McCartneys live shows have reached a new level of status in recent
years, garnering unprecedented reviews from fans and critics alike.
Hes pushed boundaries, performed to millions and made global news with
monumental shows including performances in Moscows Red Square, outside
of the Coliseum in Rome, the largest outdoor show ever in the Ukraine,
his first performance in Tel Aviv and a live performance transmitted
to a NASA space station. The Up and Coming dates, which kicked off in
late March, are McCartneys first U.S. shows since his Summer Live 09
Tour, which was prefaced by a triumphant sold-out headline set at the
2009 Coachella festival and a surprise Late Show with David Letterman
mini-concert on the marquee of the Ed Sullivan Theater (inside which
The Beatles made TV history decades ago) that drew throngs packing
Broadway from Columbus Circle to Times Square. Summer Live 09 began in
earnest with an already legendary inaugural run of shows at New Yorks
CitiField Stadium, the site of the former Shea Stadium where The
Beatles played the 1965 concert that set the precedent for the
modern-day stadium rock show. The CitiField shows have since been
immortalized on the gold-certified Good Evening New York City CD/DVD,
released last year by Hear Music/Concord.
As the show moved towards its climax, they pulled
off an incredible version of Paperback Writer - all harmonies present
and correct - followed by an emotional A Day in the Life and a
literally explosive Live and Let Die during which a blitz of fireworks
soared into the night sky, high above the park.
McCartney didn't put a foot wrong. If only
everything English was so reliable...
News Of The World
Fireworks, flames and the deafening bang
of expensive pyrotechnics would normally be the most dazzling aspect
of any rock show. But this is no ordinary gig and tonight even the
stunning special effects that accompany the stonking version of 'Live
and Let Die' that comes towards the end of this incredible 36 song set
take second place to the calibre of the tracks themselves.
Paul McCartney performed like a
man one-quarter of his age before an adoring crowd at a packed Air
Canada Centre last night. For the first of two concerts he returns to
the ACC tonight the living legends stamina was absolutely stupefying.
He seemed to turn back the hands of time during a nearly three-hour
marathon that featured 36 songs and nary a sip of water between them.
Over the course of nearly three hours and
three-dozen songs in a set brimming with solo hits and Fab Four
jewels, McCartney and his seasoned, strong four-piece band could
basically do little wrong. What might have been the biggest surprise
though was not how the songs have stood the test of time but perhaps
just how well McCartney stood up vocally to the rigours of delivering
the parade of singles.
College Times (Phoenix)
It's still shocking to see
that after 50 years in the music industry, he has barely gained a
pound since his youth and still has the energy and agility of a
20-year old. Even more surprising is his obvious adoration for playing
live shows and warmly interacting with fans.
I'm not afraid to say that this is the best live show I have ever
seen.....As one man put it as he was walking out, 'I'm not sure we
paid enough for that show.' I saw it with my own two eyes. Paul
McCartney is human. But just barely.
If anyone could be excused for having a
rock star's distant, aloof persona, it would be Paul McCartney. But
that's simply not him; he exudes a genuine likability and unforced
charm that flattens any barriers between him and a live audience. And
Tuesday's fantastic show also was an example of how music - certain
music - can bridge cultural and generational chasms.
But a show like this is critic-proof, plain and simple. Anyone who
would quibble about it is doing so for quibbling's sake.
McCartney is rolling out a marathon performance: 38
songs over the course of two hours and 45 minutes. There are no breaks
for him to rest his voice, no theatrics beyond some videos filled with
arty or nostalgic imagery, and none of the bouncy pop that earned his
critical complaints in the 1980's and 90's. It's as raw as we have
ever seen McCartney.
St Joseph News Press (Kansas) McCartney gave the adoring
15,000-plus attendees three hours of music spanning his incomparable
career with The Beatles, Wings and his solo work. The show included
two encores and was all performed with a near-inhuman amount of
effortless endurance. Between the man, the songs and the show itself,
it became something you were guaranteed to tell your grandkids about.
American Songwriter (Nashville) A Paul McCartney concert makes up
for every bad show you've ever seen in your life. Seriously.
