Crowds packed Grand Central Terminal on Friday for a chance to see Sir Paul McCartney play a not-so-secret pop-up show to promote his new album, Egypt Station.

The former Beatle played for a few hundred select winners and the thousands who tuned into a live stream on his YouTube channel. The show was supposed to start at 8 p.m. but was about 30 minutes delayed. McCartney played for more than 90 minutes.

This is the two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee's second so-called secret gig in New York City. He performed in times square five years ago.

Limited edition Egypt Station MetroCards have been on sale at Grand Central all week.
