Home Music McCartney Ready for Yankee Stadium, But Without Billy Joel

At first it seemed like we’d be getting a tradition. Billy Joel closed Shea Stadium with Paul McCartney as a guest. Then Paul opened CitiField with Billy as a guest. Two years later, fans might hope that Billy would guest again for McCartney at Yankee Stadium. The ex Beatle is playing two shows there this weekend, Friday and Saturday. Alas, it doesn’t seem to be in the cards. Right now Billy is expected to be a seated guest on Saturday night. He has no plans to play with McCartney from what I’m told. Maybe minds will change before Saturday’s show is over. Right now, those of going on Friday night can look forward to a great show, I’m told, with lots of “new” old songs and, of course, fireworks like crazy during “Live and Let Die.” Check here for a full report on Friday, very late.
