Former Beatle making first stop on 'Late Night'

Returning to the very stage where he and the rest of the Fab Four made their U.S. TV debut on “The Ed Sullivan Show,” Paul McCartney will make his first appearance on “The Late Show with David Letterman” on Wednesday.

McCartney will be interviewed by Letterman before performing later in the telecast. Although nobody from the McCartney or Letterman camps could confirm, Sir Paul could very well be performing material from “Electric Arguments,” the third LP from his pseudonymously named alter ego, the Fireman.

The album, as well as the tour, reflect a much more spontaneous side to McCartney, who has appeared much more relaxed in public appearances as of late, having brought down the house at Coachella in April. He’s scheduled to embark on a tour of less than a dozen dates in the U.S. beginning July 17 at CitiField in New York before wrapping in Dallas on Aug. 19.
