Letterman Music Files | Paul McCartney Plays The Marquee
On July 15, 2009 Paul McCartney and his incredible backing band stepped onto the Ed Sullivan Theater’s marquee for a brief set of Beatles and Wings classics some of which was broadcast on that evening’s Late Show. McCartney was in fine form as he reeled off one epic song after another and even threw in a few teases along the way. The set included potent takes on “Helter Skelter,” “Back In The USSR” and other gems from McCartney’s career. While the performance wasn’t announced ahead of time, word got out quickly leading tens of thousands to assemble around the theater for the free show.
Watch footage of the set shared on the Letterman YouTube channel:
