17:38 | Lima, Apr. 24.

The former Beatles legend Paul McCartney arrived in the Peruvian capital Limal early Thursday for his one-night concert, after wowing fans at a massive gig in Chile.
On board a private plane, the rock legend flocked to the Jorge Chavez International Airport one day ahead of his show at Lima's National Stadium on Friday night.

Five years after his first performance in the Andean nation, the English performer makes his return to Lima with his familiar favorites including classic Beatles and Wings material along with selections from his latest studio album, New.

His inaugural concert in 2009 drew a total of 49,897 fans, which set an attendance record for Lima's Monumental Stadium. 

Following his Lima event, Macca will be playing in Ecuador and Costa Rica before heading to Japan and South Korea in May. The tour then heads to the United States as part of his global "Out There" tour.  

McCartney began his current concert tour in Brazil and has visited 23 cities on three continents so far.

The native of Liverpool has sold more than 100 million albums and 100 million singles with The Beatles, and he's written or co-written 32 tracks that have reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 list.
