Paul McCartney played a selection of songs by The Beatles that have never before been performed live during the opening night of his world tour.

The singer played 'Your Mother Should Know', 'Being For The Benefit Of Mr Kite!', 'Lovely Rita' and 'All Together Now' for the first time ever during the gig in Belo Horizone, Brazil on Saturday (May 4). You can watch fan-shot footage of the gig below.

McCartney also surprised the 55,000 in attendance by opening with 'Eight Days A Week' – a song he hasn't played since the Fab Four played it for the first and only time in 1965 – and 'We Can Work It Out', which hasn't been included in his set since his Glastonbury performance in 2004. Wings tracks 'Listen To What The Man Said' and 'Hi Hi Hi' also made it into his solo setlist for the first time.

Belo Horizonte was picked as a stop on McCartney's 'Out There' tour after local fans started a petition on Facebook to get the singer to play the city. At the end of his show McCartney got the girls up on stage from the audience who organised the petition and thanked them for their support.
