Paul McCartney Performs At NYC's Grand Central Terminal
Paul McCartney gave fans in New York City a little treat to mark the release of his new album Egypt Station.
Around 200 people, ranging from close friends to total strangers, filled Vanderbilt Hall — a chamber off the main commuter concourse of Grand Central Terminal. Meryl Streep, Chris Rock, Amy Schumer, Jimmy Fallon and Jon Bon Jovi were all there, according to Rolling Stone.
The former Beatle was filming a YouTube livestream concert and wanted to make sure it went smoothly, so he gave the crowd instructions. His plan was to begin the broadcast alone, with the audience in complete silence. “Then I’ll just move a little more over this way and sing, ‘Hey Jude…'” he explained. “And you’ll sing, ‘Don’t make it bad…’ And that’s your big moment!” Only, that was its only moment. Aside from the intro tease, he didn't play the iconic song.
The living legend of course was there to promote his new album, but the special show's set list only contained a few Egypt Station songs — relying mostly on classics.
