McCartney plays Shea Stadium or Central Park

Postby Chris Speers » Fri Apr 05, 2002 10:29 pm

I'd love to see Paul play Shea Stadium or even Central Park. Wouldn't that be cool?

Scene : Central Park - June 18, 2002
McCartney plays the bass intently. His eyes focused on the man in a dark jacket at the edge of the stage. The opening chords to the song sound pure grunge. A few young kids in the front stand at attention. A man moves to his left and clutches two drum sticks. The drum riser is vacant. The profile reveals a prominent nose and a scruffy black beard. It can only be one person....Ringo....

A woman cries in the front row : "It's Yassir Arafat...".

She points as if she is seeing an apparition of Jim Morrison.

Woman: Terrorist...(grabbing a cup of soda and throwing it)..
(Security hustles the woman off stage)...

Ringo shocked by another case of Beatlemania whispers to Paul.

Ringo: Me only wants to sing..and play me drums..

McCartney: New York i brought...You a star...Ringo Starr..

Ringo smacks down a beat that pulses through the arena. He hits the drums like he was John Bonham liquored up on booze and whores. McCartney signals the band as they launch into "Helter Skelter"..

McCartney: When i get back to the bottom...I get back to the top of the slide...

Ringo: (mouthing the words)...Fu$k U2!!

McCartney grins and bits his lower lip in concentration as he wrestles with his bulky rickenbecker and moves back and forth to the crowd. A man appears from the back of the stage...He is dressed in black robes with massive tattoes...It's Ozzy Osborne...

Ozzy: It's coming down fast....Don't let me break you..

McCartney, Ozzy (singing into one mike): Helter Skelter....Helter Skelter..

McCartney pounds the bass as Ozzy jumps up and down...

The central park crowd rocks into a frenzy....

As the audience settles down, Ozzy shocks McCartney and the crowd.
Ozzy speaking slowly into the mike.

Ozzy: (applause)..Thank you Paul...Thank you..New York....(biting a toy rat found on the stage thrown by a fan)...I'd like to do a special song here...

Paul plays piano accompanying Ozzy as Ringo looks up in amazement..

The opening chords of a soft piano ballad are heard...

Ozzy: A love so warm and beautiful...Never Fades away..
Moonlight...morning glory...
Tells the story of our love..
A love so warm and beautiful..
stand in time....Never fades away..

So...Treat her gently...treat her kind...
she doesn't even know her own mind..
Here we sit..Two lonely old people...

Many people start to boo. Even Paul squirms on his piano bench as Ozzy butchers the tender ballad.

A man screams : "Satan"


Another man screams: "Get Amnesty International and save his from this abuse of our civil rights."

Ringo grabs the mike and begins to softly serenade the crowd...

Ringo: Goodnight...Sleep tight...

The crowd begins to calm down..
