Paul McCartney sings unperformed Beatles tracks on tour - watch

Several Beatles songs that have never before been performed before were given their live debut by Paul McCartney on the opening night of his world tour.

McCartney played "Your Mother Should Know", "Being For The Benefit Of Mr Kite", "Lovely Rita" and "All Together Now" for the first time ever during the gig in Belo Horizone, Brazil on Saturday (May 4). You can watch fan-shot footage of the gig below.

Wings tracks "What The Man Said" and "Hi Hi Hi" also made it into his solo setlist for the first time.
