From AFP/RelaxNews, June 12th 2015:
A week before his 73rd birthday, Paul McCartney wowed concert-goers at the Stade de France yesterday, belting out a series of songs that were peppered with Beatles hits.
Clad in a jacket and white shirt, McCartney put on an energetic performance that included “Hey Jude”, “Yesterday” and “Helter Skelter”, as well as a series of songs from Wings, his band between 1971 and 1981.
The ex-Beatle, who last performed at the Stade de France in 2004, was supported on stage by a group of four musicians in the latest stage of his “Out There” tour, which began in Brazil in May 2013 and concludes next month in Chicago.
As soon as the concert ended and the crowds began departing, stadium workers rushed in to clean up and prepare for a Top 14 rugby match at the Stade de France tomorrow.
From For Whom The Bell Tells, August 7, 2015:
“Paul McCartney electrified the Stade de France. He was irresistible as he took us through his treasures” (Le Parisien)
“An amazing show! Legendary songs, high emotions and an over excited audience were proof McCartney was on his best form ever” (L’Express)
We’re back to France and like our recent visit to Marseille, it’s a very hot day. As we enter the stadium in the morning memories come flooding back of Paul’s last concert at the enormous Stade de France in 2004.
There are lots of French VIPs here hoping to say hi to Paul, including one of the electronic duo Daft Punk. He was in disguise tonight –which involved NOT wearing his robot helmet! Hollywood actress Natalie Portman – the star of Paul’s ‘My Valentine’ and ‘Dance Tonight’ – is in town too and of course she pops along to the show.
