This concert was the second of two nights in Brooklyn.
Maybe it was the bored woman with the Grateful Dead tattoo scalping floor seats for $350, or the middle-aged trio toking with all their might on The Smallest Joint In The World. Maybe it was the graybeard in a Sun Records shirt berating his limping friend in a tie-dye Rainforest Café tee for not bringing a flask, or maybe it was the two 17-year-old girls in matching, hand-painted-and-frayed crop tops, announcing their desire to record a song with Paul McCartney. The confluence of all of these people I met outside the Barclays Center in Brooklyn for the second-to-last show of this leg of McCartney’s Out There tour screamed a shellacked flower-power idealism. The vision of the ’60s was not dead. The bohemian simply melded with the bourgeois. […]
Through all the fireworks of ‘Live and Let Die’ and the strange Jeff Koons videos of giant, inflatable balloon dogs in landscape projected behind the band, the spectacle seemed requisite only for the size of the show. McCartney’s greatest strength has always been about connecting on two deeply human levels: love and loss. Decades past, these songs never fail to make those two basic human emotions bubble up. On Monday night, the sadness of the past almost cracked his cheeky veneer. His immense success and sometimes haughty demeanor have kept him away from blue-collar adulation. But for that, the glimpses of all this pain and the humility in the tribute, it brought him off that two-story riser he’s still toiling through the pits of misery as best he can, just like the rest of us, always on the same basic level.
Live the previous nights, several celebrities were spotted in the audience, like Jimmy Fallon, Jerry Seinfeld, Paul Rudd.
