Paul McCartney Logo Recreated on Ecuadorian Mountain

After all these years, it’s difficult to believe there’s a nation on Earth that Paul McCartney hasn’t played, but he’s still checking off spots on the map — and they’re awfully excited to see him.

For proof, look no further than Pichincha Mountain, which overlooks Quito, the Ecuadorian city where McCartney took his current run of ‘Out There’ tour dates on April 28. To commemorate his first-ever show in Ecuador, NME reports that local authorities and the Ecuadorian Beatles fan club collaborated to put a giant reproduction of the distinctive logo on McCartney’s ‘New‘ album across the mountain, up high enough so “it could be seen from much of the city.”

As the NME report notes, McCartney’s Quito show wasn’t just his first Ecuadorian concert; at nearly 9,200 feet above sea level, it also marks the highest show he’s ever performed. (Insert your own marijuana joke here.) He’ll continue marking firsts on May 1, when the ‘Out There’ tour arrives in San Jose, Costa Rica — his first-ever Costa Rican show.

North American fans will get their own share of the Sir Paul excitement starting this summer, when the tour touches down in Lubbock, Texas on June 14 for a run of U.S. dates that’s currently scheduled to conclude with his historic appearance at San Francisco’s soon-to-be-shuttered Candlestick Park.
