Paul McCartney's concerts on his One On One Tour, which is in its last weeks, usually make news on their own, but he had a little help while in Cleveland on Aug. 17 and 18 performing at the Quicken Loans Arena. He received a special visit from none other than Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton before the first show, Billboard reported.
The shows themselves were great, according to fan Kris Tash who attended. “Cleveland positively rocked tonight!,” she said. According to Tash, McCartney, after singing “Maybe I'm Amazed” and referring to one of the pictures screened behind him during the show, told the crowd the little baby in the picture in his jacket was his daughter, Mary, who's all grown up now and has four kids of her own. And, he told the crowd, she was in the audience with one of her own kids. Cleveland also holds a special place for McCartney. He said that his late wife Linda McCartney's mother was from Cleveland.
The set lists for both shows were identical, but with one exception. On night two, McCartney played “Jet” instead of “Letting Go,” his press representative said. The tour now takes a lengthy break before resuming Oct. 4 and 5 with two shows at Golden 1 Center in Sacramento, California. Following those concerts, the tour closes out with shows on two successive weekends Oct. 8 and 15 at the Desert Trip festival in Indio, California. Tickets are available here.
McCartney announced this week he is returning to Capitol Records, which is getting his back catalog. The pact takes effect in 2017.
