Melbourne (show day) and interview with New Zealand’s The Project TV show – Wednesday 6th December
The second Test Match in the Ashes series has not gone well for England today and it doesn’t bode well for the series. But one Brit is doing the business. “Melbourne’s best ever concert” is just about as good as a headline can get, right? Other headlines and front pages scream similar sentiments: “We love you… yeah, yeah, yeah!”, “We Love Macca”.
Rocking-out on stage is not the only thing on Paul’s agenda today; he has another high profile media engagement. We’re working him hard on this trip, but it has been a while since he has been here – and unlike some artists I’ve worked with over the years, Paul is happy to get on with it. Just like his performances, he gives these commitments his absolute best. Today’s chat with New Zealand’s TV show The Project and presenter Jaquie Brown is both thrilled and aware of the gravity of a big-name interview as she takes it all in.
Tonight’s show also includes guests David Walliams (in town promoting his book) and indie lords Alt-J, also touring down under, as well as Australian broadcasting legend Molly Meldrum (who incidentally once worked as a publicist at the Beatles’ company Apple).
During the show my wife’s Australian cousin Holly, 28, who was only four on Paul’s last visit texts me: “Holy moly Stu. This set list. His voice. The band! Everything is perfect.”
From 3AW.com.au, December 7, 2017:
Music legend Paul McCartney has made a Scotch College student’s year – signing his bass drum onstage at McCartney’s final Melbourne concert last night.
McCartney had 16-year-old pipe band bass drummer, Will, come to centre stage after he heard the student wanted him to sign the drum.
“These guys are great,” McCartney said, signalling to the entire band.
The man in question, Will Mountney, told Neil Mitchell it was an incredible experience.
“It was very exciting but I was just really nervous.”
“Were you terrified?” Neil asked the year 10 student.
“You have no idea,” he said.
