From paulmccartney.com, December 2, 2009:

On Wednesday (25th November) Paul recorded an MTV Zane Lowe Meets TV special, which is due to air on MTV1, MTV2 and VH1 throughout December (check website for exact dates coming soon). As usual, Zane gave a great interview and he and Paul discussed Pauls hectic year and talked about his Citi Field show in July and the imminent tour. After finishing at MTV Paul was off to attend a screening event for the launch of the DVD, which was being held for international media (you will have read about this in the news section). The screening event was right across the other side of town and as we drove across to the event Paul was playing some new tunes in his car. For several tracks I ashamedly had to use Shazam to work out what we were listening to! The tunes included recent tracks by Empire Of The Sun and Metronomy, amongst others.

The screening event was hosted by Dermot OLeary (who had interviewed Paul for Radio 2 a few weeks back) and was held in a cool screening bar in Borough. The audience was treated to a specially created edit of Good Evening New York City and then a surprise audience with Paul. After the event Paul was mobbed by members of her majestys press and happily posed for pictures. Special mention must go to the girls from The Mirror; last year when Paul was promoting The Fireman album the Mirror girls came to the launch event appropriately dressed with yellow hats. This time round the girls switched emergency service departments to the NYPD, in honour of the fact that Paul is actually an honourary member of the NYPD (true fact!) and as he correctly pointed out to the girls, he could have had them arrested for impersonating officers of the law! It leaves the press office thinking about what other themes they might come up with next year!

Tonight at the Roxy Bar and Screen venue in London a special Good Evening New York City evening was held to celebrate and promote the release of Paul’s new live CD and DVD release.

The event was attended by the UK and International Press who were treated to a superb 25 minute edit of the concert DVD and a lively Q&A session with Paul hosted by UK X-Factor and Radio 2 DJ Dermot O’Leary.

Paul also fielded questions from journalists from Brazil, Japan, Germany, Italy and Greece covering all manner of topics including the new release, playing Shea Stadium with The Beatles and how he felt when the band conquered the US, how he decides on set lists, keeping fit for the shows and also his last album Electric Arguments. Paul also told a great story about getting coins thrown at him by Teddy Boys in Stroud!

Following one question Paul admitted he would have liked to have seen John Lennon cover ‘Maybe I’m Amazed’ in response to Paul currently playing John’s ‘Give Peace A Chance’ in his live set.
