Paul McCartney plays Citi Field: He's still got it

Posted on

Last night, Paul McCartney hit the New York Mets’ Citi Field and jammed for two hours, becoming the first musical act to play at the brand-new stadium. When he played at the Mets’ former home, Shea Stadium, in 1965, he also similarly helped christen that ballpark for rock concerts as a frenzy of teens went wild for the Beatles.

Amongst his 30-song set last night was everything from recent work (like “Sing The Changes”) to Beatles masterpieces. And, from this video below and reports from some of the 55,000 who attended the rain-soaked show, the legend’s rendition of Fab Four hit “Let it Be” was more than memorable. Enjoy it here:

I never tire of that song. What do you think, PopWatchers? Does Paul still have it? Was he an appropriate inaugural musical act for Citi Field? Were you there?
