The former Beatle played the 'McCartney II' track at the O2 Arena on Saturday (May 23)
Paul McCartney performed at London’s O2 Arena on Saturday (May 23), playing his 1980 track ‘Temporary Secretary’ live for the first time ever.
The gig was the first of two shows at London’s O2 Arena, with the second coming on Sunday (May 24). As well as teaming up with Dave Grohl for a rendition of ‘I Saw Her Standing There’, he gave a live debut to this krautrock-inspired ‘McCartney II’ single. Watch live footage below.
Meanwhile, Paul McCartney recently discussed his recent collaborations with rapper Kanye West, describing himself as feeling “lucky” and “flattered” to be working with the hip-hop star. McCartney told The Evening Standard: “”It’s good to connect with different artists,” McCartney said. “The secret is I keep myself very open to suggestions – I still feel like I’m about 30…. I’m lucky that someone like Kanye would go, ‘Yes I would like to work with Paul McCartney’. I was quite flattered.”
McCartney previously compared collaborating with West to working with John Lennon. He told The Sun, “When I wrote with John, he would sit down with a guitar… We’d ping-pong till we had a song. [Working with West] was like that.”
