At 1pm in London Sir Paul McCartney took to the Covent Garden Stage like a hungry fresh kid. He seemed to love every minute of it as he rocked the Garden area with a close up and personal Mega Busk. Here are three video of different quality that capture some of the songs and energy that day. Here they are.
Here is a video of his “New” song from TheGlobeTodayNo one knows why, but the super star is mingling on the streets as it were these days. It is said that the Beatles sometimes busked in the early days.
Around Superbowl time we found Sir Paul singing Beatles tunes in New Orleans on a street car. The passengers slowly realized the guy on the car singing the songs was the former Beatle much to the delight of all. A mega sing along ensued.
Now check out another song from the gig
Paul McCartney – Save Us @ Covent Garden dutchgirlie·
At Covent Garden, McCartney’s truck pulled up a day before and set up was completed for the well Tweeted performance which began at 1pm the next day. He has been on a whirlwind tour to reach out with all he has to as many people as possible for a series of stadium venue world tours, television appearances for several years and now he releases a new Album called “New”
Perhaps this will be the last great album by the rock master Sir Paul McCartney or perhaps it will be the first in a series of what will be known as his seasoned life series of works. His first such series was the, after the Beatles breakup period starting with “Ram” It ended with Linda;s passing.
And what about more busking? Perhaps his sing along got him to thinking about the way you perform close up that cannot be duplicated any other way. I would not be surprised if he pops up doing more of the same but different.
Will Sir Paul treat us to more of his busking in the coming years? Time will tell.
