Sir Paul McCartney is set to do three shows next month, July 2009, at the new Citi Field stadium for the New York Mets, according to his publicist, George Anderson. The former Beatle will be the first concert to rock the new stadium after performing at Shea Stadium's last concert last year.
Paul has asked that the three nights of concerts be attended by people who are willing to donate some money for some of his fellow stars who lost billions of dollars last year due to the bad economy, divorce suits and "that asshole, Bernard Madoff investment schemes.
Losing over three billion between them, the concerts will certainly come at the right time for Clive Carter, Lord Andrew Lloyd-Webber, Sir Paul himself, Sir Cameron Mackintosh, Simon Fuller, Sir Mick Jagger, Sting, Sir Elton John, Keith Richards, Olivia and Dhani Harrison and Sir Tim Rice.
"It was certainly a painful year and these guys are hanging on with Elton now down to only 175 million, so please come and give what you can."
"There will certainly be guest stars showing up during the three nights of concerts so you'll get your money's worth."
"These guys have always been there for you when you'd just split from your mate or lost a job or your mum...with a song to stir your heart. Now it's your turn."
"Show them that you care!"
