Another amazing, unforgettable concert on Saturday night, in Brooklyn. It was Paul’s first time performing in this borough, at the new Barclays Center, and he brought the house down. There are not enough superlatives to describe the show. He gave us at least 6 or 7 songs not in the last tour, and most that he NEVER performed live previous to this 2013 Out There Tour. The A/V show prior to the concert was mostly brand new and the lighting effects was first rate. Paul and his band hit the stage at 8:50PM to a thunderous ovation and they ripped into Eight Days a Week, one of the new songs. For those going tonight or later this summer, I won’t mention the songs here (if there are any of you left who do not know the impeccable set list). For those of you who don’t want to know, it is hard, not impossible, to avoid)! Paul mixes up about three dozen Beatles, Wings and Solo songs in his set that didn’t end until around 11:30PM. We saw many FEST regulars there and also many parents who brought children to see Paul. We can safely say that these youngsters experienced the greatest concert THEY WILL EVER SEE!!! Tonight, our entire family is going (Mark, Carol, Michelle & Jessica) and we are counting the minutes! After headlining at the Bonnaroo Festival on the 14th, Paul is off for some concerts in Europe and returns to the states in early July for another series of shows, beginning at Fenway Park in Boston on July 9th.
If you have seen Paul on this tour, tell us what your favorite highlights were. We know there so many to choose from!!

Here is the full release directly from the Book Publisher:
The world’s leading authority on the Beatles – and author of the bestselling
Beatles Recording Sessions – has completed the riveting first volume in a
groundbreaking trilogy about the iconic band that changed the face of pop music.
TUNE IN uncovers the lives of John, Paul, George and Ringo as never before. Their enduring fame and legendary exploits have led to countless biographies of the Beatles, but now we have the ultimate portrait. Tune In is the first book in a genre-defining trilogy, telling the story of the Beatles from before their beginning up to the final night of 1962, with success within their grasp and on the cusp of a whole new kind of celebrity.
This is the lesser-known Beatles story – the pre-Fab years of Liverpool and Hamburg – and in many respects the most absorbing, extraordinary and incredible period of all. Here is the warts and all story of their family backgrounds, childhoods, and their infatuation with American music. As Tune In chronicles in amazing nuance, everything comes together in these years and in this one book: the Beatles’ talent, charisma, looks, personalities, honesty, humor, attitude – and the Lennon-McCartney partnership. Forget what you’ve read or know about the Beatles, tune in, and start anew.
THE GREATEST BEATLES BOOK EVER WRITTEN. A decade in the making, Tune In is a staggering achievement – the most detailed recreation of how the most famous rock ‘n roll band in history came to be.
A MAJOR PUBLISHING EVENT. Musicians, collectors, scholars, historians, critics and legions of Beatles fans are awaiting this publication with a near desperate sense of interest and enthusiasm.
NEWSMAKING. Tune In is a completely fresh take on every aspect of the Beatles’ origins with scores of new interviews and tidbits certain to draw headlines. Written from an immense wealth of primary and insider sources, many never heard or seen before, including letters, contracts, photos, recordings and hundreds of new interviews and deep dive into libraries and archives from around the world, Tune In is told with panache, wit and the alluring, authoritative style of a master storyteller.
AUTHOR PLATFORM. Mark is the world’s only professional Beatles historian – the recognized expert on this subject.
Saturday, April 20th, Paul and Nancy McCartney met up with Ringo and Barbara Starr for dinner at Mr. Chow in Beverly Hills. The couples look fabulous as usual and were also joined by Joe Walsh and his wife (Barbara’s sister) and Jeff Lynne. We hope the fans and media gave them the privacy they deserve. With Paul about to start another tour this year and Ringo just completed tour of the Far East and considering another leg of the tour, perhaps in South America, they should have much to talk about. Whatever they discussed, it is always wonderful to know that they get together, as brothers would normally do. Peace and Love.
