Paul lets fans meet The Beatles...Rock Band

When Paul McCartney played the Coachella Festival last Friday, he did more than put on a thrilling, career-spanning performance of hits: he unveiled the first footage from the upcoming Beatles: Rock Band game.

While McCartney and his band played Got To Get You Into My Life, concertgoers might have stared at the video screens, thinking, "Hey, I've never seen this Beatles footage before" - and, in fact, they hadn't. It was The Beatles in animated Rock Band form.

This has been confirmed on Paul McCartney's official website:

"It was a night of firsts and was the unexpected, unannounced world premiere of the images from the coming Beatles Rock Band game which played on vast screens throughout Got To Get You Into My Life."

In our opinion, it looks pretty great. Along with the remastered Beatles catalogue, now we really can't wait for September.
