Paul McCartney Performs Live 2015

The Beatles star also played Love Me Do, which he dedicated to the late George Martin.

Paul McCartney has performed A Hard Day's Night for the first time in 51 years.

The British icon delighted fans at his gig at the Save Mart Center in Fresno, California with a whopping 38-track set, including the Beatles track which hadn't played in over half a century.

McCartney also played Love Me Do in full for the first time in his solo career, dedicating it to the late producer George Martin, known as the "fifth Beatle".

McCartney recently announced that he'd be releasing a 67-track compilation entitled Pure McCartney.

The album will feature Paul's accomplishments from 1970s onwards, including tracks from his Wings and Fireman days, and even a track taken from the 2014 video game, Destiny.

McCartney said of the release: "Me and my team came up with the idea of putting together a collection of my recordings with nothing else in mind other than having something fun to listen to."

He added: "Maybe it's to be enjoyed on a long car journey or an evening at home or at a party with friends? So we got our heads together and came up with these diverse playlists from various periods of my long and winding career.”
