Paul McCartney to Perform on Special Colbert Report Episode
Paul McCartney will appear on The Colbert Report for a special episode of the television show on June 12. Sir Paul will perform and do an interview during the one-hour long event. His performance will include songs that are being featured on his current “Out There” tour, as well his new reissue Wings Over America. It will be McCartney’s second appearance on the show, the last time being in January of 2009, when he was interviewed for Cobert’s “Better Know a Beatle” segment.
The upcoming Paul McCartney episode will be The Colbert Report‘s second one-hour extended music special. The first such event took place in September 2011 and featured Radiohead.
