Paul McCartney live: Foro Sol, Mexico City, Mexico

Sir Paul McCartney performed the first of two concerts at Mexico City’s Foro Sol stadium, in front of more than 50,000 people.

The former Beatle is performing two consecutive shows in the city, the second of which is to be broadcast to residents on giant screens in a Chapultepec Park plaza.

The second date was added after this first show broke the world record for the fastest ever-selling stadium show in Mexico, breaking a previous record held by Radiohead.

Around 100 people camped outside McCartney’s hotel in the hope of seeing him in person.

The setlist was mostly identical to McCartney’s last concert, in Miami’s Sun Life Stadium on 3 April 2010, though with the addition of an apparently improvised song, ‘Shine A Light In Mexico’:
