The MusiCares Tribute to Paul McCartney occurred back in February 2012, but now many of the performances from the concert are available on DVD and Blu-ray.
The tribute concert film not only features artists like Alicia Keys, Duane Eddy, Coldplay and James Taylor covering legendary singer/songwriter/bassist/multi-instrumentalist’s work from his tenures in The Beatles and Wings, as well as from his solo career, but also the man himself.
McCartney performs “Magical Mystery Tour,” “Junior’s Farm,” “Nineteen Hundred and Eighty Five,” and “My Valentine.” He also plays with the Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl and legendary rock guitarist Joe Walsh on the “Golden Slumbers/Carry That Weight/The End,” medley from The Beatles’ Abbey Road.
Proceeds from the DVD will go to MusiCares, which provides help to people who are in need within the music community.
