Paul McCartney wows New York

Paul McCartney

The last time Paul McCartney played at the New York Mets ballpark, he was still playing with his old band, The Beatles.

Last night, he played solo, and it wasn’t at Shea Stadium but at the Mets’ stadium.

Citi Field is the successor to Shea Stadium, where the Beatles played on August 15th 1965.

It was the first concert to be held at a major outdoor stadium and set records for attendance and revenue generation.

Billy Joel joined McCartney for his encore. McCartney had previously joined Joel on stage for the last concert at Shea Stadium.

The show marks the first-ever concert at the new Citi Field.

Mr. McCartney’s Citi set list:

“Drive My Car”
“Only Mama Knows”
“Flaming Pie”
“Got To Get You Into My Life”
“Let Me Roll It” (with a “Purple Haze” coda)
“The Long and Winding Road”
“My Love”
“Here Today”
“Dance Tonight”
“Calico Skies”
“Mrs. Vandebilt”

“Something” (on ukulele)
“I’ve Got a Feeling”
“Paperback Writer”
“A Day in the Life”/“Give Peace a Chance”
“Let It Be”
“Live and Let Die”
“Hey Jude”
“Day Tripper”
“Lady Madonna”
