There aren't many things that Paul McCartney hasn't done in his lengthy career -- but this weekend, he checked something else off of his "first time" list.

The 70-year-old former Beatle performed at the Barclays center in Brooklyn, New York on Saturday, June 8 -- for the first time. The famed musician rocked the house for around 16,000 fans at the venue.

According to Billboard, the British rocker wowed the audience with a 36-song set that featured his hit singles from across the decades, including "I've Just Seen a Face," "And I Love Her," "Yesterday," "Blackbird" and his 1960s hits "Lovely Rita" and "Your Mother Should Know" (Check out the full setlist below).

McCartney was in town for his "Out There" tour, which kicked off its U.S. leg in May. The performance marked the musician's first stop in the Big Apple since he took part in the 12-12-12 benefit concert for Superstorm Sandy victims in December.

"Who's getting #OutThere with Paul in Brooklyn tonight?" his official Twitter account read.

The Barclays Center, which opened its doors in September 2012, is known for housing the NBA team Brooklyn Nets and will soon be home of the NHL team New York Islanders. The center also houses Jay-Z's popular 40/40 club and sees high-profile performers such as Beyonce and Barbra Streisand passing though.
