I was hoping he'd play "In Liverpool" and "Penny Lane." And sprinkle in more surprises, like a couple new different ones from Egypt Station. Some locals praised the setlist though, and his singing, and that's good. Spectacular stage lighting and stage ! "Wonderful Christmastime" was quite a show all in itself. Two more big gigs coming up very soon in Glasgow and London
Just speculating, but part of it is...maybe it blows his mind knowing that the Beatles and Shakespeare are a big part of what put England on the cultural radar. Something like that. England wasn't considered all that "cool" until Swinging London in the Sixties and the Fabs were a huge part of the scene. Perhaps they kick started it, so to speak, when they got so popular worldwide and furthered the cause and style of "rock music." Even more than Elvis did. But what the hell do I know, LOL.
Paul McCartney Talks Beatles Secrets, New Album & More for iHeartRadio's 'Inside the Studio': Listen
Thanks for posting! Nice to hear how Paul celebrated Egypt Station's debut at #1. Also enjoyed hearing Paul describe his creative processes not only for songs on Egypt Station but throughout the years as well.
I like the video alot. It's simple with the monochrome colours, funny and fun, cool concept with the characters and costumes, Paul is great in it (i think he acts really good as the doctor), Emma is brilliant in it with all the faces and expressions. Conceptually its his best music video / short imo.
He thinks new video projections are freshening up.
McCartney: What we're doing now is freshening up the show, trying things like new video projections. We get a lot of fans who have been to the show before, so I'm conscious of trying to keep it fresh for them. We have a couple of people who've been over 100 times... all of us in the band and crew can't believe these people want to keep coming back. We love that they do, but you put yourself in that position, you think, "Would I want to go to 100 shows of the same person?" But we're very glad they do.
