In 1964, when the Beatles first landed on America soil, the place that the Fab Four wanted to visit more than any other was the world famous Apollo Theater. The group put the Apollo at the top of their list of important places because of the rich history of legendary artists. Without any doubt, the Beatles have left their imprint not only on music, but also the world.
As a solo artist, Paul McCartney has burned a blazing trail of classic hits that include "Band On The Run", "One More Lonely Night", "Live And Let Die", "Coming Up", "Silly Love Songs" and "My Love". Sir Paul has also topped the soul charts with duets by two Apollo legends - Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson.
We are delighted that Paul McCartney has once again chosen to visit the Apollo Theater. This time, he is scheduled to perform in front of a live audience to celebrate the re-release of "Band On The Run" - the 1973 Grammy Award-winning album that reached number one across global charts.
Tonight's private concert is presented by SiriusXM Radio in celebration of its 20 million subscribers. Patrons who are invited to attend this concert were members of the station before November 15, 2010.
