posted by DeWayne & Tamme - 

Paul McCartney celebrated the release of his new album, Egypt Station, Friday by doing a “surprise” show inside New York’s Grand Central Station train terminal for a few hundred contest winners as well as millions watching on You Tube.

He rolled through many of the same songs he’s long done, including “A Hard Day's Night,” “Can't Buy Me Love,” “Love Me Do,” “Blackbird,” “I Saw Her Standing There,” “Back in the USSR” and “Let It Be.”

The set included three songs from Egypt Station (“Come on to Me,” “Who Cares” and “Fuh You”) as well as three other recent numbers: “Dance Tonight” from 2007’s Memory Almost Full, “My Valentine” (2012’s Kisses on the Bottom) and his 2015 collaboration with Rihanna and Kanye West, "FourFiveSeconds."

Noticeably absent from the 27-song set were such concert standards as “Hey Jude,” “Maybe I’m Amazed,” “Yesterday,” “Live and Let Die” and “Band on the Run.”

Following these intimate pop-up shows, McCartney will begin the full-scale Freshen Up tour September 17th in Quebec.
