Paul McCartney & Conan O’Brien Set For NYC Chat
Paul McCartney and Conan O’Brien will be live and in conversation on June 15th in Manhattan at Tribeca’s OKX Theater at BMCC TPAC. The pair will discuss “Macca’s” new book, 1964: Eyes Of The Storm, which will be published on June 13th. Due to venue capacity and an anticipated high-level of interest, pass holder access for this event will be limited and on a first come, first served basis.
The chat will be recorded for a future episode of O’Brien’s podcast, Conan O’Brien Needs A Friend.
1964: Eyes Of The Storm, features 275-shots of long unseen “Macca” photographs spotlighting the Beatles in six city portfolios — Liverpool, London, Paris, New York, Washington, D.C. and Miami — along with his own personal recollections of the photos. An exhibit of the photos will be shown in England’s National Portrait Gallery this summer.
Paul McCartney said the Beatles had some idea that they’d be successful here before they flew to New York: “We were in Paris one time, playing the Olympia in Paris, when back at the hotel, a telegram came through from Capitol Records of America to Brian. He came running in the room, he said, ‘You’re Number One in America!’ Well. . . just, I mean, I can’t describe the feeling. We just, (screams) ‘Hey HEY!'”
