Sir Paul McCartney played his first ever show in Ecuador last night (28.04.14).

The former Beatles star took to the stage at the Estadio De Liga in Quito, 2,800 metres above sea level, making it the highest concert Paul has ever played.

To celebrate his visit, local authorities organised for a meet and greet between the musician and the Ecuadorian Beatles Fan Club, who created an impressive giant logo for his latest album 'New' on the Pichincha Mountain, an Ecuadorian landmark, which could be seen across the entire city.

The 71-year-old star performed for almost three hours and also gave a special rendition of the Beatle's hit 'All You Need Is Love' on the piano, which is being used in a global tourism advert for Ecuador.

He later took to Twitter and posted a photograph of himself carrying the flag of Ecuador on stage, along with the message: ''Ecuador - what a night! Thank you. (sic)''

Paul, who released his record 'New' last year, is currently on the South American leg of his 'Out There' tour and has also performed in Uruguay, Chile and Peru, while later this week he will also take to the stage in Costa Rica for the first time.
