First of all, his music since the beatles has been lackluster. Why does anyone want to hear ebony an ivory. His voice is going, and the only positive part would be the beatles stuff, but everyones heard mccartney sing hey jude 40 times at various superbowls and what not. So whats up? why is everyone in love.

Because...he's Paul...

I've heard some people who took their mom's to one of his shows, expecting it to be boring while the old gal rocks it, and came away loving it too...

Who knows...he's Macca...just because...

Let's just hope he only plays his Beatles songs :P

but its more than that, paul was a part of the beatles, the band that influenced music to day more than any other, and to be able to see that at coachella when I prob wouldnt be able to go see him for 250 a ticket is fucking great

i admit, if i were to think of ANYONE i'd like to see at Coachella, McCartney's name would never end pop into my head... but since he's gonna be there, i'm looking forward to it.

Jremy
01-30-2009, 04:02 PM
After 06, Daft Punk set the bar pretty high with what a live show needs to be...
in 07 we saw some performance scrape the surface.
And in 08 Roger Waters truly delivered.
All i'm tryin to say is, Paul better bring it hard. Because just singing "hard days night" with a full band and gonna cut it.

i dont see the point in being a dick, i didnt say anything derogatory about the man. Im just wondering what his live shows are like.

i understand that he was a part of the biggest musical revolution, ever, which is why i am excited. but with roger waters i KNEW he was going to be playing DSOTM, with mccartney i dont know whether he is going to be performing more of his solo work, which i am considerably less interested in, or what.

all i want to know, from someone who has been to his show, what should we be expecting?

No, but seriously he's legendary. It will be great.

01-30-2009, 04:09 PM
Paul will be great because it will be mostly a greatest hits set from a legendary songwriter. BTW, I am really happy to see him headlining on Friday (as opposed to the rumored Sunday spot).

01-30-2009, 04:09 PM
200,000 people showed up to the summer festival in quebec city and according to a friend he brought it hard...just listen to live and let die, imagine a sweet guitar solo, and then some pyrotechnics every successive BRRRRAAAAAOOOOOONNNNNNNGGGGGGG...BUN NA! Plus he's a beatle, with a great back up band, really can't complain at all.

interpolitix
01-30-2009, 04:54 PM
well...

he is a link to the stuff of musical lore and legend.

he has written at least 20 of the most revered songs in the english language.

he is a professional who has played larger, more important gigs. he's a shrewd performer who will give the people what they want....a memory.

he is still a charming sonofabitch.

despite the haters, beatles songs are probably some of the most singalongable in existence. big songalongs equal big memories when the stars are out and all those wild spotlights are in the air at the polo fields.


i love whoever said that it'd be something to talk to mom about come christmas time. an awesome thing.


and seriously......
not one band, dj, emcee or whatever horrible category perry farrell falls into is bummed that Paul McCartney is playing.

it's like...
"hey dad. it's ______ your son/daughter/mistress.
you know that mediocre band i'm in that no one will give a shit about in 3 years?
well, we're sharing a lineup/stage/sky with a Beatle.

oh yeah.
i'm 26 so the whole beatle/oldchella thing does not apply.
i just think it's rad i can see the bug, n.a.s.a and a beatle on the same day.

McCartney live is something that you'll always remember. My very first concert was Paul McCartney and Wings over America in 1976. I see him every time he tours, and believe me, every single time it's great. The last time I saw him, he played I've Got A Feeling and Helter Skelter--wholy shit--it was AMAZING! To anyone who is skeptical, just wait to post your comments until after the show.

sydaud
01-30-2009, 05:08 PM
Because no pop artist alive (or dead for that matter) has written more American #1 hits...and they're delivered with total energy. The point is well taken, above ^; I can tell anyone that I know that I am going to see McCartney and they'll nod knowingly.

The other thing... there's not a lot of bands whose music holds up as well as the Beatles. It's amazing to me to go back and listen to the White Album, Abbey Road, Revolver. I've heard the songs hundreds of times, but they never feel old or played out (with some exeptions - Baby you can drive my car, etc).

The Beatles, like Radiohead or the Flaming Lips, are definitely the kind of group where you want to sit down and listen to the whole album, not just a song here or there... and the way the albums evolved over the years was really amazing... anyway I'm just a Beatle freak, so I'll stop now.

Nobody has to explain shit to you, mister. If you're not digging Paulie's vibe, than you don't have to watch it bub.

If you can't appreciate Paul McCartney, the man and his music, than I guess you're worse for the weather.

Dude, It's *Paul McCartney*. Last year, Roger Waters brought the greatest setlist and show the festival has ever seen. You cannot top that material. Now this year, Coachella wil be seeing the chief songwriter of the *greatest rock band of all time*. The set will include the greatest group of songs Coachela has ever seen. Wether McCartny can completely deliver remains to be seen at his age, but it will be good, make no mistake about it.

Although I have been a Beatles fan since I was a kid, I never had the desire to see Paul McCartney live. Then, a few years ago, a friend of mine got a job doing the video mixing for Paul McCartney's European Tour. I got to fly over and see McCartney's shows in Vienna and Budapest, and he was amazing. It is the only show I have been to where people were just crying with joy. I have since seen him three more times and he has been awesome every time. Lots of energy and he has a great stage show. His stage show had some things I had never seen before, like multi-colored flames during Live and Let Die. Its not quite on par with Roger Waters, but its in the same ballpark. And, seeing him sing Let it Be just has an effect on you.

I haven't personally listened to Paul McCartney's solo stuff too much, so I don't know too much about how his non-Beatles stuff is.

Here's the thing though: the prospect of a HUGE singalong to "Hey Jude" on the grass under the stars on my favorite weekend of the year is too good to pass up. Yes, it's cheesy, but come on.

Though I'm worried Paul might be a little arrogant on stage. I was okay with Prince last year prancing around going "Coacheeeella! I am here!", by Paul McCartney? I mean, this guy recently said in an interview that he was the political Beatle, not John Lennon. Are you kidding me? That's like the lead singer of Paramore declaring she has the biggest dick in the band.

First of all, Paul is not at all arrogant on stage--just the opposite. I love Prince (I've seen him live about 25 times), but that man is an arrogant diva.

Secondly, I read and heard that interview about the political Beatle, and that wasn't at all what Paul said.

I've never seen Paul live so I wouldn't know but I do know Prince is one proud muhfucka.

And, "Following his talk with Russell, McCartney said he told "the guys, particularly John (Lennon), about this meeting and saying what a bad war this was," The Sunday Times quoted McCartney as saying in the interview."

Guess you're right. It's another case of a musician having his words misconstrued by the media and the public (Bigger than Jesus, anyone?)

Jet, Maybe I'm Amazed, Live and Let Die, and Band on the Run are staples of his show. You can expect at least those songs to be on his set with maybe a few other Wings/solo songs. Unfortunately, he'll probably play Dance Tonight and Fireman material too maybe. The rest will all be Beatles classics.

I haven't seen Sir Paul since Flowers in the Dirt, but even back then it was amazing.

He won't have a new album to plug beyond the relatively intimate (and rather good) Electric Arguments Fireman album, and I'd be surprised if we get much from that.

I'd anticipate a hits-laden set that spans his entire recorded output, heavy on Beatles tunes and early solo material. My daughter, who turns seven later this month, is coming along on Friday so she and I can fulfill our shared dream of hearing Paul McCartney (and thousands upon thousands of festival-goers) sing "Hey Jude" together. The word "epic" is overused in these parts, but I find it suitable for use here.

First of all, his music since the beatles has been lackluster. Why does anyone want to hear ebony an ivory. His voice is going, and the only positive part would be the beatles stuff, but everyones heard mccartney sing hey jude 40 times at various superbowls and what not. So whats up? why is everyone in love.

If you need an explanation you dont deserve to see him so why dont you go ahead and get a good spot for Genghis Tron

Not entirely true homie.

If it were Paul McCartney playing bass guitar with a Beatles cover band (a la Roger Waters last year), I'd watch that shit in a heartbeat.

If it's Paul McCartney sitting his ass behind a piano singing Hey Jude and Say Say Say, I'd rather stick a BBQ skewer in my pee hole and light it on fire.

I've been to dozens of Paul concerts, and I've never seen A Day It The Life live, so I really hope he performs it.

As for people bashing McCartney on the board, they're either just trying to get a rise out of everyone, or they just don't get it. But there's no doubt in my mind that they will be as blown away by his set as people who are looking forward to seeing him.
