Paul McCartney

Album Notes

Good Evening New York City immortalised Paul's historic three night musical christening of New York's Citi Field, the site of the former Shea Stadium. The momentous musical experience was witnessed by more than 120,000 breathless fans and featured over thirty songs and nearly three hours from the concert experience of a lifetime. The July 2009 shows held special significance not only for McCartney but also for generations of his fans. The shows were performed on the same hallowed ground that The Beatles, in 1965, played the 34 minute show that would set the precedent for the modern day rock show 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 the classic, 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.
