Equipped with folding chairs and sleeping bags, hundreds of Paul McCartney fans lined the street outside a funky Hollywood record store Tuesday to secure a seat for a free show by the ex-Beatle.
McCartney is scheduled to play an all-ages concert at Sunset Boulevard’s Amoeba Music at 7:30 p.m. local time yesterday, his spokesman Paul Freundlich confirmed.
Wristbands to gain entrance were given out starting at 12:30 p.m. yesterday.
“This has not been finalized but we’re likely looking at a minimum of 300 people inside,” Freundlich said.
Released earlier this month, McCartney’s new album, Memory Almost Full, has sped up the Billboard charts and ranks No. 3.
The album, his 21st solo work, received impressive reviews from critics for its blend of nostalgia and melody.
An impromptu gig by McCartney two weeks ago at the Highline Ballroom in New York City sparked talk of a tour but McCartney has no tour plans at this time, Freundlich said.
