Last night, Paul McCartney brought his continuing One on One tour to New York’s famed Madison Square Garden for a performance heavy on Beatles favorites and featuring a couple of very special guests as Sir Paul brought out Bruce Springsteen and guitarist Steven Van Zandt during the encore.
As Jambase reports, after kicking off his encore with Beatles favorites “Yesterday,” “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band (Reprise)” and “Helter Skelter,” McCartney referenced the last time he and Springsteen shared the stage back in 2012 at London’s Hyde Park, when the venue’s curfew caused the power to be cut off during the collaboration.
The duo and Springsteen’s E Street band mate Van Zandt made up for that by treating the crowd to a double dose of the early Beatles cut “I Saw Her Standing There,” with McCartney and Springsteen sharing vocals. After concluding the first round, McCartney addressed the crowd, saying, “I reckon we gotta play it one more time.” Watch the collaborative performance above.
McCartney and his band return to the Garden stage tomorrow night for his second and final night at the venue before moving to Brooklyn’s Barclays Center for two shows next week.
