Paul McCartney announced on Twitter that he is throwing a free concert in Times Square today. The former Beatles frontman announced his impromptu gig just one hour before the show. The concert started at 1 p.m.
McCartney is full of surprises these days: Yesterday, he threw an impromptu show and Q&A at a school in Astoria. He is promoting his album, "New," which comes out on Oct. 15.
Wow! Really excited to be playing New York Times Square at 1pm this afternoon!— Paul McCartney (@PaulMcCartney) October 10, 2013
