Where will Paul McCartney turn up next? After showing up for a surprise gig at a high school in Queens Wednesday, Macca shocked the lunchtime crowd in Times Square yesterday with a 15 minute performance on the street.
Anyone who follows McCartney on twitter wasn't completely surprised. About an hour before his performance, Paul tweeted "Wow! Really excited to be playing New York Times Square at 1pm this afternoon!"
A woman working in a nearby building told WCBS 880 “Somebody in my office saw that he had sent out a tweet, and we all just dropped everything and ran down the stairs!”
So, why such a short performance? Paul told the crowd, “I’m only allowed 15 minutes up here,” he said. “Mr. Andy Warhol predicted I would get 15 minutes of fame. This is it.”
