Good Evening New York City immortalised Paul’s historic three-night musical christening of New York’s Citi Field, by the site of the former Shea Stadium. The experience was witnessed by more than 120,000 breathless fans and featured over 30 songs and nearly three hours of music. The July 2009 shows held special significance, being performed on the same hallowed ground that The Beatles, in 1965, played the 34-minute show that set the precedent for modern day rock shows and where, in 2008, Paul joined Billy Joel for the final rock show before the original stadium’s demolition. To return the favour, Joel joined Paul onstage for the first of these shows, helping out on a run through of ‘I Saw Her Standing There’. As documented on Good Evening New York City, ‘I’m Down’ from the 1965 set list was revived for the Citi Field shows, albeit this time played through a PA that was not overpowered by screaming fans – though there were still several thousand who tried.
