Paul McCartney returned to the Ed Sullivan Theatre in New York, 45 years after the Beatles made their US television debut there.

This time, McCartney put on an outdoor show on top of the theatre's marquee for thousands of fans.

The performance was shown during the former Beatle's first appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman.

The Beatles made their American television debut on The Ed Sullivan Show on February 9, 1964.

McCartney opens a US tour on Friday at Citi Field, which is the New York Mets stadium that opened this year.

Their previous home, Shea Stadium, was also where the Beatles performed for a sold-out crowd of screaming fans in 1965.
