Paul McCartney Crosses Abbey Road 49 Years After Iconic Album Cover Shoot Ahead of Intimate Gig

The star played a set of Beatles deep cuts and classics for an invited audience

Paul McCartney crossed the famous Abbey Road pedestrian crossing almost 49 years to the day since The Beatles’ iconic album cover was shot there.

The cover for ‘Abbey Road’ was shot on August 8, 1969, by photographer Iain MacMillan. It featured all four Beatles on the pedestrian crossing.

The star walked across the road on his way to an intimate gig at Abbey Road Studios, with daughter Mary filming the moment. Halfway across, McCartney turned and did a quick pose for the camera.

Inside the studio, the icon performed a set of Beatles deep cuts and classics for a small audience. Fans were invited to enter for a chance to be at the gig last week by recording a video and telling McCartney why they should be chosen to attend.
McCartney is set to release his new album ‘Egypt Station’ on September 7. The record was largely produced by Greg Kurstin, with OneRepublic‘s Ryan Tedder taking the helm for one track. It was recorded in Los Angeles, London, and Sussex. The first two tracks from it – ‘I Don’t Know’ and ‘Come On To Me’ – were released last month.
