Jon Bon Jovi as U.S. Tour Wraps & Paul Mccartney Introduces Bruce Springsteen Stadium Review!

The only thing better than seeing one rock star perform live is seeing three of them at once.

For the final concert of his “Got Back” tour across North America, Paul McCartney played to a sold-out crowd at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

On Thursday, the legendary musician and one-quarter of The Beatles performed with special guests Bruce Springsteen and Jon Bon Jovi.

Concertgoer Brian Marschhauser, 34, of Yorktown, New York, told The Post, “Seeing Paul and Bruce together is nothing short of magical.”

That this could happen was reinforced by my 2017 experience watching them perform together at MSG. Even so, I went completely insane when Paul first introduced him, and I found myself chanting “Bruuuuuce!” along with the rest of the room.

McCartney and The Boss performed two songs together, McCartney’s “Glory Days” and The Beatles’ “I Wanna Be Your Man,” before inviting Bon Jovi to take the stage.

Mccartney Teased the Audience

Bruce’s vocal performance on “Glory Days” was praised as “incredible.” He’s prepared to head out on his own tour. In 2022, to see those musical icons performing at this level is special,” Marschhauser said.

The MetLife Stadium audience slowly begins to arrive for Paul McCartney’s concert.

Many people are beginning to file into MetLife Stadium for Paul McCartney’s concert.

At MetLife Stadium, Paul McCartney and his band are currently performing for fans as part of his “Got Back” tour.

It’s safe to say that the dynamic duo brought the heat nine years after his successful guest appearance at McCartney’s London show in 2013.

In September 2017, Springsteen, Steven Van Zandt, and McCartney performed together at New York City’s Madison Square Garden.

After their stellar Thursday performance, Springsteen toasted, “Here’s to 80 more years of glory days.”

Steven Merrill, 23, from North Plainfield, NJ, told The Post that Bruce “looked and sounded as good as ever” and that he was “ready for his E Street Band tour in 2023.”

Amazingly, just two days before his 80th birthday, Sir Paul played for over three hours. Unbelievable, that’s all there is to say. According to Merrill, “the audience lapped it up.” “The entire stadium was standing for the better part of the evening.”

The MetLife Stadium

Reports indicate that the entire MetLife Stadium crowd spent the majority of the evening on its feet.

Near the end of the show, the crowd began to feel like they had seen everything the performer had to offer.

McCartney turns 80 on Saturday, and shortly after that, the legendary Jon Bon Jovi took the stage to sing “Happy Birthday” to his pal.

Bon Jovi showed up for his friend’s birthday party with a bunch of balloons in hand.

Raymond Lozada-Negron, a New York City resident and concertgoer, told The Post, “Paul was clearly surprised when a few thousand of the audience members began singing ‘Happy Birthday to him.” Paul was taken aback, and you could tell he did not anticipate that. The two shared a birthday kiss, and then Bon Jovi presented Paul with a balloon.

People in the audience always go crazy for Paul. Paul plays for three hours at every concert — without taking a break — and he’s 80 years old, but he sounds like he’s in his twenties, according to Lozada-Negron.

Bon Jovi posted a photo of himself and Paul McCartney performing “Happy Birthday” in front of 50,000 fans in New Jersey with the caption, “Bon Jovi sings Happy Birthday to Paul McCartney.”

Abbey Road

The Boss played guitar during the final “Abbey Road” medley of the show, which caused the crowd to go wild.

Bruce and Jon Bon Jovi’s surprise appearance at the end of the show was a highlight. That’ll certainly stick in my mind. That was such a magical evening,” Marschhauser gushed to The Post.

McCartney closed the show with a medley from the Beatles’ album “Abbey Road.”

Paul said, “See you next time,” and that was the last thing he said that night. Tomorrow he’ll be 80, but I still had faith in him. He sounded fantastic, and he clearly has no plans to slow down any time soon.

McCartney is scheduled to perform as the festival’s main act on June 24 in his native England.
