Arizona Republic’s Ed Masley wrote a recent article after Paul McCartney’s two hours of performance in Talking Stick Resort Arena, Phoenix.
In case, Paul was pretty satisfied with the performance of the crowd with old Beatles songs like Lady Madonna and Elanor Rigby, he didn’t like at all for the newer songs.
Here is what he said to the crowd:
“One thing is, we know which songs you like. Because what happens is when we do an old Beatles song? The place lights up with your phones. And it’s like a galaxy of stars.
And then when we do a new one, it’s like a black hole. But we don’t care. We’re gonna do ’em anyway.”
Here is the rest of the story from the Arizona Republic:
“And with that, he led his bandmates in “Fuh You” from last year’s “Egypt Station.”
It was one of three songs in the set from his latest release, which more than holds its own against the best of what the other artists of his generation have done for us lately. His previous effort, “New,” from which he pulled one of the concert’s most spirited moments, “Queenie Eye,” is just as good.
But as the eternally youthful legend so playfully noted, he knows which songs you like.”
