We have to be up early tomorrow so we're recording Macca and will watch it tomorrow. We watched Olivia Rodrigo tonight - very watchable, even for a chap of a certain age (*wink emoticon*), but last night I'd watched Billie Eilish. It was my good fortune to record her set, and Mrs Steve and I watched it tonight (so my second time!)

Well, no comparison. Olivia was nice and poppy and lovely, but Billie Eilish is a class apart. She's precisely the kick up the backside that popular music has needed for decades. Brilliant.

Incredible performance which seemed to be uniting all ages in appreciation of those great songs. He must have been absolutely exhausted by the end - the band was incredibly good as well.

Only criticism perhaps flying David Grohl and Bruce Springsteen in for cameos after Greta Thunberg's speech?

Glad I didn't have to go back to a tent though.

Sadly MCartney's voice (at 80 !!) ) is no longer what it used to be but you have to admire the stamina anyone who could handle a nearly 3 hour performance at his age. I agree the band was superb, professional and well drilled, even down to the Choreographed Brass section !! , can anyone Identify the other Musicians ?? apart from the imported "Guest stars" !!!.

I was travelling home from an afternoon/early-evening gig I’d been playing with the band in Buckinghamshire, and the A1 was closed north of Stamford, so a long diversion through Oakham and Melton Mowbray to rejoin the A1 at Grantham, and then onwards to my home, meant that I was able to listen to most of Macca’s show.

At the age of 80, it’s hardly surprising that his voice has gone to a great degree but, whereas many (most?) ageing singers drop the keys of their songs to suit their loss of upper-register, McCartney refuses to do that, and performs them in the keys he sang them in as a young(er) man. That, in itself, is an amazing feat, but to do so for an entire, almost-three-hour, high-energy set is astonishing, and would put many (most?) of the younger performers to shame.

Backed by his superb, tight-as-a-nut band, Macca’s show was a tour-de-force. Immense power, brilliant (goes without saying!) songs, roared out by the absolute, consummate professional - I am completely in awe of the man, his catalogue, his performance talent, and his musicians. He’s the Full Nine Yards.

The usual disclaimers apply - IMHO, YMMV.

Yeah, it’s ‘each to his own’ Dave - I certainly ‘get’ that, I just don’t ‘get’ BE (and I very much doubt I’m her target audience, so it’s really not surprising!). But if others do ‘get’ her, all power to their collective elbows.

Take a look at the comments under any recording from the '60s or '70s on youtube, and you'll see any number of pronouncements to the effect of, "Now that's real music! Not like that noise the kids are listening to nowadays!" How a guy (and it's always guys) can say something like that without hearing his father, a grouchy teacher, or some random opinionated middle-aged stranger from his youth, I don't know ... even if I agree with sentiment ... !

Yep. Disappointing sound (true of pretty much everything I’ve seen - they just don’t seem able to get a good balance for TV, and it all sounds as though it’s coming down an echoey tube), and Alison’s vocals weren’t loud enough (Plant leaves me a bit chilly, but I’m an enormous AKUS fan).

They were good, I love their music, but I can’t help but feel they were let down by the sound, at least as far as TV was concerned - they may well have sounded great in the flesh.

I didn't think that the sound level balance between the band and the singing was ideal in the McCartney gig, at least not on my recording. And Bonzo, you can't change the balance just by cranking up the volume! I did it anyway (lack of near-neighbours has its upside...)

”I think you need to turn up the sound to deafening!!”

No. It’s a widely-held fallacy that music needs to be very loud to sound its best. At high volumes, ‘deafening’ as you put it, subtleties and nuances are lost in the overall ‘mush’ that over-loaded ear-drums perceive. Having played in bands (of almost every kind, jazz, brass, and classical being the only kinds I haven’t played) for the past 60 years, and still doing it, I prefer to hear well-balanced, technically excellent audio at sensible volumes.

Also, I live in a semi, I’m a considerate human being, and I don’t choose to inflict my tastes in music on my very good neighbours.

Guest seems to be making the same mistake as producers of pop CDs. Half the point of the CD is that it gives a greatly increased dynamic range compared to the LP, without having to use as much compression to raise the quiet bits above the noise floor. Sadly, pop producers got into a loudness war AND TRIED TO OUTSHOUT ONE ANOTHER, by essentially putting the digital signal through a mincer JUST BECAUSE THEY COULD, and all bands ended up sounding like the same mincemeat with different brand names.

Happily the delusion seems to have abated somewhat since the Noughties, and bands can sound like themselves again (unless they wish not to). But I still find myself seeing "digitally remastered" on CD covers and misreading it as "digitally denatured".

.... If you really must punish your eardrums, use headphones. Just don't make my mistake of trying to sing along with it: if you can't hear yourself, you'll sing flat, which is even less neighbour-friendly.

For Henry Piper (of Ottery), who asked above who was in the Macca band...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_McCartney_Band

I guess playing together for 20 years makes an ensemble either very jaded or in this case very sharp.
