Beatles legend Sir Paul McCartney performed a surprise concert in New York's Times Square to promote his latest album, called New.
Sir Paul and his band rocked up on Broadway and 46th Street, to put on a show featuring songs from the new recording.
Hundreds of fans flocked to the New York City landmark square yesterday afternoon, after 71-year-old Macca put the word out about the gig on Twitter.
The concert came a day after the former Beatle performed at the Frank Sinatra School of the Arts in Queens, New York, the day he celebrated his second anniversary with his wife, Nancy Shevell.

Sir Paul said: "Happy anniversary, baby," to Shevell before going into his latest song, New.
He said the song was inspired by his wife – drawing applause from the crowd.
The crowd at the school concert was went wild as one of the world's greatest singer-songwriters performed a 13-song set, including songs from his Beatles, Wings and solo back catalogue, including Hey Jude, Eight Days a Week and Jet.
"This beats going to class," said McCartney, who performed on the piano and the guitar along with a four-piece band.
Sir Paul also told the crowd on Wednesday, which would have been John Lennon's 73rd birthday, that he connected with Lennon through songwriting.
