Paul McCartney Is Back With A Bang — And A Proposal [Video]

Paul McCartney is finally getting “out there” again.  The former Beatle launched the U.S. leg of his “Out There” U.S. Tour 2014 on Saturday with his first-ever performance in Albany, New York.

And with it, he made one thing very clear: he is not only well recovered from his recent illness, but he’s ready to rock. “Good evening, Albany,” he said with a big grin at the outset. “I’ve a feeling we’re going to have a little bit of fun tonight.”

During the show, which included songs from the Beatles catalog as well as Wings – and of course, his own solo material – Sir Paul found time for love. As it happens, there was a couple in the audience who each held signs explaining the “he said/she said” of “he won’t marry me until he meets you.” Well, it worked. Macca brought the couple on stage and all the business was taken care of to the cheering approval of the audience.

Up next, Sir Paul will stop in Pittsburgh tonight and before he’s done, his trek will include stops in cities where he has never played before – including Lubbock, Texas; Missoula, Montana; Louisville, Kentucky; and Greensboro, North Carolina.  Over the course of the run McCartney will also headline the final concert at San Francisco’s Candlestick Park, where The Beatles played the last show of their final tour 48 years ago.  And don’t forget, the tour has 20 confirmed stops right now, but more dates are expected to be added.  Make-goods for all the postponed shows have been set for October, and McCartney has said he intends to fill the gaps in his schedule with more shows.

Here’s some audio highlights from Macca’s performance:
