Considering the marathon shows he's put on every night of his current Out There World Tour, it's hard to believe Paul McCartney turns 71 today. Yet the former Beatle is indeed in his golden years and thankfully for us is playing with the energy of men half his age.

We're celebrating Macca's birthday by presenting an outstanding, "instant classic" show he played at Mexico City's Zócalo de la Ciudad de México on May 10, 2012. All in all, McCartney and his amazing backing band treat the crowd to 40 songs from his Beatles, Wings and solo careers. There's even a touch of local flavor when Mariachi Gama 1000 emerges to add flair to "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da." And yes, he does perform "Birthday."

We recommend checking out the whole show, but if you're looking to skip around check out the cool outro jam tacked on to "I've Got A Feeling," the synth'd out "Nineteen Hundred and Eighty-Five," the three-guitar attack on "Helter Skelter" and a rare cover of John Lennon's "Give Peace A Chance" that comes out of "A Day In The Life."
