Hollywood Blvd. shut down for Paul McCartney concert

By Randall Roberts

Paul McCartney doesn’t really need the publicity, but when he desires it he sure can make a dent. On Monday he and his band shut down a stretch of Hollywood Boulevard to perform a handful of songs for a lucky few thousand as part of “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” Many in the crowd had been waiting much of the day for a chance to catch the ex-Beatle in action.

Flanked by the El Capitan and Dolby theaters, McCartney was pushing his forthcoming album “New” by doing a few songs for TV, but stuck around for a set that included older songs we wanted to hear.

His list was full of big-ticket songs. He and his touring band tore through Beatles classics “Hey Jude,” “Let It Be,” “Back in the USSR,” “Magical Mystery Tour,” “Birthday,” “Lady Madonna” and more, and peppered in solo and Wings songs such as “Band on the Run,” “Another Day,” “Jet” and three new works, including the excellent title track.
