Paul McCartney @ Highline Ballroom – pics & reviews

Paul McCartney @ Highline Ballroom, NYC – June 13, 2007
Paul McCartney @ Highline Ballroom

Paul McCartney stormed the stage of a small ballroom on Wednesday and delivered a 20-song set featuring Beatles favorites and select cuts from his newly released album “Memory Almost Full.”

The free show for about 700 fans at the Highline Ballroom in New York’s Chelsea district was hastily arranged, with McCartney’s website only announcing the gig on Tuesday. Passes were distributed through a give-away on the website and to fans who lined up on Wednesday outside the venue.

The former Beatle and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer played a dozen songs from the Beatles catalogue that included opening number “Drive My Car” and Fab Four warhorses “Hey Jude,” “Lady Madonna,” “Let It Be” and “Get Back.” The remaining songs came from the new album and other McCartney solo projects.
