About

From The Wall Street Journal’s Speakeasy:

Paul McCartney is many things, a gifted musician, singer and band leader. Mostly, he is an inspiration.

Last night at Yankee Stadium, McCartney played and played, gave and gave, for well over two hours. He never stopped singing, playing, performing and smiling. He loves pleasing crowds.

All night long, McCartney played, by my rough count, 27 Beatles songs and nine others. He remained faithful to the vintage musical arrangements from the Beatles, Wings and McCartney solo records. He never even stopped to take a sip of water. McCartney, who just turned 69 years of age, rocked even harder last night than he did when I last saw him perform, two years ago at the then-new Citi Field across town.

McCartney greatly enjoyed himself, pausing at one point to crack a joke that the crowd could deeply appreciate. “Who’s this Derek Jeter guy?” He asked in mock-anger. “People tell me he has more hits than me,” a reference to Jeter getting his 3,000 career base hit last week for the hometown Yankees.

McCartney looked confident and poised throughout the concert. His hard-working band was terrific and he had an easy rapport with all of the musicians. […]
