VIDEO: Paul McCartney Performs For The Queen
Sir Paul McCartney was one of the many famous faces to take the stage at the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Concert. The former Beatle, showing his British pride with a Union Jack guitar, Union Jack suspenders and a sports coat lined with … the Union Jack (what else?), closed the Jubilee concert with four Beatles hits.
McCartney opened his short set with “Magical Mystery Tour” before launching into “All My Loving.” The legend then took a seat at the piano — when Elton John had set just minutes before — and played “Let It Be.” McCartney then sang one of his solo tunes, “Live And Let Die” and closed the show with the uptempo “Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da,” while all of the previous performers danced on stage, side-by-side with the Beatle.
The singer even poked a bit fun at Her Majesty. “She asks that when the festivities are over that you please leave in an orderly fashion,” McCartney jokingly told the crowd. “Or she will be forced to unleash the Corgis.”
McCartney also recently announced that he’ll be the closing act at the London 2012 Olympic opening ceremony.
