Paul McCartney visits The Ed Sullivan Theater

Sir Paul McCartney returned to the Ed Sullivan Theater this week 45 years after his first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show as part of the legendary group The Beatles. The performance on The Ed Sullivan Show broke The Beatles into the big time in the US.

As well as an interview with Dave, he performed on top of the Late Show With David Letterman marquee outside the theater, which looked stunning, and caused quite a stir – it looked like there were hundreds of people gathered to watch.

In the CBS.com web exclusive performance on the marquee (which lasted over 20 minutes), he performed Coming Up, Band On The Run, Let Me Roll It, Helter Skelter and Back In The USSR with his band.

It was originally thought Paul wouldn’t be performing outside because they had trouble getting the permits, but it all worked out fine in the end.

The video of the webcast performance is available on the CBS website – click here to watch.
