First live rendition
Paul McCartney resumed his “Out There” tour in Albany, USA. The Albany show came after McCartney was forced to postpone several concerts due to illness. The singer called off the Japan leg of the tour, a show in South Korea and seven US dates after being struck down with a virus.
From MassLine, July 6, 2014:
Seven weeks after illness forced Paul McCartney to scrub an Asian tour and postpone other dates, the 72-year-old former Beatle kicked off the U.S. leg of his “Out There” tour with a triumphant, nearly three-hour performance at the Times Union Center on Saturday night.
Looking fit and sounding remarkably well, McCartney marshalled his sharp four-member band through 41 tunes. In a span of two hours and 56 minutes, McCartney not only revisited the music of the Fab Four and his ‘70s act Wings, but featured five tracks from his exceptional 2013 album, “New,” including the concert debut of “On My Way to Work.” […]
It was an energetic performance by McCartney, who seemed to feed off the excitement in the sold-out arena. “You couldn’t have given us a better welcome back to the road,” he told the crowd near the close of the night.
In a playful mood throughout the evening, McCartney poked fun at his habit of retelling familiar stories on tour (Jimi Hendrix covering “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band” days after its release…) and assisted a 64-year-old Rochester, N.Y., man in proposing to his girlfriend. The would-be groom warbled “When I’m 64” with McCartney playing bass. (She said yes). […]
During the concert, Paul McCartney dedicated “Another Day” to producer Phil Ramone, who died in March 2013.
