            Yeah, didn't notice that. Hopefully we will get full concert when it streams on Monday.

              Maybe "Q&A" instead of "Queenie Eye"?

                5th-beatle:

                Maybe "Q&A" instead of "Queenie Eye"?

                Kind of like 'salsa' and 'seltzer.' (Seinfeld reference)

                  Don't think he did Queenie Eye but really interested to see if they could tackle it live. Judging from the samples that have been put up I Can Bet would really kick ass live. Grooving.

                    Set list is correct "Queenie Eye" was not played. It was in the Tony Bennett Hall, he is founder of the school and was in the audience. The kids were great! Very enthusiastic. Great little show. Kids were picked to ask questions.
                    No cameras were allowed, and was very strict!
                    The whole event was filmed and we were told was streaming on Yahoo.com

                    Only 30 radio winners, and kids and staff from school.

                    Excellent time!

                      Congrats on attending, Podgie! So was there a separate "master class" or was the performance and Q&A the extent of it?

                        Hope they appreciated it.

                              Performance and Q&A was it. It was nice that the kids asked the questions. It was really a treat for them. The MC said that the kids were told there was going to be a special show, but not told who. He said that their parents will really be surprised.

                              It was a small, intimate, hall. Very nice. The kids were great, very appreciative.

                                That is awesome!! Congratulations, couldn't happen to a nicer fan!!

                                BTW...did you find yourself in the photo?

                                  year40:Hope they appreciated it.

                                  Well, it is an arts school, so I should think most of them would appreciate it. I read as they left the auditorium, they were "na-na-na-ing" as they walked through the halls!

                                    That was a very neat thing. Hey Jude was the last song. After Paul left the stage, all the kids started "Na Na Naing" for quite a while.

                                    I am off the photo, was too far left.

                                      Charming and heart-warming

                                        Just announced on NYC radio station Q104.3 that they will broadcast the show
                                        at 12 Noon Monday October 14th. Their DJ was at the show..He said the kids were singing al0ng to every song and Paul was clearly super-thrilled to experience it all.

                                          Did Paul and the band lob in a van?

                                          How lucky were these kids?!!! And they didn't even have to pay 50p!!!!

                                            Tune in Monday, October 14 at 6pm PT/9pm ET to see Paul McCartney's Frank Sinatra School of the Arts concert stream on Yahoo

                                            The fortunate pupils at the Frank Sinatra School of the Arts in Astoria, Queens, New York, often enjoy performances by guest musicians as part of their curriculum. But these students didn't have any idea what kind of treat they were in for when they were summoned to the Tony Bennett Concert Hall the afternoon of Tuesday, October 8...until the school's principal announced that none other than Paul McCartney was going to perform a special show just for them.

                                            http://music.yahoo.com/news/mccartney-celebrates-anniversary-ny-high-school-211228218.html

                                            McCartney said, "Happy anniversary, Baby," to Nancy Shevell before going into his latest song, called "New." He said the song was inspired by his wife as the students turned to her and gushed.
