McCartney Plays The Apollo

The amphitheaters, stadiums and large arenas Paul McCartney usually finds himself playing leave the former Beatle missing the more direct connection with an audience smaller venues make possible.  The urge to get back to where he once belonged has led him to book some smaller shows, starting with the Apollo, the legendary Harlem venue that played host to many of the R&B acts the Beatles, Stones and other UK acts worshiped in their early days.  During MCCA's performance at his musical Mecca Monday (12/13) he told the audience packed into the 1,475 seat theater, 'To us British boys it's, like, really special. It's a magical place' before he and his band did the Marvin Gaye song Hitch Hike.
In addition to intimate holiday concerts planned in London and Liverpool (story), McCartney has also announced that he will make an appearance Friday (12/17) at the 100 Club,  the endangered 350 seat London venue Ron Wood and former members of the Rolling Stones performed in earlier this month (story).
