Paul McCartney in Mexico City

“Terrified Sir Paul McCartney had to be rescued by cops after a mob attacked his tour bus in a dodgy no-go part of Mexico City.

Youths forced his driver to stop then started jumping up and down on the roof as the Beatles legend, 67, cowered inside.

A source said: “At first his security team thought it was just swarms of fans but when people started scaling the bus, the situation changed in a flash.” They called cops who raced to the rescue. “Paul and the team were shaken up,” the source added.

It happened after his gig at the Foro Sol stadium on Saturday at 1am. His management team are now reviewing security.

Macca, who was unhurt, was in Washington last night for a White House concert.” [mirror.co.uk (via)]

Paul played two shows while in Mexico City. Both setlists are below. The White House concert takes place Wednesday June 2nd, and will be aired on PBS later this summer…

The program, to be taped by WETA Washington, D.C., as part of the “In Performance at the White House” series, will air on PBS stations nationwide on Wednesday, July 28, 2010, at 8 p.m. EDT (check local listings) as “Paul McCartney: The Library of Congress Gershwin Prize for Popular Song In Performance at the White House.”

The concert will feature a tribute by major stars, many of whom will perform the songs that propelled McCartney to legendary status in music and humanitarianism around the world. The lineup of performers includes Stevie Wonder, Faith Hill, Jonas Brothers, Dave Grohl, Jack White, Elvis Costello, Emmylou Harris, Herbie Hancock, Corinne Bailey Rae and remarks by Jerry Seinfeld.

The Gershwin Prize for Popular Song was created by the Library of Congress to honor artists whose creative output transcends distinctions between musical styles and idioms, bringing diverse listeners together, and fostering mutual understanding and appreciation.
