plays four songs

Sir Paul McCartney surprised his fans when he announced that he would play a concert in New York on Thursday afternoon, October 10. "Wow! Really excited to be playing New York Times Square at 1 p.m. this afternoon!" he tweeted just hours before the mini concert took place. "Come on down to Times Square. It's all going to be happening there!"

During the lunchtime show, the former member of The Beatles played new songs off his latest album, "New". He kicked off his 4-track set with a live rendition of title track "New". He then continued his performance with "Save Us" and "Everybody Out There".

"I'm only allowed 15 minutes up here," the 71-year-old star told the crowd of thousands during his show. "Mr. Andy Warhol predicted I would get 15 minutes of fame. This is it." McCartney closed his show with "Queenie Eye".

McCartney's brief concert came one day after he serenaded the students of New York's Frank Sinatra School of the Arts with 13 songs from his Beatles, Wings and solo catalog. During the Wednesday show, McCartney also had a Q&A session with the students.

McCartney is currently promoting his "New" album, which is slated to drop on October 15.
