Local authorities and the Ecuadorian Beatles fanclub have teamed up to create a giant monument to Paul McCartney to mark his first ever concert in the South American country.

The former Beatle last night (April 28) performed at the Estadio De Liga in Quito and to mark the occasion, the logo from McCartney's 2013 album 'New' was recreated on the Pichincha Mountain, where it could be seen from much of the city.

Taking place at 2,800 metres above sea level, the Quito show was the highest concert McCartney has ever performed. He will later this week perform in Costa Rica for the first time as the 'Out There' tour continues.
