McCartney night of Beatles classics

Paul McCartney belted out a song list laden with Beatles tunes before a pumped-up crowd at a free concert as part of Quebec City's 400th anniversary celebrations.

McCartney opened the show with his Wings-era hit Jet and greeted the French-speaking crowd in their native language.

The crowd erupted and the band turned it up a notch by ripping into the Beatles classics Drive My Car and All My Loving and his 2007 song Only Mama Knows.

Organisers estimated around 200,000 people watched the outdoor show on the Plains of Abraham.
