Paul McCartney’s in the New York groove

Macca may be getting on a bit but he still knows how to rock and roll, as evidenced last night at his first ever concert at the legendary Apollo Theatre in Harlem, New York.

Sir Paul was at it for over two hours to an audience that included many notable faces at the event to celebrate Sirus XM radio's 20 millionth subscriber.

The former moptop was proud at being able to play the celebrated venue - once the haunt of Marvin Gaye, Sammy Davis Jr. and James Brown.

'It’s the holy grail,' he said to the assembled crowd. 'I dreamed of playing here for many a year.'

Onlookers included Kevin Bacon, comic Jerry Seinfeld and Sirus XM's shock-jock Howard Stern. Paul sung several Beatles classics including All My Loving and A Hard Days Night as well as covers of Marvin Gaye and Jimi Hendrix.

Seeing though it’s Chrismtas, he even wheeled out Wonderful Christmas Time. Luckily, the audience was spared the Frog Chorus.
