Paul McCartney Returns to Tokyo’s Budokan

April 25 2017

Paul McCartney made his first public performance of 2017 at Tokyo’s legendary Budokan today (April 25) and also revealed more “One on One” tour dates. He had played the venue two years ago and famously performed there with The Beatles in 1966, the first rock band to play at the sacred venue.

At that first performance over 50 years ago, the Fab Four played just 11 songs. In 2015, he performed 28 songs at the Budokan as part of his “Out There” tour.

Tonight, at age 74, McCartney outdid himself with a career-spanning 31-song set that mixed in Beatles numbers, Wings songs and even The Quarrymen’s “In Spite of all the Danger.”

McCartney kicked off the set as he did the 2016 edition of his “One on One” tour when he revived “A Hard Day’s Night” for the first time in decades. He then rotated his repertoire with ’70s-era Wings numbers like “Jet,” “Nineteen Hundred and Eighty-Five” and “Live and Let Die” with Beatles songs from a decade earlier like “Drive My Car,” “Yesterday,” “Blackbird” and “Hey Jude.”

Watch McCartney perform “Magical Mystery Tour”…

To help promote the 50th anniversary re-release of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, he performed two songs from that 1967 album.

The set also included such solo hits as “Every Night” and “Maybe I’m Amazed.” He finished with three songs from side two of Abbey Road: “Golden Slumbers,” “Carry That Weight” and “The End.” (The complete set list is below.)

McCartney also performed “I Wanna Be Your Man,” which he had previously brought out at last fall’s Desert Trip shows but hadn’t plauyed since 1993 before that.

The encore began with “Yesterday”…

When the summer dates begin, McCartney will have turned 75. His birthday is June 18, 1942.

Paul McCartney at the Des Moines and the CenturyLink?
Is Paul McCartney getting back to Des Moines? It's looking good.
Matthew Leimkuehler , Des Moines Register
Published  April 24, 2017

Paul McCartney kicks off his first song at Dover's Firefly Music Festival in 2015.

Sir Paul McCartney, it’s been too long.

Twelve years, to be sort-of exact, since you last brought your collection of world-changing songs to Des Moines. Could you be getting back to Iowa’s capital city this summer? All signs point to Iowans letting him in.

Posted around 8 a.m. Monday morning, the Iowa Events Center launched, teasing a “special announcement for an upcoming concert this summer” Tuesday morning via a press conference at Cowles Commons. Running along the top of the website are banners that boast popular McCartney numbers like “Let It Be” and “Live And Let Die.”

“Join us, and maybe you'll be amazed ...,” the post reads.

While this teaser site wants to hold our hand, the Iowa Events Center couldn’t confirm McCartney’s return Monday and encouraged all interested to work it out in your schedule and jet down to Cowles Commons for the Tuesday event.

Paul McCartney last performed in Des Moines on Oct. 27, 2005. It was the first announced show in Wells Fargo Arena history. McCartney’s previous Iowa shows also include a capacity performance at Jack Trice Stadium in Ames. If confirmed, it would be the second act planning to return this summer after playing the arena’s opening year; Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers, the Iowa Events Center’s first concert, returns to the arena stage June 5.

Known (obviously) as a co-founder and songwriter in cultural phenomenon The Beatles and frontman of 1970s outfit Wings, McCartney last released a studio record, the memorable “New,” in 2013. In recent years McCartney’s collaborated with the likes of Dave Grohl and Kanye West, and he brought home one of music’s biggest awards, a Kennedy Center Honor.

Could it be so? Could the "once-in-a-lifetime event" that the CenturyLink Center is touting while playing coy be megastar Paul McCartney?

The CenturyLink on Friday announced a press conference for Tuesday morning to announce the big coming event. The invitation's background featured a Union Jack, the British flag, which prompted much speculation. McCartney, the former Beatles and Wings star, was among the artists mentioned.

Now the popular website Bandsintown is showing a CenturyLink stop for McCartney . . . July 15. The Bossier City date is one of four McCartney concerts listed and the only one in the United States.

No ticket price information was listed.

Rebecca Bonnevier, general manager of the CenturyLink, said she could not confirm the McCartney date. "We have no information," she said Monday morning.

Lana Del Rey reveals collaboration with Sean Ono Lennon on new song
Lana Del Rey reveals collaboration with Sean Ono Lennon on new song
Mirage News 
APRIL 19, 2017 

 Lana Del Rey has revealed that she’s collaborated with John Lennon and Yoko Ono‘s son, Sean Ono Lennon, on a new song that references his parents, NME reports.

Del Rey is preparing to release her new album, ‘Lust For Life’, the follow-up to 2015’s ‘Honeymoon’. It has already been preceded by lead single ‘Love’. The singer recently unveiled a witch-themed trailer for the album and teased that the record is “coming soon”.

Lana spoke to Courtney Love in a new interview for Dazed in which she talked about a song from her upcoming album called ‘Tomorrow Never Came’ that was written with Sean Ono Lennon and includes the lyric: “I wish we could go back to your country house and put on the radio and listen to our favourite song by Lennon and Yoko”.

“I didn’t want him to think I was asking him because I was name-checking them,” Del Rey explained of the collaboration. “Actually, I had listened to his records over the years and I did think it was his vibe, so I played it for him and he liked it.”

She also confirmed that The Weeknd features on the album’s title track ‘Lust For Life’. She said: “Maybe that’s kind of weird to have a feature on the title track, but I really love that song and we had said for a while that we were gonna do something; I did stuff on his last two records.”

Elsewhere in the Dazed interview, Del Rey and Love discuss their admiration for each other’s music. “You’re one of my favourite writers,” Del Rey told Love, who replied: “You’re one of mine, so, checkmate.”

Meanwhile, Del Rey recently unveiled the cover art for her new album ‘Lust For Life’.

She also recently gave a rare interview to BBC Radio 2’s Jo Whiley, where she revealed more details about the upcoming new record.

“I started out thinking that the whole record was gonna have a sort of a ’50s-’60s feeling, kind of some kind of Shangri-Las, early Joan Baez influences,” she explained. “But I don’t know, as the climate kept on getting more heated politically, I found lyrically everything was just directed towards that. So because of that, the sound just got really updated, and I felt like it was more wanting to talk to the younger side of the audience that I have. I guess it’s a little more socially aware. It’s kind of a global feeling.”

Paul McCartney lands new production deal for High in the Clouds movie

Paul McCartney lands new production deal for High in the Clouds movie

Apr 21 2017

Paul McCartney is one step closer to getting his long-gestating animated movie High In The Clouds onto the big screen after securing a new production deal.
The Beatles icon first started working on the project in 2009, but progress has been slow and officials at RGH Entertainment, a Jordanian company which picked up the film, have since shuttered its offices in Los Angeles.
Now reports McCartney has taken the idea to bosses at famed French firm Gaumont, which will produce High In The Clouds as its first animated feature in the U.S.
The movie is based on the children’s adventure book of the same name McCartney had published back in 2005, and follows the story of a young squirrel left to find his way after losing his mother when their home was attacked.
The project had previously been set to feature a string of original tunes by the veteran rocker, while a sizzle reel in 2015 also included a secret track by Lady Gaga.
It’s not known if the songs will all make the final cut, but McCartney will remain a producer of the film.

Gaumont Boards Paul McCartney’s Animated Film ‘High In The Clouds’
by David Robb
April 20, 201

EXCLUSIVE: Paul McCartney’s long-in-the-works animated film High In The Clouds will have to wait a little longer. The project, which has been in development since 2009, has been optioned by Gaumont, the French company with offices in Beverly Hills. The new deal marks the first animated feature project for Gaumont in the U.S.

The film, which features eight or nine original songs by the former Beatle, had been in the works under the umbrella of RGH Entertainment, a Jordanian company with offices in Woodland Hills. Those offices, however, were padlocked recently, and RGH is now nowhere to be found.

Two years ago, Deadline got a sneak peek at a sizzle reel for the film, which includes a rollicking number by Lady Gaga that hasn’t been heard yet publicly.

The film is based on the 2005 children’s book of the same name that McCartney penned, and it’s believed he’ll voice one of the main characters.

Gaumont, the first and oldest film studio in the world, will produce in association with Michael Lynne and Bob Shaye, co-founders of Unique Features – who have been involved with the project for years – and McCartney’s MPL Communications.  McCartney, Shaye and Lynne will serve as producers alongside Gaumont’s CEO Sidonie Dumas, vice-CEO Christophe Riandée, and president of animation Nicolas Atlan.

Representing McCartney and MPL Communications on the deal is attorney Lee Eastman, and Unique is represented by attorney Ezra Doner. WME’s Samantha Racanelli brought the project to Gaumont.
