Upcoming EventsSeptember 28 - Köln/Germany, E-Werk
September 30 - London/England, Leicester Square
Tickets were given out by e.g the Beatles Fan Club Wuppertal www.beatles-club.de, but you still have a slight chance to get your ticket (deadline Monday September 29): Go to www.emimusic.de, select Paul McCartney, then "Games". Answer the question ("why do you think it's you who should be invited to the listening party") and 30 of you with the most convincing arguments will get two tickets.
Apparently some tickets were still available not long ago. Maybe just ask your favourite fan club, ring MPL or EMI, or tune into your favourite radio, maybe they have some to spare.
Wanted: If anyone wants to share her/his personal review of any of these events, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you very much!September 22 - New York City, Hammerstein Ballroom
Run Devil Run Listening Party
As with the Listening Party in L.A., tickets were given out by fan magazines etc. John Fugelsang was announcer (remember him from the Bishopsgate event?). Paul again said how the album was recorded, then the album was played. Finally Paul came out again and answered questions to the fans - for about 20 minutes! September 18 - Los Angeles, Paramount Studios
The PETA Gala will be shown on VH-1 (USA - if anyone knows anything about VH-1 Germany or UK, please let me know!) in October. The webcast itself did not work out very well again. Distortions and choppy images most of the time - thanks to www.broadcastisland.com (they appear to have rebroadcasts). I wonder why last year's internet broadcasts worked so well - and now this. Anyway, Paul has performed 6 songs from his new album: Honey Hush, Brown Eyed Handsome Man, No Other Baby, Try Not To Cry, Lonesome Town and Run Devil Run. Only the latter 3 were broadcast on the net.
Entertainment Tonight and Access Hollywood had reports on Paul and the PETA Gala. September 17 - Los Angeles, House of Blues
Run Devin Run Listening Party
Tickets for this party were given away for free, e.g. by Good Day Sunshine magazine or Beatlefest.
First, Paul got on the stage and introduced the album. Then a 10-minute video on the making of the album followed. Finally, the album was played, accompanied by slides on two video screens with quotes and drawings by Paul. The show was not over since Paul appeared on stage again. Capitol handed him an award for 60 million solo albums sold. Paul would then thank the audience for coming. September 7 - New York City, Roseland Ballroom
The Buddy Holly Dance Party
Well, Paul came on stage last and performed "Rave On" with The Crickets - "unrehearsed" he said. The live internet broadcast was a shame, though. The reception was extremely poor, if it worked at all, and this was the case all over the world so we actually must blame www.liveonthenet.com for this! For us Europeans, it was certainly not worth spending the whole night on it ...
