Paul McCartney Rocks Hollywood Boulevard With a Mix of Beatles Classics & 'New' Songs: Watch
Paul McCartney performed a 15-song set Monday night on Hollywood Boulevard, mixing three songs from his upcoming "New" album with Beatles, Wings and solo classics.
His performance on the shuttered street followed an appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" in the El Capitan Theater, where he spoke about his first visit to Hollywood, meeting Frank Sinatra at Royal Albert Hall and how he has to avoid being swept up in fans' emotions while performing.
Kimmel's questions bounced from topic to topic, though he did get McCartney to say "Carnival of Light" is one possible never-released Beatles recording that could come out. He did call it "very far out" and possibly too long at 15 minutes in length.
On Hollywood Boulevard, McCartney and his band performed "Save Us," "Everybody Out There" and the first single, "New," from the Oct. 15 release on Concord in addition to the standards "Let it Be," Hey Jude" and "Band on the Run." Fans who showed up early got an extra treat as McCartney and the band performed a 12-song soundcheck around 4 in the afternoon.
Paul McCartney's setlist:
"Magical Mystery Tour
"Everybody Out There"
"Band on the Run"
"Back in the USSR"
"Let It Be"
