From Billboard, July 23, 2018:

Paul McCartney amped up the anticipation for the Sept. 7 release of his upcoming Egypt Station album on Monday (July 23) by playing what was billed as a “secret show” at Abbey Road Studios and premiering four new songs from the album.

The set list for the Abbey Road Studios show, which took place in Studio 2 where The Beatles did much of their recording and which a McCartney spokesman confirmed was recorded for Spotify for broadcast at a later date […]

McCartney walked to the studio and then delighted fans by walking across the same zebra crossing on Abbey Road he and his Beatles mates did on Aug. 8, 1969, for their famous album cover. Videos showed the fans cheering as McCartney strolled across the street. Pictures also showed Stella McCartney, Paul’s fashion designer daughter, in attendance. […]

On July 18, a contest was published on Paul’s Twitter & Instagram official accounts to be invited in this “secret gig”. Around 20 winners were selected and occupied the front rows. The rest of the crowd may have been around 60 people, consisting of special invitees, including family (Mary, Stella, James McCartney, Paul’s wife Nancy…), friends and celebrities like Kylie Minogue, Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom, Liv Tyler, Nile Rodgers…

Spotify released “Paul McCartney & Spotify Singles: Under The Staircase” on September 14, 2018 – containing 17 audio tracks from this concert.

Before the concert, Paul made the buzz by crossing the Abbey Road street. From People, July 23, 2018:

[…] Ahead of the 49th anniversary of the release of Abbey Road, the Beatles legend, 76,  and his daughter Mary, 48, recreated its album cover in front of crowds of fans in London on Monday.

Dressed in a white shirt, burgundy pants and sandals, McCartney crossed the street outside of Abbey Road Studios to the delight of die-hard Beatles fans.

“Why did the Beatle cross the Abbey Road,” Mary hilariously captioned videos of her famous father taking a stroll. […]

While on Instagram Story, McCartney took fan questions, including one inquiry about why he wasn’t wearing any shoes for the original cover art, which was released on Aug. 8, 1969.

“It was a very hot day and I happened to be wearing sandals like I am today so I just kicked them off because it was so hot we went across barefoot. There was no special meaning,” he clarified.

From – Paul started his day at Abbey Road Studios by walking over the famous crossing and went on to perform the first in a series of intimate gigs. July 2018.
