Although Paul McCartney die-hards are still in the dark about the exact whereabouts of his secret New York City show on Friday night (September 7th), fans will still get a front row seat to the gig.
A message was posted on PaulMcCartney.com which read:
“(Paul) will be joining forces with YouTube Originals to livestream a secret concert via his channel this coming Friday 7th September to celebrate the release of his new album Egypt Station. Fans will be able to tune in to watch Paul perform tracks from Egypt Station along with Beatles, Wings and solo classics from 8:00pm (https://www.youtube.com/paulmccartney). The venue is still to be confirmed.”
McCartney's recent shows seamlessly blend material from throughout his career — with hits and rarities spanning well over 55 years. We asked him how he decides what songs make the cut in his concerts: “You've just got to judge it between rare and stuff that people still know. If you just do a whole big bunch of songs that nobody knows, that's kind of all right for a club. But I think when you've got these big arenas, I've gotta give 'em a kind of night out that I would want. So that includes hits. We do some that they don't know so well and then some that they know all too well.”
