“Paul, it was so incredible of you to give us a glimpse into your life when we back together in Liverpool,” Corden told McCartney in the Los Angeles studio. “So I thought I’d return the favor to show you the place where I became a huge success… Welcome to the Late Late Show production office!”
While McCartney’s Liverpool trek was exciting – with visits to his childhood home and other historic spots as well as a pub show that featured the debut of new music – Corden’s tour leaned toward the mundane: The late-night host introduced the Beatles legend to a show accountant, visited the writers room and the editing suite.
Corden capped off the tour in the break room, where he schooled McCartney on his sandwich’s peanut and butter and jelly ratio. Rather than continuing the tour, the duo instead formally announced Carpool Karaoke: When Corden Met McCartney Live From Liverpool, an hour-long primetime special featuring never-before-seen footage and extra performances from the segment.
Carpool Karaoke: When Corden Met McCartney Live From Liverpool will air August 20th at 8 p.m. EST on CBS.
