Thread: Paul McCartney?

  1. #1

    Paul McCartney?

    Just saw that he has a presale tomorrow for Fenway on July 9th. I will be at the doctor so not sure how well I can use the Red Sox site off my iphone.

    Just wondering does anyone think he will come to Yankee Stadium? I believe he did two years ago but wondering if he would do it again since it appears he will be starting another tour.

    Rumors are that he may do Giants/Metlife Stadium. Only Billy Joel played the old Yankee Stadium/Shea/Giants Stadium (Joel said it was his :hat trick") and Macca may want to be the first to play all 3 new ones.

    There's a block of open days in September where I believe the Yankees will fit another concert in. Who knows who it will be.

    Guinness World Records described McCartney as the "most successful composer and recording artist of all time", with 60 gold discs and sales of over 100 million albums and 100 million singles, and as the "most successful songwriter" in United Kingdom chart history
    Paul McCartney played his first of two shows at Yankee Stadium Friday night (7/15). He does it again tonight. More about both shows is coming later, but it's worth nothing that Paul played "The Night Before" for the first time ever on Friday.

    Paul is a dead man. Miss him! Miss him! Miss him!

    All of this and yet he can't read music......plays by ear, like me. Where did I go wrong?

    He's going to be in DC July 12th. Tickets are around $60, which is a lot cheaper than some of the other scheduled concerts.

    His websites don't say. He is mixing arena shows and stadium shows. he is pricing his shows much lower than the Rolling Stones.... rumors are only rumor. the fact is Presales start at 9am today for Brooklyn.

    You didn't really buy that "cranberry sauce" nonsense, did you?

    The evidence is incontrovertible (like the first to conquer living space, Castro Convertible).

    I pulled 4 in row 1 of the upper deck at 9 am cost me $110 each. Of course my parents claimed them so I can't flip them for a nice profit

    I've always thought that there were SO many clues that it was not a coincidence. George Martin and John Lennon were spoofing on Paul because he was artistically dead.

    Well, he still had "Helter Skelter" in him. But your point still stands.

    It may be 'folksy', but 1977's MULL OF KINTYRE was the first UK single ever to sell 2 million copies and was the best sellign sone in UK history until 1985's Do They Know it's Christmas.

    Sure, he doesn't pop out songs like "Here, There and Everywhere" anymore...but his last tour ended up in Edmonoton with a 38 song concert. The guy is 70; see him while you can.

    (I actually regret not seeing Michael Jackson when I could have)
