Paul McCartney live at Estadio Mineirão, Belo Horizonte, Brazil

Paul McCartney kicked off his Out There tour with a brand new setlist at Estadio Mineirão, Belo Horizonte, Brazil.

The concert included first live renditions for Beatles songs Being For The Benefit Of Mr Kite!, Your Mother Should Know, Lovely Rita and All Together Now. It opened with Eight Days A Week, which The Beatles performed live just once, in 1965.

Two songs by Wings - Listen To What The Man Said and Hi, Hi, Hi - were also played for the first time at a solo McCartney show, and Another Day was performed for the first time since 1993.

Towards the end of the concert four fans were brought onto the stage. Priscila Brito, 27, Luisa Mattos, 25, Camila Flores, 25 and Cecilia Cury, 21, had organised a petition to encourage McCartney to play in Belo Horizonte. McCartney publicly thanked the girls and signed Cury's Beatles tattoo.

All tickets for the concert sold out, with 55,000 people in attendance. The tour is to include dates in the US, Canada, Italy, Austria and Poland.

McCartney's band was Paul 'Wix' Wickens (vocals, keyboards, guitar, percussion, harmonica), Brian Ray (vocals, guitar, bass), Rusty Anderson (vocals, guitar) and Abe Laboriel Jr (vocals, drums).

    I was there with my wife and my 3 years old boy. That was an amazing night, we had even the chance to see Paul leaving the stadium after the sound check session, the night before.

    It was an unforgettable night for us:
