Paul McCartney performed a set of Beatles‘ classics to tens of thousands of people in the Ukrainian capital Kiev.

McCartney opened his set with the hit ‘Drive My Car’, followed by a series of Beatles’ songs, including ‘Hey Jude’, ‘Let it Be’, ‘Back in the USSR’, and ‘Penny Lane’.

His performance was part of the Independence Concert, organised by Ukrainian billionaire businessman Viktor Pinchuk, and his first concert in the former Soviet republic.

“It’s great to be here. Thank you for coming out in the rain,” said McCartney. He then finished the show with two encores, ending on ‘Sergeant Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’.

According to reports in the Sunday Mirror last week, McCartney is on the brink of announcing dates for his last tour: a mammoth two-year stretch across Europe, North and South America, Asia and Australia.
