A Review borrowed from the Telegraph by Helen Brown
"Sir Paul McCartney rocks the Electric proms"
Sir Paul McCartney bound onto the stage at the BBC's second "Electric proms" last night and was all bounce, wave, howl and banter. "Do you think he'll do any Beatles stuff?", the man in front of me asked his friend over the roar of welcome from the Camden crowd. We have only seconds to wait for an answer: McCartney burst into a technicolour blast of Magical mystery tour, beckoning the jubilant audience to enjoy the ride as he took us through some of the high points of his 40 year career in rock'n'roll. Bravely acknowledging that most of his finest and best loved songs were written in his Fab Four days, McCartney's set alternates energetic Beatles' songs (Eleanor Rigby, I saw her standing there, Blackbird and a rollicking Back in the USSR) with solo and wings numbers. Exchanging his old golden bass for a jaunty mandolin, the first solo-era tune of the night is Dance tonight - the first single from McCartney's latest album Memory almost full. Playlisted on drivetime radio, the chipper melody can grate, especially the whistled part, but strummed here it has the warmhearted feel of an old-time pub singalong. McCartney's voice has weathered incredibly well - the eyebrows shoot up in concentration and emotion as he hits the high notes, but they always did. And as the brows lift, the knees bend and the singer balances on his toes, drawing attention to the fact his cavern-club era suit is accessorised with a pair of trendy white-heeled trainers.
There's a matey amount of audience interaction between songs. "Two women from California love you", Sir Paul reads, squinting at a sign held up about five rows back. "Only two?" he quips. "Oh dear". Introducing "an old song" I'll follow the sun, he chides the instant cheers saying: "Don't cheer it just because its old!" He clearly wants to be judged on merit and durability rather than for his nostalgia value. But he's a sentimental old hippy himself. Singing a ballad addressed to John Lennon, he openly declares his love for his former bandmate, while acknowledging: "If you were here today, you'd probably laugh". He doesn't openly declare anything about his current personal problems, although in one new song, That was me, he expresses the disconcerting speed at which his life has been travelling. "That was me at the altar, in those pictures". Despite all the Beatles anthems with which he ends the show - Hey Jude, Let it be and Get back - it's McCartney's Bond theme Live and let die, which the punters are humming as they head back out into the rain. Yowling and hammering the piano keys for all he was worth as fireworks banged and fizzed above the stage, the 80s drama of the song really seemed to fire something in McCartney, who left the stage clutching bunches of red roses and a stuffed, white Bond villain cat. Bouncing and waving.
