AceShowbiz - Paul McCartney played a secret gig for a handful of fans in his native Liverpool, England on Saturday, June 09.
The former Beatles star took to the stage at the Philharmonic pub, leaving 50 locals stunned.
McCartney was spotted driving around the city with The Late Late Show host James Corden in a Range Rover, suggesting Macca will be the comedian's next celebrity guest on the Carpool Karaoke segment of his U.S. talk show.
The duo also took selfies outside some of Liverpool's biggest landmarks, including Penny Lane and The Beatles statue at the Pier Head.
Sources told editors at local newspaper the Liverpool Echo TV bosses at SRO Audiences were offering local people the chance to be in the audience at the Philharmonic for a secret set from a "global superstar".
McCartney's performance reportedly included two new songs, ahead of a rumoured new album.
Sean Kennedy, who was at the gig, wrote on Twitter: "I have just seen Macca live. I'm on Carpool Karaoke. My life is complete. Thank you".
