Live set will be available November 17
Riding a wave of renewed interest in the Beatles, Paul McCartney will issue the live set “Good Evening New York City” via Hear Music/Concord Music Group on Nov. 17.The collection will arrive in a standard two-CD/single DVD package drawn from McCartney’s three-night July stand at New York’s Citi Field, new home of the New York Mets (and site of the Beatles’ 1965 Shea Stadium concert). It will be available at Starbucks coffee outlets and conventional music retailers. Four-disc deluxe version’s bonus DVD will include his July 15 appearance atop the Ed Sullivan Theater marquee on CBS’ “The Late Show With David Letterman.” The set, also available on vinyl, comprises performances of material from the Beatles, Wings and McCartney solo catalogs, including a number issued under his Fireman alias. McCartney kicked off his relationship with Starbucks’ Hear Music division and Concord in 2007 with the studio album “Memory Almost Full.” “Good Evening New York City” lands on the heels of Apple and EMI Music’s hot-selling remastered editions of the Beatles’ studio catalog, which dropped Sept. 9.
