Paul McCartney will brace himself ‘ literally ‘ when he makes his first appearance ever on David Letterman this Wednesday.
McCartney and his band will play not on the stage of the Ed Sullivan Theater but on its marquee, this column has learned.
Of course, McCartney played many times with the Beatles on the Sullivan stage some 45 years ago.
I’m told the marquee will be braced from below and that only Paul and his band will be up on the roof. The audience will remain indoors. Letterman presumably will, too.
Broadway ‘ already a traffic nightmare thanks to Mayor Bloomberg’s office ‘ will be shut down for several blocks during rush hour Wednesday to accomplish this feat.
