NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess) Paul McCartney’s neverending publicity campaign for his new album Egypt Station made a whistle-stop in New York’s Grand Central Station where the artist played a surprise gig for invited guests.
Names like Jon Bon Jovi, Meryl Streep, Amy Schumer, Kate Moss and Steve Buscemi were brought behind a black curtain yesterday to watch a 24-song set by Macca in the middle of the Manhattan landmark, according to the Associated Press.
McCartney reportedly pondered a place to play, asking “what’s the coolest station we could think of?” and settled on Grand Central Station.
The band played under a chandalier and in front of the famed giant clock just off of the 42nd Street entrance.
McCartney played three songs off his new album plus hits like “Let It Be,” “Can’t Buy Me Love,” and “Lady Madonna” plus obscure hits like “1985” plus also had to restart “Blackbird” twice because he kept flubbing the lyrics, according to the AP.
“I know this song,” he said. “I wrote it.”
Also on hand were John Lennon’s son Sean Lennon and wife Nancy Shevell. Giles Martin, son of George Martin, was behind the sound board.
