Sir Paul Mccartney - Sir Paul Mccartney Rocks Yankee Stadium


Sir Paul Mccartney played the first of two massive concerts as New York's Yankee stadium last night, as part of his current 'On The Run' world tour, to a rapturous response from a 100,000-strong audience. The Daily Telegraph reported that Sir Paul Mccartney had never previously played the venue, either in its modern or original incarnation, during his career which now spans six decades. MACca played for over two and a half hours and performed 35 songs, kicking things off with 'Hello, Goodbye' and closing with 'The End' - the last song ever recorded by all four of The Beatles.

MCCartney, who turned 69 last month, has already garnered rave reviews from the New York press, with the New York Times commenting: "His voice revelled in the songs, hinting at little improvisatory variations; after them, he raised his instruments overhead in a mixture of exuberance and pride in musical craftsmanship.He perseveres, and entertains, by directly reconnecting to his songs across the decades and still having fun." The New York Daily News added: "MCCartney's continued ability to perform such key material so gracefully makes his shows more than just worthy entertainment. They're a kind of public service." The ex-Beatle is currently working his way across North America, with shows in Detroit, Montreal, Chicago and Cincinnati coming up soon.
