VIDEO: Paul McCartney rocks Shea stadium with last song.

Paul McCartney was the closing surprise guest at Billy Joel’s blowout concert celebrating the raising and demolition of the famed Shea Stadium in New York City.

The closing musical performance couldn’t have been more appropriate.  Billy Joel shared the spotlight with a musical icon who ushered in the idea of stadium rock, and was among the first artist to headline Shea Stadium in the first place.  The house was truly rocking.

Here are two of the best video clips out there, so far, of Paul’s Shea Stadium farewell performances.

  5. Awesome ! I hope I get to see him perform in person
    one of these days !!!

  6. I just got back home from Quebec for the concert.
