Paul to perform at PETA's Millenium Party; live internet broadcast

(excerpt from USA Today)
"Paul is keeping Linda's issue alive: on Sept. 18, with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals' Party of the Century and Humanitarian Awards at Paramount Studios in L.A.
        Paul will perform several numbers from his Run Devil Run album, due in October. This is major news for fans, since he won't be touring.
        Even better, the show and awards will be seen in October or November on VH1 in the USA; international distribution is planned. "It's the biggest thing we've ever done, our first TV special," says Dan Mathews of PETA, which Linda supported. He says the $350 tickets already are being scalped on line for $1,000 .
        McCartney's album has songs that inspired The Beatles from legends including Elvis and Chuck Berry. McCartney's band for the PETA show will include Pink Floyd guitarist/singer David Gilmour and Foreigner founder Mick Jones.
        At the event, Pamela Anderson Lee will get the Linda McCartney Memorial Award. Designer Stella McCartney, Paul and Linda's daughter, also is an honoree, as is a pack of animal lovers including Bill Maher, Steven Seagal, James Cromwell, Sheryl Lee and Richard Pryor.
        Paul will intro a video tribute to Linda, with Sarah McLachlan doing a song from her new album. Hosts are Alec Baldwin, Jamie Lee Curtis, Woody Harrelson and Ellen DeGeneres.
        The action includes a party on Paramount's New York set, a vegan dinner and street fair."

For all of us who cannot attend: The event is broadcast live in the internet! See http://www.peta-online.org/gala/index.html

Did you know that... Yellow Submarine (the movie) has been carefully restored (great colors, sharp and crisp images), missing scenes have been added (Hey Bulldog), and the entire sound is in 5.1 surround and full of special sound effects Even all the songs have been remixed for 5.1 surround There will be a new "Yellow Submarine Songtrack" CD that has a new track lineup: it now contains all the Beatles songs from the movie. A lot of effort has been put into this CD: all the songs have been remixed, not just remastered. That is the engineers went back to the original multitrack tapes. Back then there weren't enough tracks available so the Beatles would "mix down" several tracks into one in order to gain vacant tracks for further overdubs. They would even repeat this procedure several times. The downside was that the balance of various instruments was set in stone and could not be changed in the mix. Now the engineers carefully re-synced several generations of multitrack mastertapes and all the mixes could be done in a way never possible before (i.e. a true surround mix for the movie). And we even get some Revolver and Pepper tracks in this greatly upgraded quality:
