Paul McCartney Played Citi Field in New York


This weekend, Paul McCartney graced the new Citi Field in New York City to play a sold out solo show.

McCartney himself made a special note paralleling The Beatles‘ first performance at Shea Stadium 44 years ago and this past weekend’s performance as a tie-in to his tour promotion. Yeah, former Beatle and rock legend Paul McCartney, you really need to push this tour: maybe hang up some fliers around Queens, make a Facebook event, post this up on your MySpace… Really pull out all the PR stops…

For this performance, McCartney played a slew of Beatles songs along with his solo and Wings music. What made an already special night even more amazing was the guest appearance of Billy Joel who joined McCartney in his first encore. The two played the duet, “I Saw Her Standing There.”
