Sir Paul McCartney has announced that he’ll be releasing “Good Evening New York City,” on November 23, 2009. The DVD and CD are culled from his legendary shows at the new Shea Stadium (Citi Field) in New York, where the Beatles played the largest shows ever (at the time), many moons ago.
The standard release will feature 2 CDs and 1 DVD. A deluxe edition will feature a bonus DVD of Sir Paul’s Ed Sullivan Theater appearance that took place a few days prior to the re-christening of Shea Stadium.
If you’ll recall, and I’m sure you do, I attended the opening night show and it was every bit as legendary as you would have expected. You can see the setlist from that gig (which will most likely be the tracklist for the upcoming CD and DVD package) here.

Paul McCartney played the first ever concert at Citi Field, formerly known as the parking lot across from Shea Stadium tonight in Queens, New York. Shea Stadium, if you’ll recall, was where the Beatles played the largest gig ever in the United States in 1964.
We braved the pouring rain as Paul played hit after hit from the Beatles and Wings on this historic night. He hit the stage around 9 pm and played for a solid 2 and a half hours. Don’t worry if you missed this show, it was recorded for a future live DVD release.
Macca dedicated songs to John Lennon, George Harrison and Linda McCartney, though kept silent about Michael Jackson. Billy Joel guested on stage during “I Saw Her Standing There.” It was a night to remember.
