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.
