YOU GAVE ME THE ANSWER – Charles from the UK Asks…

By Posted on 0 29

We’ve been ridiculously excited here in the office as Paul and the band have been preparing to bring their ‘One On One’ tour to Australia and New Zealand this December! This will be the first time Paul has performed in either country since 1993’s ‘The New World Tour’.

Paul said of the announcement;

“We’ve been waiting to get back to Australia and New Zealand for years and now it’s finally happening. It is very exciting. I’m really looking forward to the concerts as we’ve always had such a brilliant time whenever we’ve been before so we know we are in for a treat. Can’t wait to see you and all rock out together.”

This brings us nicely to a question from Charles in the UK, who got in touch to ask Paul:

“Do you have any favourite memories from visiting Australia and New Zealand on previous tours?”

We managed to catch up with Paul before he headed off down under!

“Thanks for your question, Charles. Yes! The welcome we got in Australia was crazy! Crazy good! People were lining the streets and it was really special. We really liked it a lot and were very pleased to get such a great reception. A funny memory was that we were always giving the thumbs up sign to everyone, you know, meaning ‘Great, thanks, good luck’. And then someone said, ‘No actually that’s a rude sign in Australia’. I’m still not sure to this day if it’s true, but I think it meant something like ‘the finger’ in America. And there was another crazy incident where one of the fans climbed up the outside of our hotel to get to our suite. That was pretty crazy and pretty dangerous and don’t do this at home! But yeah it was a great trip. And in New Zealand rubbing noses with the Maoris had to be a little high spot.”

PaulMcCartney.com: Was it just you and the guys [The Beatles] who went up and did that for the day?

PM: Yeah, there was a little ceremony where the Maoris were giving us a presentation and they were doing the dance and all the stuff. It was just nice to meet some real Maoris and then you know they said they’d like to greet you, and you do the nose, which was cool!


PAUL’S ADVICE FOR YOUNGEST AUSSIE FAN

By Posted on 0 32

HE’s back in Australia for his One on One tour. And Paul had plenty of stories to tell when he met fans at an intimate fan Q&A.

“GO to school — number one — and just be good.” That was Paul’s advice for nine-year-old Perth super-fan Harrison Haines yesterday at an intimate fan Q&A at the Regal Theatre.

“Learn a lot about the world and where there’s issues you think need changing, just be very strong and go and change them,” the 75-year-old added.

 

What about learning the guitar?

“Nah,” Paul joked.

Since learning the guitar and writing his first song at age 14, Paul has changed the world and led a remarkable life. Paul took time out from rehearsing for tomorrow’s concert at Perth’s nib Stadium — the first date of the Australian leg of his One on One world tour — to field questions from 10 lucky fans, and their guests, plucked from an online competition run by promoters Frontier Touring.

Paul shared stories about the Beatles’ first tour of Australia, writing hits with superstars Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder and Kanye West, and Martha, the Old English Sheepdog which inspired a song on the White Album.

“We had great times and the guys loved her, John (Lennon) particularly because he’d never seen me with a pet,” he said. “He’d come around to my house and there was this woolly thing licking him. That was me.”

The small contingent of fans also got up close with Paul, who left the stage at the start of question time to personally greet each of them. Many diehards could barely believe they were meeting their hero, but that didn’t stop Loredana Santoro from asking the staunch vegetarian out for a vegan meal.

“A nice stir fry,” Macca suggested before retracting the offer. “I’ve got things to do. My wife would kill me.”

Third wife Nancy Shevell reportedly flew in with Paul on Monday.

 

While on previous visits he went horse-riding and swimming with dolphins, the superstar has not yet found time for sightseeing. But he did have a jam on Wednesday with former Shadows guitarist Hank Marvin, who lives in Perth.

Asked what fuels his passion for touring, Paul quipped “sex and drugs”.

“It’s just because I love it,” he added. “I’ve loved it since I was 14 when I wrote my first song.

“I don’t need to go touring. The answer is, and I heard Ringo (Starr) say it, it’s what we do.”

Paul said that while the early days of Beatlemania were exciting, the screaming female fans became a drag.

“It got a bit much because we couldn’t hear what we were doing, and that’s one of the big differences now.

“We go louder than the audience now.”

They certainly do. Following the 20-minute grilling, Paul strapped on his famous Hofner violin-shaped bass and warned “Now, we don’t rehearse quiet”.

Then, with his long-serving four-piece band, the legend tore into Beatles classics Drive My Car, Lady Madonna and I’ve Just Seen a Face, plus a rowdy rendition of Wings’ favourite Junior’s Farm.

Paul plays six shows in Australia on the One on One tour, which kicked off in the US in April last year and wraps in New Zealand on December 16.
