Two music legends showed they are still going strong with impressive performances on
Saturday night that took place across the country from each other. We present pro-shot
footage of both sets for this week's Sunday Cinema column.
Last night at the iHeart Radio Festival in Las Vegas Paul McCartney and
his band debuted three songs of his New album, which will be released next
Macca's eight song set included the first-ever live takes on "Save Me," "Everybody Out
There" and "New" as well as classics "Magical Mystery Tour," "Let Me Roll It," "Another
Day," "Lady Madonna" and "Live And Let Die."
The set was webcast allowing us to present pro-shot footage of the entire set minus "Live
And Let Die" for which we've used a fan-shot clip:
Set: Magical Mystery Tour, Save Us, Let Me Roll It, Everybody Out There, Another Day, New,
Lady Madonna, Live And Let Die
Meanwhile, over 2,000 miles away at SPAC for Farm Aid, Neil Young closed out
the festivities with a seven song set that contained five covers and classics "Old Man"
and "Heart Of Gold" in Saratoga Springs, NY. The performance was banter heavy, which
apparently didn't make at least one fan happy who shouted "c'mon let's go!" as Young was
telling a story, that was presumably about Danny Whitten and Kurt Cobain, which led into a
set-closing cover of Phil Ochs' "Changes." Neil responded, "I'm on my way
buddy. I work for me!" to huge cheers from the crowd. Farm Aid was also webcast and we've
pro-shot videos of the entire set:
Set: Blowin' In The Wind, Early Morning Rain, Old Man, Heart Of Gold, Since I Met You
Baby, Reason To Believe, Changes
