February 19th's DLC flies in on the Wings of Paul McCartney, as the band after the Beatles returns to World Tour with three more hits - “Junior’s Farm,” “Hi Hi Hi” and “Jet".

Finally, on February 26th you'll be able to recreate the GHWT commercials with the Bob Segar Track Pack, featuring “Old Time Rock and Roll” , "Her Strut", and a live-recording of "Get Out of Denver". You hear that Crecente?
