Paul McCartney Surprises Queens Highschool
Submitted by Drew F on October 10, 2013
Paul McCartney is back in the spotlight again. Sir Paul graced 400 lucky students at the Tony Bennett Concert Hall at the Frank Sinatra School of the Arts in Astoria, Queens (New York) with a surprise concert. Sir Paul took the stage just a little after 2 pm. Before launching into the Beatles classic "Eight Days A Week," McCartney addressed the crowd with a big smile on his face, "This beats going to class." McCartney proceeded to play a 90 minute set that included a plethora of Beatles and Wings classics. McCartney also played three tracks off of New. McCartney didn't just perform, in-between songs he interacted with the crowd and did some Q & A sessions as well. This was certainly a performance that the students of the Frank Sinatra School of the Arts will not forget. Although most of the songs performed were written about 30 years before most of the audience was born, it's clear that Sir Paul McCartney's musical influence isn't going away anytime soon.
