The BeatlesAbbey Road is famous for singles like "Here Comes the Sun," and "Come Together," but the 1969 album might be best-known for its packaging. The now-iconic cover photo features band members John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr walking across the Abbey Road pedestrian crossing. In the years since the album debuted, that walkway has become an extremely popular tourist attraction, with fans trekking to the site to recreate the scene.

It's been 49 years since McCartney crossed that road, and earlier this week, he recreated the famous walk. As Yahoo News reports, McCartney was with his daughter Mary, who photographed and filmed the musician on the crossing. He then posted the video on his Instagram account.

Mary also shared the video on her Instagram page, cleverly captioning it: "Why did the Beatle cross the Abbey Road."

After finishing up the video shoot, McCartney headed into the Abbey Road Studios, where he performed a classic Beatles set and songs from his upcoming album Egypt Station, which is scheduled to come out on September 7.

Celebrity guests at the secret performance included Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom, Stormzy, Liv Tyler, and Kylie Minogue. McCartney's fashion designer daughter Stella was also there.

McCartney also took fan questions via Instagram’s new 'Ask Me a Question' tool, and answered one popular query—Why wasn’t he wearing shoes in the original Abbey Road album cover art?

McCartney answered,"It was a very hot day and I happened to be wearing sandals like I am today, so I just kicked them off because it was so hot we went across barefoot. There was no special meaning."
