The former Beatle plays secret gig at studio…

Paul McCartney played a super-intimate show at ABBEY ROAD STUDIOS last night (July 28).

The former Beatle returned to the studio he immortalised for a special performance for Radio 2 series ‘Sold On Song’ in front of just 50 people in Studio 2.

As well as debuting eight songs from forthcoming album ‘Chaos And Creation In The Backyard’, Paul McCartney was joined by the album’s producer Nigel Godrich, and together they wrote and recorded an all-new song there – which was based on ‘Blue Suede Shoes’.

During new song ‘Fine Line’ he handed out percussion instruments to the audience and encouraged them to join in.

The setlist was:

‘Friends To Go’

‘In Spite Of All The Danger’

‘Twenty Flight Rock’

‘Things We Said Today’

‘Too Much Rain’

‘How Kind Of You’

‘Band On The Run’

‘Fine Line’

‘Lady Madonna’

‘English Tea’

‘Heartbreak Hotel’

‘Jenny Wren’

‘I’ve Got A Feeling’

‘Follow Me’


Mellotron samples / ‘Strawberry Fields Forever’

The show is due to air in September. ‘Chaos And Creation In The Backyard’ is released on September 12 via Parlophone.
