Last night I went to the brilliant show Macca: Celebrating the Music of Paul McCartney. It starred Emanuele Angeletti as Paul – who also played Paul in the great Beatles show ‘Let it Be’.
This show is not a Beatles show though, it was mainly Paul songs after the Beatles. The first part was similar to a ‘Wings Over America’ gig and the second part lots of songs from the 80s and beyond, with a few Beatles songs too. Emanuele sang many songs that Paul McCartney has never done live, like Say Say Say (a brilliant duet with a female singer – which I thought worked much better than Paul with Michael Jackson) No More Lonely Nights (a real highlight here) and Pipes of Peace.
The whole show was a delight from beginning to end. Emanuleles vocals were spot on, and the musicianship immense. I especially loved the brass section – really going back to the Wings days!
The show is touring throughout the the UK – and is a must see! For more on the show, and to book tickets, go to http://www.maccathepaulmccartneystory.com/
