Paul McCartney Got Back Tour Kick Off Show Includes John Lennon 'Duet' - Watch

Paul McCartney took the stage for the first time in two years this week in - playing an intimate show in Spokane, WA.  

 

“They said, ‘Get back,’ and we got back. And it feels cool ... You’ll have to give me a moment to myself, just to let me take this in.” 

 

With a catalog as extensive as his - McCartney doesn’t need any additional hype to pack his concerts .. but that's not the case on this tour.   

 

For his performance of “I’ve Got A Feeling” - Paul was accompanied by archival  footage of John Lennon, taken from Peter Jackson’s Disney+ documentary “The Beatles: Get Back”.

 

Check out the two crooning 'alongside' each other.

 

 

 

“So, Peter Jackson, the director of the ‘Get Back’ film, he texts me one day. And he says, ‘We can extract John’s voice. He can sing with you live,’” McCartney told the roaring crowd after the song finished.

 

Here is some more more crowd shot footage of the show ... and hopefully a preview of what we'll see in June in Baltimore!

Kurt Cobain's Fender Mustang from Nirvana's 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' Video Is Up for Auction

Pretty much anything Kurt Cobain touched has gone for big bucks when it hit the auction block.  Someone paid $22,400 for a plate he wrote their 9:30 Club set list on after using it to eat a slice of pizza.  

 

 

Next month - the Nirvana frontman’s 1969 left-handed Fender Mustang guitar, witha Competition Lake Placid blue finish with a matching headstock - used in the video for the band's break out hit Smells Like Teen Spirit - will hit the auction block.

The guitar is expected to go for $600,000 to $800,000 at auction and a portion of the proceeds will go to Kicking The Stigma, an initiative aimed at raising awareness about mental health disorders and removing the stigmas that come with discussing mental health.

 

Along with other items belonging the Cobain, the auction will feature items from  The Beatles, Eddie Van Halen, QUEEN, Elvis Presley, Lady Gaga, Michael Jackson, Madonna, Little Richard, Elton John, Bob Dylan, Erica Clapton, Cher, Bob Marley, Jimi Hendrix and more.  Check it out at juliensauctions.com
