Sir Paul McCartney rose to the pinnacle of the world of rock when he wrote, played, and sang with a group that included John Lennon, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr (now what was the name of that group?). Then he went on to achieve even greater fame with his own group, Wings, becoming what the Guiness Book of World Records has called the "most successful composer and recording artist of all time."
Actor, singer, and recording artist Tony Kishman doubles as featured performer and producer of Live & Let Die—A Symphonic Tribute to the Music of Paul McCartney. Veteran of the Broadway hit Beatlemania, Kishman has toured worldwide with productions of Twist and Shout, Classical Mystery Tour, All You Need Is Love, and Legends in Concert, and he was featured in the classic rock band Wishbone Ash. Tony is an accomplished musician and singer who performs absolutely live without lip syncing or tricks.
Live & Let Die—A Symphonic Tribute to the Music of Paul McCartney features a four-piece band including Tony Kishman and Jim Owen on keyboards, guitar, bass and vocals; John Merjave on guitar; Chris Camilleri on drums and vocals; and the full Dayton Philharmonic led by our own Neal Gittleman. You’ll hear, complete in every detail, his most famous Beatles tunes, McCartney solo works, and of course, those great hits from the Wings era.
Some of the songs featured in the set include "Hey Jude," "Penny Lane," "Live and Let Die," "Yesterday," "My Love," "Uncle Albert," "Let It Be," "Maybe I’m Amazed," "Hello, Goodbye," "The Long and Winding Road," "Get Back," "Silly Love Songs," "Jet," "Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band," and many more.
