Terry Sheridan of 1010 WINS reported that there was mixed crowd featuring people in their 50’s and 60’s with adult children and in some cases grandkids.

“He could sing the alphabet and I would be happy,” said one fan.

McCartney is no stranger to the Big Apple. He first performed at Shea Stadium in 1965 (he returned in 2008). The former Beatle was also a part of the Oct. 2001 Concert for New York City at Madison Square Garden, and hit the stage at Radio City Music Hall also in 2009.
