After several years, I finally saw Paul McCartney: Good Evening New York City on my DVR!
16 September 2013 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

What I'm reviewing here is the one-hour televised version of this concert that was broadcast on Thanksgiving Day in 2009 and had been on my DVR for all that time until I just finished watching it. It chronicles Paul McCartney's concert at the just-opened Citi Stadium which replaced the Shea Stadium which Sir Paul had famously performed with his fellow Beatles some decades before. Many of his most famous songs-like "Yesterday", "Live and Let Die", "Band on the Run", etc.-get quite a workout from him. I especially liked the seamless editing of his song "I'm Down" segueing between his modern performance to that of him with John, George, and Ringo at the legendary Shea complete with the screaming girls in the audience! Oh, and another treat was seeing Billy Joel-who was the last performer at Shea which Paul accompanied with during that concert-come on stage to duet with him on "I Saw Her Standing There". If there's some quibble, it's the cutting of some songs' verses in this version to make room for commercials in the time allotted for broadcast. Still, I highly enjoyed this version of Paul McCartney: Good Evening New York City.
