Paul McCartney's Surprise NYC Show Is No Longer a Secret

Paul McCartney will perform a private pop-up show this evening at New York City's Grand Central Terminal.

Earlier in the week, the former Beatle had teased that he would live stream an intimate performance somewhere in the city on Friday, September 7. 

The invitation-only concert begins at 8 p.m., but the MTA announced that the 89 East 42 Street entrance at Park Avenue and 42 Street would be closed from 4 p.m. to midnight Friday. 

Grand Central Terminal's Vanderbilt Hall will be closed off to the public. 

ABC 7 New York reports that the show will be attended by 300 lucky fans. The rest of us can watch via McCartney's YouTube channel.


While the presence of McCartney and his band may slightly inconvenience some commuters, there are limited-edition MetroCards for sale at MTA vending machines and station booths at Grand Central Terminal. 

McCartney will be performing material from his brand new studio album, Egypt Station, which is available now.
