Paul McCartney gives a concert at the Grand Central in New York

A surprise concert by Paul McCartney took place at Grand Central Terminal on Friday night

Passengers with tickets to leave the Grand Central Terminal in New York heard a special serenade on Friday night, and Paul McCartney took over a corner of the majestic axis of a concert.

Only guests such as Jon Bon Jovi, Meryl Streep, Amy Schumer, Kate Moss and Chris Rock were left behind black curtains to see the stage, but everyone could hear a set of 24 songs that spanned more than 50 years of music.

It was a trick to promote a new album called & # 39; Egypt Station & # 39 ;. McCartney said he was wondering, "What's the coolest season we could think of?" and settled on the Manhattan landmark.

The band was placed under a candelabrum and in front of a giant clock, right next to the entrance to 42nd Street.

Despite the gray stripes on his famous mop top, the 76-year-old former Beatle was fighting.

Performed family successes like & # 39; Let it Be & # 39 ;, Can not Buy Me Love & # 39 ;, A Hard Day & # 39; s Night & # 39; and & # 39; Lady Madonna & # 39; for about 300 lucky fans who could get tickets.

He also delved into his songbook of "I've Got Feeling", & # 39; Hi, hello & # 39; and & # 39; 1985 & # 39;

While playing three songs from his new album, McCartney did more with the 50-year-old white album. The sweaty and dancing crowd hardly cared about the time travel.

McCartney may be the most famous musician in the world, but he is also human. Seemingly nervous as he stood on a riser in the middle of the audience with an acoustic guitar for a song, he passed the words to & # 39; Blackbird & # 39; not once but twice, starting again on both occasions.

The fans of the surroundings, famous and not famous, knew all the letters and persuaded it.

"I know this song," he said in frustration. & # 39; I wrote it! & # 39;

Before singing the first Beatles single, "Love Me Do," McCartney told about his nerves by singing the chorus and that he can still hear it in his voice when he listens to the recording.

He advanced half a century and talked about a writing session with Kanye West. After a few days in the studio, I was not sure I even had a song.

A few months later, West sent him a copy of & # 39; 4, 5 Seconds & # 39; with Rihanna in the main voice.

"I called him and I asked him:" Am I in this song? "McCartney said, and West said he included his guitar." In Grand Central, McCartney claimed it.

Some members of the Beatles extended family were available. Sean Lennon, the son of McCartney's late partner, was in the audience. So was McCartney's wife, Nancy Shevell, and he dedicated the song & # 39; My Valentine & # 39 ;.

Giles Martin, the son of veteran Beatles producer George Martin, was handling the sound of the concert.

For a new song about bullying, McCartney invited two women from the audience to tell their stories about the mistreatment received. "I scoffed at being a Beatles fan," said one of them.

That earned him a hug from the Beatles.

McCartney is famous for his performance. In 2009 he appeared on top of The Ed Sullivan Theater as part of the David Letterman Show.

In 1969, he and The Beatles became famous on the roof of the Apple building on Savile Row in London.
