Over the summer, Paul McCartney graced New York’s Citi Field stadium for three nights of live music reminding everyone of the night The Beatles played there (technically at Shea Stadium) in 1965 and kicked off Beatlemania. The summer concert, dubbed Good Evening New York City spanned McCartney’s career, with solo, Wings and Beatles songs – some 30 of which are on the album/CD/DVD due out on Nov. 17.
I’m not that into live concert recordings and I despise stadium shows, but word is it’s good as far as these things go. It’ll also be out on vinyl. Should be plenty of time to give it a listen before Turkey day and the announced ABC McCartney special which will include highlights from the same concert at Citi Field. Footage from the original 1965 Beatles concert will also be featured along with “interviews and personal glimpses” of McCartney. [ABC]
I can’t wait for those personal glimpses. Have you seen him make mashed potatoes?
What’s your favorite Paul McCartney song? “Hey Jude,” or maybe, “Maybe I’m Amazed?”
“Say Say Say,” or “Ebony & Ivory” perhaps?
