Paul McCartney’s weekend in Memphis began with a trip to Elvis’ home at Graceland, and ended with a visit to FedExForum, as the Beatles legend left a capacity crowd buzzing with his first performance in the Bluff City in 20 years on Sunday night.
Sandwiched in between a pair of Grizzlies playoff games, McCartney’s concert at the arena reaffirmed his place as the popular champion among his ‘60s rock survivors. While he may lack Bob Dylan’s inscrutable air of mystery, or the visceral outlaw excitement of the Rolling Stones, McCartney is an unapologetic people pleaser. He delivered a nearly 40-song, three-hour set of Beatles classics, rarities, tributes and favorites from his Wings and solo catalog, a truly epic and awe-inspiring performance from a man just a few weeks shy of his 71st birthday.
