A mountain in Montana has been temporarily renamed after Paul McCartney.

McCartney is currently touring the US as part of his Out There tour and performed in Missoula last night (August 5). Consequence Of Sound reports that to mark the occasion the University of Montana and city of Missoula renamed the local Mount Sentinel to Mount McCartney.

The mountain has a giant white ‘M’ on it, which officials said stood for McCartney for 24 hours.

In a statement, university president Royce C. Engstrom said, “We are thrilled to have a legend such as Paul McCartney playing in our community. This concert not only brings folks from around our great state together in Missoula, but also attracts fans from around the country. We think Washington-Grizzly Stadium is a wonderful place to host a concert of this calibre.”

News of Mount McCartney follows governors in Minnesota declaring August 2 Paul McCartney day. The inaugural Sir Paul McCartney Day coincided with the former Beatles member’s live show at the Target Field venue last week.
