A review of Paul's show...

... by the Boston Herald.

He rocked new songs: “Highway” boomed like Cream with electronica overtones, while “Sing the Changes,” complete with Edge guitar and Larry Mullen drums, came off like top-notch U2. And he rocked old songs: “I’m Down” had a Ramones vibe, and “Helter Skelter” became a wicked sonic mess.

Between rockers (“Band On The Run, “Back In The USSR” and literally a dozen more), Paul got gushy. He recounted the origin of “Blackbird” as a civil rights ballad, dedicated “Here Today” to John Lennon and saluted George Harrison with “Something,” played on a ukulele the Quiet One gave him. Hmm, where was the Ringo Starr love?
