It’s no surprise that people all over the world love the music of Paul McCartney, and The Beatles alike. Still touring after all these years, McCartney is just now making his way to certain parts of the world for the very first time, including the country of Ecuador.

Playing his first ever show in the Ecuadorian city Quito on Monday, April 28th, locals welcomed Paul’s presence to the city in the most extraordinary fashion.

According to Ultimate Classic Rock, the city of Quito showed Sir Paul some love by creating a giant replica of the album artwork from his 2013 release New on the side of Pichincha Mountain. Local authorities and the Ecuadorian Beatles fanclub got together to place the iconic logo high enough that it could be seen by much of the city the mountain overlooks.

Macca was even impressed enough to tweet out a photo of the sight earlier this week.

At over 9,000ft above sea level, Paul’s concert in Quito also marks the highest show he’s ever played.

His ‘Out There’ tour continues on next month with stops in Costa Rica, Japan and Korea. He kicks off the U.S. leg of the tour on June 14th, with a stop at Dodger Stadium in LA on August 10th.
