About

As part of the filming of the documentary “In The World Tonight“, Paul McCartney played two songs on acoustic guitar on the roof of the building of MPL Communications (his publishing company), as a reminiscence of the 1969 rooftop concert with The Beatles. Unfortunately, this performance barely appears in the final version of the documentary.

The Associated press reported that Paul has been performing his two upcoming singles “Young Boy” and “The World Tonight“. The concert lasted 20 minutes.

Geoff Baker, Paul’s publicist, is quoted saying “There were quite a few people gathered below listening to him playing live on his guitar. There was amplification so people down below could hear him. Several of them were rather mystified but Paul really enjoyed himself. It certainly brought back memories for him”.

When told that there’s a crowd on the streets listening to him, Paul replied with “I know, I’ve done it before“.
