Watch Macca Play Grand Central Station

At 76, the King Beatle is still full of surprises, as this secret show inside a usually busy NYC train station shows

 

On Friday night September the 7th, Paul McCartney and his longtime backing band–a group he’s been with longer than any other in his 60-year career in music–played a secret show in Grand Central Station to celebrate that day’s release of his latest solo LP, the excellent Egypt Station.

Me? No, I wasn’t there unfortunately. Around the time of the concert, however, I was on a Target run for my family and decided to pick up the last copy of the exclusive edition of the album the department store was carrying. We watched the concert last night as a family, and ultimately it seemed like a much nicer experience than being crammed inside a sweaty corner of Grand Central with the cream of the rock journalist cognoscenti.

In any case, this might not have been the best Macca concert of all time, but it sure was damn good fun to singalong to from the comfort of my loveseat. Enjoy it while its still up on YouTube.
