During the special, James Corden becomes emotional and sheds tears when he shares a memory of his father and his late grandfather playing music by McCartney and The Beatles for him. Corden told McCartney that if his grandfather were alive today, he would have gotten a huge kick out of his segment with McCartney. Also during the segment, Corden and the music legend travel around and visit fans, as well as iconic areas mentioned in some of McCartney’s songs, like “Penny Lane”. The two also visit McCartney’s childhood home and McCartney takes Corden on a tour through his memories in the house.
The two even visit a pub that McCartney used to play at before he was famous. The locals definitely got a surprise, as McCartney dropped in.
