A crowd of over 200,000 people saw Sir Paul McCartney perform at the Zocalo of Mexico City this past weekend.
The former Beatle took the stage a little after 9 p.m. in a red jacket and pink shirt.
The charismatic Brit repeatedly interacted with the public and said, “Tonight I will speak a little Spanish and some English.”
He sang both Beatles classics and his solo hits like “Drive My Car,” “Jet,” “Hello Goodbye,” and “Let It Be.”
He later dedicated his new song, “My Valentine,” to his current wife Nancy Shevell while projecting the music video to the audience. The music video stars Johnny Depp and Natalie Portman.
He also played the song “Blackbird,” saying he wrote the song with his “great friend John,” referring to his band mate Lennon who was assassinated in 1980. He also dedicated “Something” to former Beatle George Harrison who passed away from cancer in 2001.
In addition to the large music set, the concert had a firework display that lit up the Zocalo during his performance of “Live and Let Die.”
One of the most exciting moments of the night was when McCartney surprised the spectators. The singer was joined on stage by Mariachi Gamma 1000 for an exciting rendition of “Ob-la-di Ob-la-da.”
