PAUL ROCKS NASSAU VETERANS MEMORIAL COLISEUM

By Posted on 0 7

Rock could not ask for a better senior statesman than Paul, who packed the best of nearly six decades of his legendary career into his “One on One” tour stop at Nassau Coliseum Tuesday night, even bringing out Billy Joel for part of the encore.

For his first Long Island show in 15 years, the 75-year-old Paul rolled through almost three hours of memories with no break, brimming with energy as he delivered everything from “In Spite of All the Danger” from his pre-Beatles band The Quarrymen to “FourFiveSeconds,” his collaboration with Kanye West and Rihanna.
“I’ve got a feeling we’re going to have some fun,” he said before a crisp version of “Can’t Buy Me Love,” buoyed by the harmonies of his exceptional four-piece backing band.


Paul was in fine voice and even better spirits, telling stories of his past and even offering some insight into his songwriting process as he showed how The Beatles classic “You Won’t See Me” was born.
Paul also explained how he wrote “Blackbird” to offer hope to those in the South during the Civil Rights movement of the ‘60s, before delivering a gorgeous version of the classic alone atop at 20-foot platform
“We know which songs you like. the place lights up like a galaxy of stars with your phones,” he said, joking about fans’ love of older material. “When we play a new song, it’s like a black hole.”
As he has for years, Paul pays tribute to John and George with tender remembrances, as well as his late wife, Linda, and producer George Martin.

Paul, who lives in East Hampton with wife Nancy Shevell, dedicated “My Valentine” to her.
But Paul still manages to bring plenty of surprises. Joel, wearing his Hicksville High School baseball cap, was all smiles as he joined Paul for raucous versions of “Get Back” and “Birthday.” Paul also threw in the bit of Jimi Hendrix’s “Foxy Lady” at the end of “Let Me Roll It” and the poignant falsetto and hip-shaking he added to the end of “And I Love Her.”


No matter what style of music he plays, Paul— who returns to Nassau Coliseum on Wednesday, the last of his six area shows this month — is the portrait of a man enjoying where he has been in his life and looking forward to where he is heading.

PAUL AND EMMA STONE JAM AT ALAN CUMMING’S NEW CLUB

By Posted on 0 19

Nightlife impresario Daniel Nardicio and actor Alan Cumming promised all kinds of only-in-New-York magic when they opened their East Village venue, Club Cumming, last week.
And last night they proved they were true to their word, as Sir Paul McCartney and Oscar winner Emma Stone joined Alan on stage for a little singalong.

After wrapping up another show at Barclays Center, Paul relocated to the East Village of Manhattan to make a surprise appearance at actor Alan Cumming’s club and sing some karaoke songs with Emma Stone, Cumming and others while partying the night away in a shirt that said “I SAW PAUL MCCARTNEY IN BROOKLYN.”
