If you have the opportunity to see Paul McCartney perform in an intimate club setting - the legendary Cavern Club in Liverpool, no less - probably don't screw it up.
Paul McCartney stopped halfway through "Twenty Flight Rock" last night to scold members of the audience who were taking photos and video despite the understanding that photography and videography was expressly forbidden.
"You’ve all been told not to take photos," McCartney said. "You’re taking them, and you’re taking them, and it’s putting me off! So, you know, play by the rules, man!"
"The phone thing," he said. "I went to a Prince concert and he really was serious about that. He wouldn’t start, you know. Put ‘em down! You know what I’m saying?”
He's not wrong. People need to put theirs phones away and enjoy the experience of live music again. YOU DON'T WATCH PAUL MCCARTNEY PERFORM THROUGH A PHONE.
McCartney expressed a desire to play more intimate shows in the lead-up to the Sept. 7 release of his new album, Egypt Station.
