Though Morrissey’s vegetarian rants during his Coachella set were priceless, we find it hard to believe no one is talking about Paul McCartney‘s set at the festival. Or rather, what was being displayed on the jumbo-tron behind the musician while he played “Got to Get You Into My Life” during his set.
Visuals from the new game The Beatles: Rock Band were unexpectedly streamed live as McCartney (who is also vegetarian as you can see) played the Beatles’ song for fans. As we have told you already, the game isn’t due out till 09.09.09, but the McCartney-set-teaser is making us assume the song will make it onto the final product and at least some of the tablature is done.
During McCartney’s set photo privileges were restricted, but we still managed to get some video footage of the performance for you to see and relish in. McCartney’s website has also confirmed that the footage behind the artist was indeed the new Beatles game, minus the notes and lyrics. As cool an unexpected as this is, we’re still trying to figure out what the big deal over Morrissey’s vocal complaints about the smell of burning flesh and “dry heaving during ‘Girlfriend’ in a coma from the smell of BBQ,” as one of our photographers explained, really is.
