NEW YORK -- The last time Paul McCartney played at the New York Mets ballpark, he was still playing with his old band, the Beatles.

Last night, he played there solo, and it wasn't at Shea Stadium but at the Mets' new home.

Citi Field is the successor to Shea Stadium, where the Beatles played in 1965.

Last night's audience included at least one fan who'd been there then.

Patty Parker was 10 years old at the time, but still remembers it vividly, though her seat was "three rows from the top."

This time, McCartney played Beatles songs, but also his Wings and solo hits.

When he introduced "I'm Down," he said he also played it at the Shea Stadium concert.

The show marks the first-ever concert at the new Citi Field.

Billy Joel joined McCartney for his encore.

McCartney had joined Joel on stage for the last concert at Shea Stadium.
