Paul McCartney In Promo Mode From Fallon To Grand Central Station

Paul McCartney knows how to sell an album. He activated “promo mode” and has been tap-dancing ‘Egypt Station’ since the album release on Friday.

McCartney took to The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and played a few tricks on the audience, including this very funny elevator sketch.

Then it was off to Grand Central Station for the (not so) secret gig where commuters were treated to a full Paul McCartney show. The show featured a performance of ‘From Me To You’. The last time McCartney played that song live in the USA was in 1964 with The Beatles.

‘Egypt Station’ was represented with live performances of ‘Come On To Me’, ‘Fuh You’ and ‘Who Cares’.
