Paul McCartney Set For Hour-Long 'The Colbert Report' Appearance
Paul McCartney will appear on Comedy Central's The Colbert Report as the sole guest on a one-hour music special on Wednesday, June 12th at 11:30 p.m. In addition to being interviewed by Colbert, McCartney will perform tracks from his newly reissued 1976 Wings Over America set and selections from his current Out There tour. According to the press release, an additional track will be made available exclusively at www.ColbertNation.com. McCartney had previously appeared on The Colbert Report in 2009, but next week's show marks his first musical performance on the comedy news show.
 
McCartney's new show seamlessly blends both Beatles and Wings classics with rarities from both bands. We asked him how he decides what songs make the cut in his concerts: "You've just got to judge it between rare and stuff that people still know. If you just do a whole big bunch of songs that nobody knows, that's kind of all right for a club. But I think when you've got these big arenas, I've gotta give 'em a kind of night out that I would want. So that includes hits. We do some that they don't know so well and then some that they know all too well."
