Photos, Video: Paul McCartney Shuts Down Hollywood Blvd. To Rock 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' With Old and 'New' Tunes
If you tuned in to "Jimmy Kimmel Live" Monday night you may have seen Sir Paul McCartney rock two tunes from outside the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood. But the night and the show was far more expansive, with the Wings and Beatles guitarist playing a full set for the crowd of 10,000 gathered on a shut-down Hollywood Boulevard for the free show.
Kimmel was among those who turned to superlatives when discussing the experience:
And those songs were:
“Magical Mystery Tour” (Beatles)
“Save Us” (McCartney)
“Junior’s Farm” (Wings)
“Lady Madonna” (Beatles)
“Another Day” (McCartney)
“Everybody Out There” (McCartney)
“Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da” (Beatles)
“Band on the Run” (Wings)
“Back in the U.S.S.R.” (Beatles)
“Day Tripper” (Beatles)
“Let It Be” (Beatles)
“Hey Jude” (Beatles)
Here's McCartney doing his new song, the aptly named "New," on the show:
It was a very memorable night for those in attendance, too.

If you weren't one of the lucky in the crowd, MySpace is rebroadcasting the concert. And if your commute got messed up Monday night, keep that alternate route in mind for tonight; Justin Timberlake is doing the same thing, and shutting down Hollywood Boulevard Tuesday for his "Jimmy Kimmel Live" appearance.
