In advance of his upcoming album Egypt Station, Paul McCartney returned to the scene of some of his biggest musical triumphs with The Beatles to perform a “secret show” at London’s famed Abbey Road Studios.
As Billboard reports, Sir Paul and his band performed a 23-song set for a star-studded audience, featuring four new songs from the upcoming LP, in addition to an array of Beatles hits, ranging from “Lady Madonna” to “Helter Skelter” and many more.
Among the new tracks performed was “Fuh You”, which some are speculating is the song McCartney has hinted was written about U.S. President Donald Trump. Two songs from Egypt Station have already been released, “Come On To Me” and “I Don’t Know”.
Among the stars in attendance to watch this intimate performance, reports the Daily Mail, were Kylie Minogue, Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom, and British rapper Stormzy.
Meanwhile, the 76-year-old rocker thrilled fans when he did a solo recreation of The Beatles’ Abbey Road album cover, walking across what is arguably the world’s most iconic crosswalk 49 years after he and bandmates John Lennon, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr originally walked across the street for the classic photo.
Fans shared video of McCartney walking the crosswalk:
Egypt Station is scheduled to be released on Sept. 9, with McCartney hitting the road in the fall with his “Freshen Up” tour, including four Canadian dates: Quebec City, Sept. 17; Montreal, Sept. 20; Winnipeg, Sept. 28; Edmonton, Sept. 30.
