Paul McCartney pops up with another surprise performance this week

PAUL McCARTNEY:  Yet another surprise performance this week

Paul McCartney did his third intimate show since announcing his new album, Egypt Station, which will be released on September 7th.

McCartney and his band turned in a 26-song set this afternoon (Thursday) at the Cavern Club in Liverpool, home to more than 300 shows by The Beatles in the early '60s. After the show, he said, "It was fabulous and brought back loads of beautiful memories and reminded me of where we started."

Those lucky enough to get a ticket were told that they weren’t allowed to use their cellphones. This of course didn’t stop some folks, so Paul stopped the show during the first song, Eddie Cochran's “Twenty Flight Rock.” "You’ve all been told not to take photos," he said. "You’re taking them, and you’re taking them, and it’s putting me off! So, you know, play by the rules, man!"

After the song he realized he may have come on a bit too strong and tried to soften it by saying, "I went to a Prince concert and he really was serious about that. He wouldn’t start, you know. Put ‘em down! You know what I’m saying?”

The original Cavern closed in 1973 and the cellar was filled in as part of the construction of the Merseyrail underground system. A new Cavern was built in the '80s with many of the original bricks. It reopened in 1984, and McCartney performed there in 1999, in a show that was captured for the film Live at the Cavern Club.
