The concert was part of the Robin Hood Foundation's annual benefit. Founded in 1988, the organisation has raised more than 2 billion dollars (£1.28 billion) to combat poverty in New York's five boroughs.

Sir Paul played for about two hours with a set list that included Jet and Maybe I'm Amazed as well as a smattering of Beatles classics like Can't Buy Me Love.

Others in the crowd of hundreds included tennis great John McEnroe.
