Macca @ Bowl


ROCK SHOW AT THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL: When it comes to set lists, it’d be well nigh impossible to top a Paul McCartney concert, as the L.A. TimesRandy Lewis points out in his review of Macca’s Tuesday night performance the Hollywood Bowl, his first since playing a benefit concert there in 1993. Of course, his old band--no, not Wings--played there most famously in the summers of 1964 and '65. “The set hewed considerably closer to the mainstream than his edge-exploring performance last year at the Coachella Music & Arts Festival,” Lewis writes, “and it included a couple of selections he said he’d never played in the U.S. before this tour: ‘Nineteen-Hundred and Eighty-Five’ from Band on the Run and the Beatles’ ‘Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da.’ That perfectly suited Hollywood’s middle-of-the-road crowd, consisting of old-school Beatles fans revisiting their formative years side by side with a sizable contingent of teens and pre-teens smack dab in the middle of theirs, with McCartney and the Beatles as the bond between them.” (4/1a)
