Paul McCartney Plays First Concert in Citi Field

McCartney also included several not-so-well-known numbers from his most recent solo albums in the set, as well as material from his latest CD Electric Arguments, which he recorded under the pseudonym The Fireman. Some unexpected songs included the Band On The Run deep cut "Mrs. Vandebilt," and "I've Got A Feeling," from the Let It Be album. But the night's ender was a familiar one -- "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (Reprise)," which McCartney then segued into Abbey Road's "The End," ensuring that the show would finish with perhaps the Beatles' most loved lyric: "And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make."

McCartney's opening act, by the way, was the up-and-coming young Irish band The Script, best known for their hit "The Man Who Can't Be Moved." Which means that technically, it was the Script who were the first act ever to play at Citi Field, not McCartney. But we won't tell him if you won't.
