Paul McCartney to release New York Citi Field live CD/DVD

Ex-Beatle to issue new release on November 23

Sir Paul McCartney is set to issue live CD/DVD packages of his gigs at New York‘s Citi Field venue that took place in July earlier this year, on November 23.

The standard release of ‘Good Evening New York City’ will feature two CDs and a DVD. A deluxe edition will feature an additional DVD featuring McCartney‘s performance at the Ed Sullivan Theater. The live album will also be issued on vinyl.

The gigs, at which McCartney played songs by The Beatles and Wings, as well as selections from his solo back catalogue, took place on July 17, 18 and 21.

They were significant for McCartney as The Beatles played the venue in 1965 when it was known as Shea Stadium.

“It was three great nights for the band and for me personally,” he said. “It was very exciting to be back opening a new stadium on the site of the old Shea Stadium where we had played 44 years previously.”

Referring to the fans’ screaming back in the ’60s, McCartney said the gigs were “even more exciting because this time round you could hear us!”
