Emma Stone, Paul McCartney, and Alan Cumming walk into a bar. And…sing Disney classics?
Alert, this is not a setup to a bad joke. It’s real life, and it happened at Cumming’s just-opened New York City bar, Club Cumming. Emma Stone and Paul McCartney sang Disney songs together. Oh, and Billie Jean King, who Stone portrays in Battle of the Sexes, joined them. NBD.

Together, they all sang “Part Of Your World” from The Little Mermaid.

An onlooker, one of around 30, verified the story.
“Emma Stone walked in with Paul McCartney and Billie Jean King,” the witness told Us Weekly. “People were really chill about it and didn’t whip out their phones and take pictures but everyone was really [excited] and surprised. [They] asked people not to record it, which everyone obliged.”

Cumming posted about the evening on Instagram.

“Proving the ‘anything can happen’ mantra, last night at @clubcumming I sang ‘Part of Your World’ with Emma Stone and Paul McCartney backed us on harmonica. And that’s Jack Aaronson on piano. Also revelling were Billie Jean King and her wife Ilana and Jake Shears! #clubcumming #yesreally.”
After the performance, Stone took time to talk with fans. Meanwhile, Cumming DJ’d and McCartney took to the dance floor.

What is this world?!

Club Cumming officially opened on September 15 in NYC’s East Village neighborhood. Cumming’s vision is for the club to be a gay-friendly space.
“Alan wants it to be a home for everyone of all ages, all genders, all sexualities, who all enjoy letting go and making some mischief. No judgments, no attitude, no rules, except kindness, acceptance and fun,” the actor’s rep said, according to Eater.
See you there next week, Emma & Paul & Billie & Alan!

If you weren't in the East Village last night, consider yourself a P.U.S. (Poor, Unfortunate Soul). At his newly-opened queer club space Club Cumming, fabulously pointed character actor Alan Cumming took the stage with Emma Stone and Paul McCartney to sing a lively rendition of The Little Mermaid's “Part of Your World.”

After sharing the stage in the recent Cabaret revival on Broadway (in which Stone's Sally was LIT, let me tell you), Cumming and Stone are back together in the new Billie Jean King biopic Battle of the Sexes, which opens this weekend. They hit Club Cumming with Billie Jean King in tow, and McCartney met them after his show at Barclay's Center in Brooklyn. 

According to one blessed attendee, Cumming asked that the audience not record the performance with their phones, but "with their hearts." After channeling Ariel, McCartney played some tunes on the harmonica, and the three hit the dancefloor for ABBA, Donna Summer and beyond. 

Hopefully, these random nights will become a regular thing for Cumming and Daniel Nardicio's new space, formerly known as Eastern Bloc. Inspired by the Scottish actor's infamous Cabaret dressing room afterparties, Club Cumming aims to host performances, readings and unpredictably kinky nights. If last night is any indication of the shape of things to come, it seems to be living up to its greatest potential.

ONE ON ONE IN SYRACUSE : September 23 2017 - Carrier Dome, Syracuse , NY

NY AG still looking into 'exorbitant' prices for Paul McCartney at Dome

SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- The New York Attorney General office is still conducting an investigation prompted by complaints of "exorbitant" ticket prices for this Saturday's Paul McCartney show at the Carrier Dome.

The investigation that began more than four months ago has not ended, an AG spokeswoman confirmed Thursday, but the AG's office would not release any details about whether anything has been uncovered so far.

The spokeswoman said office received four complaints about Paul McCartney ticket prices in the state, and two of them were related to the show at 8 p.m. Saturday at the Carrier Dome.

The two complaints for the show here came from customers who encountered "exorbitant" ticket prices on second-party markets immediately after pre-sales ended.

The office did not say how high the prices were there, but some tickets were spotted by as high as $11,000 -- about 3,000 percent above the base price.

The state could file charges against a person if it determines someone has engaged in sketchy ticket sales. The office would not say whether the high ticket sales resulted from anything illegal.

Possible criminal charges could result if there's evidence someone used a "ticket bot," an automated system of buying hundreds or thousands of tickets within seconds of them becoming available for purchase.

The investigation could lend insight into how many tickets were taken off the market for average fans, either by being snapped away by bots or priced so high by re-sellers as to prohibit most concertgoers from buying them.

The ability to file a misdemeanor charge for those behind "ticket bots" is a new tool for local district attorneys. Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed the bill last November and it went into effect in March.

The crackdown on "ticket bots" is from a legislative effort last year to make ticket prices more fair, and state legislators have regularly proposed efforts to make it easier for fans to buy tickets at fair prices.

Possible other reforms include prohibiting tickets from being re-sold within 48 hours of them becoming available and requiring ticket platforms to be more transparent about prices and how many tickets remain at any given time.

Another possible reform would be so-called "paperless tickets," which contain the names of the individual buyers. Buyers would then have to present identifying information to see a show, and that would greatly reduce the number of tickets that are re-sold, often at much-higher prices.

In addition to the complaints about the McCartney show here, investigators got complaints from customers regarding the former Beatle's show at the Nassau Coliseum and from a concertgoer from Westchester who didn't specify the venue.
Paul McCartney plays Carrier Dome: Last-gasp guide to traffic, parking, schedule, set list
By Katrina Tulloch
Posted on September 22, 2017

SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Consider this your ultimate guide to Paul McCartney's Saturday concert, with the latest information about Syracuse's biggest show of 2017.

From McCartney's set list to traffic tips, here's everything concertgoers should know before the former Beatle finally graces Syracuse with his famous voice.

The show begins at 8 p.m. There is no opener.

1. Bring water, dress for a warm night in the Carrier Dome

It's going to be a hot day for a sold-out concert. Saturday will be sunny, with a projected temperature of 88 degrees.

Concertgoers can bring one sealed personal water bottle of any size into the Dome. Typical Dome restrictions (no food, no weapons) all still apply to this show.

"We want people to hydrate," said Peter Sala, managing director of the Carrier Dome. "We've been ordering water nonstop. We're going to do everything we can for people to access water wherever they are."

Several air-conditioned areas in the Dome have been set aside in case anyone suffers from heat exhaustion.

2. Snag last-minute tickets

Hundreds of obstructed-view tickets went on sale on Thursday afternoon McCartney's concert. The seats are located in the lower level of the Dome. At least 34,900 tickets have already been sold for the long-awaited show.

Prices currently range from $57.50 to $250. Tickets are now available on

3. Expect traffic delays, arrive early

The Syracuse Police Department advises concertgoers to expect traffic delays and asks people not to try and park near the Dome.

All University parking lots near the Dome require permits. There are no drop-off or pick-up points on any of the streets that front the Dome. Lyft, Uber and limo drop-offs all take place on Waverly Avenue.

To avoid traffic delays on RT 81 at the Harrison Street off-ramp, drivers coming from north of the city should use RT 481 south.

All Manley Field House parking is sold out. If you don't have a parking pass, you must go to the Skytop lots.

Parking lots open at 3 p.m. and doors open at 6 p.m. Parking costs $20 for cars at Sky Top and $40 for buses/RVs. The parking fee includes shuttle service to and from the Dome.

o get to the Manley or Skytop parking facilities:

North of the city: RT 81 south to the Brighton Av off ramp and follow the Dome parking signs.

North or east of the city: RT 481 south to the Brighton Av off ramp, turn right onto E. Brighton Av then right onto Ainsley Dr and follow the Skytop parking signs.

South of the city: RT 81 north to 481 north, to the Rockcut Rd exit. Turn right onto Rockcut Rd, then right onto E. Brighton Av and right onto Ainsley Dr and follow the Skytop parking signs.

Get there early. Dome officials recommend arriving at the stadium at least 90 minutes before the concert starts.

4. Brush up on Paul's set list

If you're the type of person who loves to be surprised, read no further. But if you like to have an idea of how long a show may go and what an artist will play, check out McCartney's recent set list at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

On this tour, McCartney has stuck close to about the same set list for many of his shows. Sets on the "One on One" tour range from 35-40 songs by the Beatles, the Wings (his band with Linda McCartney) and smaller solo projects.

McCartney's shows run about three hours.

5. See Syracuse musicians welcome Paul with "Get Back" concert

Twenty-four years. That's how long Syracuse waited for Paul McCartney to "get back to where he once belonged," after postponing his Carrier Dome concert in 1993.

To welcome McCartney, several Syracuse musicians teamed up to perform "Get Back" on the roof of's downtown newsroom, as a tribute to The Beatles' famous 1969 rooftop concert.

"It's meant as an homage, to wave hello to Paul," said lead singer Bob Halligan Jr.

Performing alongside Halligan are Syracuse musicians Cathy LaManna, Joe Altier, Paul Davie, Jeffrey Pepper Rodgers and Andrew Paul Halliday.

B.C. man to sing with Paul McCartney after winning charity contest
B.C. man to sing with Paul McCartney after winning charity contest
Published on: September 21, 2017

A B.C. man will get the opportunity to say “Hi, Hi, Hi” to Paul McCartney after winning a charity contest.

Grand Forks resident Gregg Anderson, 45, was stunned on Sunday to discover that he’d been selected to attend McCartney’s show at the Barclays Center in New York on Thursday night, as well as meet the music icon for an informal chat and, incredibly, join McCartney onstage for a performance of Beatles classic Get Back.

Anderson’s once-in-a-lifetime opportunity has been made possible by Omaze, an online fundraising platform that holds contests for unbelievable prizes and dream experiences, with the proceeds going to charitable causes. To enter for a chance to meet McCartney, Anderson pledged $50 to the David Lynch Foundation, a non-profit organization that targets “the epidemic of trauma and toxic stress among under-resourced populations through Transcendental Meditation.”

Omaze informed Anderson of his good fortune during a Skype interview on Sunday night. He went nuts.

“The girl who was interviewing me even said, ‘Gregg, you are about to go to a whole new level of freakout,” Anderson said with a laugh during a telephone interview from his hotel room in Brooklyn. Omaze has provided a GIF of that moment.

Anderson, who says the Beatles are his favourite band and McCartney is his favourite Beatle, has made sacrifices to see McCartney in the past.

“I saw Paul McCartney in 2012 in BC Place,” he said. “I spent a month’s rent that I didn’t have to go see him. I got really good seats. I had to do some creative funnelling of funds to get the rent done that month.”

This time around, the only thing standing between Anderson and his dream experience was that he needed to be excused from his job at Canada Post in a hurry.

“They gave me a day’s notice,” he said.

Fortunately, his manager and coworkers were nothing but supportive.

“I actually had a coworker come off holiday so I could be away for the week,” he said. That was very nice of her. And when I told my manager, she actually got more excited than I was.”

Good thing, too. “Otherwise I may have quit,” Anderson joked.

When he meets McCartney, Anderson simply wants to thank the legendary songwriter, whose music has helped him to get through “a crappy year” in which his father passed away.  

“I don’t want to just come at him with questions,” Anderson said. “All I wanna do is just tell him, thank you. I just wanna thank him for everything he’s done for me through his music. He’s got me through a lot of stuff.”

“This is a good thing. I needed this. I just want to thank him.”

Watch Paul McCartney Serenade Jimmy Fallon with 'Birthday' During Barclays Center Show

You expect that Justin Timberlake will wish his old Camp Winnipesaukee pal Jimmy Fallon a happy birthday. But Paul McCartney? The former Beatle took some time out of his gig at Barclays Center on Tuesday night (Sept. 19) to call out Fallon and say happy birthday, and then, of course, sing "Birthday" to the 43-year-old Tonight Show host, who was in the audience losing his freakin' mind the whole time.

"Wait a minute, who's this guy?" McCartney says from the stage, looking out to spot Fallon in primo seats on the floor. "Hey, wait a minute, is that Jimmy, Jimmy Fallon?... Happy birthday Jim! Okay Jim, this is especially for you and the other people who who've got a birthday." Watch Fallon take selfies with wife Nancy Juvonen (and Saturday Night Live producer Lorne Michaels) sing along and lose his mind over the unexpected honor.

Paul McCartney set list: What might he play at Syracuse concert?
By Katrina Tulloch
Posted on September 20, 2017

SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- Paul McCartney's 2017 concerts tend to run long -- about three hours.

Of course, the former Beatle and acclaimed singer/songwriter has one of the largest catalogs in music history. He has plenty of original tunes to use and he has the endurance to perform as many as possible.

Sets on the "One on One" tour range from 35-40 songs. It includes songs he wrote and performed with the Quarrymen, the Beatles, Wings (his band with Linda McCartney) and smaller solo projects.

McCartney played at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on Sept. 19 and fans compiled his set list online the next day. All his shows on this tour have opened with "A Hard Day's Night and ended with "The End," after a multi-song encore.

Paul McCartney set list
Barclays Center | Sept. 19

A Hard Day's Night (The Beatles song)
Junior's Farm (Wings song)
Can't Buy Me Love (The Beatles song)
Jet (Wings song)
All My Loving (The Beatles song)

I've Got a Feeling (The Beatles song)
My Valentine
Nineteen Hundred and Eighty-Five (Wings song)
Maybe I'm Amazed
We Can Work It Out (The Beatles song)
In Spite of All the Danger (The Quarrymen song)

Happy Birthday to You (Mildred J. Hill & Patty Hill cover) (for Jimmy Fallon)

Unless someone famous shows up for their birthday, it's likely he won't perform a second birthday song as he did for Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday night.

On Sept. 15, McCartney played a similar set list at Madison Square Garden, with a few changes to early numbers, like Save Us, Letting Go (Wings), Got to Get You Into My Life (The Beatles).
