    Celebrities like Meryl Streep, Kate Moss and Chris Rock were among those in attendance for the rush-hour concert, which the former Beatle used to promote “Egypt Station,” his first solo album in five years.

    “This is quite a surprise,” Stephen McLaughlin, 57, waiting for a train to Westchester County, told The New York Post. “He’s an idol. He’s someone I grew up with. I’ve never seen him except on TV.”

    McCartney, 76, showed up at the train terminal at 5:30 p.m. The location of the concert had been a secret, but McCartney dropped hints Thursday night when he appeared on the “Tonight Show,” the Post reported.

    “It’s a surprise gig, we haven’t been telling anyone, but the album’s title is ‘Egypt Station’ so that might be a little clue there — station,” McCartney told host Jimmy Fallon. “It might be a grand show, I don’t know.”

    “Egypt Station,” McCartney’s 17th solo-album, was released Friday, WPIX reported.
