It’s been confirmed that the former Beatles star will be performing in his hometown in Liverpool today, after confirming the rumours during a sit down with Jarvis Cocker this morning.
Rumours had begun to spread since yesterday, with locals and fans speculating that a ‘secret gig’ was about to happen.

Earlier this week, Paul made the social media rounds after posting a clip on Instagram of him recreating the classic Abbey Road album cover. The legend can be seen crossing the same Abbey Road he did decades prior, with the rest of the Beatles quartet.
This won’t be the first time McCartney makes a surprise appearance on his old stomping ground. Last month, the singer joined fellow British darling, James Corden for a ‘Carpool Karaoke’ segment. While the two sat and sung the classics, and stepped out of the car to take a tour of the Beatles’ birthplace – McCartney and Corden finished off the day with a surprise appearance at a local pub.
