NEW YORK (AP) — Paul McCartney played a private concert with a crowd that included Wall Street executives and boldface names that included Sting and Oprah.

The concert on Tuesday night was part of the Robin Hood Foundation’s annual benefit. Founded in 1988, the organization has raised more than $2 billion to combat poverty in New York’s five boroughs.

McCartney played for about two hours, with a set list that included “Jet” and “Maybe I’m Amazed” as well as a smattering of Beatles classics like “Can’t Buy Me Love.” Others in the crowd of hundreds included tennis great John McEnroe.
