Devotees armed with homemade banners lined the streets around Jorge Chavez International Airport in Lima to mark the arrival of The Beatles star Paul McCartney, who played his first ever show in the South American country on Monday.

In scenes reminiscent of Beatlemania in the 1960s, swarms of shouting fans ran alongside McCartney's car, prompting security guards to shove them out of the way.

McCartney, who recently announced his engagement to girlfriend Nancy Shevell, later rolled down the car window to chat to locals, greeting them by saying, "Hola, darling!"

Hundreds more fans flocked to see McCartney check in at the city's Miraflores Park Hotel, where staff put up metal barriers to contain the crowds.

The star's historic concert at the Estadio Monumental in the Peruvian capital on Monday marked his first live show of 2011.
