    ....in Japan

    http://www.examiner.com/article/paul-mccartney-records-surprise-birthday-tribute-japan-spoiler-alert

    During a recent soundcheck before a concert at the Kyocera Dome in Osaka, Japan, Paul McCartney and his band, along with a small audience, performed a celebratory birthday tribute to a well known American celebrity who will be turning 60 on January 12.

    Before “Happy Birthday,†McCartney said to those in attendance:

    I don’t know if anybody knows Howard Stern ... Have you ever heard of him? ... Me neither .... He’a D.J. in New York. We’re just going to do a little “Happy Birthday†thing to him, OK? So at the end of it, if we say, “Happy Birthday, Howard,†at the camera, and we put the lights on the guys. Can we do that? Can we light up the fans?


    McCartney then proceeded to perform the song, with his singing modeled after Marilyn Monroe’s interpretation, including a reference to a “Mr. President ... I mean Howard ...†After wishing Stern a happy birthday from Osaka, Japan, he led his combo into a truncated version of “Shortnin’ Bread.â€

    Of course McCartney was kidding when he said he hadn’t heard of “The King of All Media.†He has appeared on Stern’s radio program three times: Earlier this year, way back in 2001, and for Stern’s 55th birthday in 2009. During the latter, McCartney gave Stern an autographed Hofner bass guitar.

    One of the funniest bits ever on the show was Stern’s pouting the day after McCartney gave him the instrument. Stern mock complained he was disappointed the bass was a replica, not the one he played with the Beatles. Stern has since told listeners he proudly displays it in a glass case in his home. Stern has also met the former Beatle on numerous other occasions, and McCartney even once unexpectedly called Stern at home.

    Although Stern turns 60 on the 12th, the Sirius XM on-air celebration will take place on January 31 at New York’s Hammerstein Ballroom. More information at Stern’s official site.

    Paul McCartney makes $40 million during six-show Japanese tour

    A giant Beatle "did some damage" during his romp through Japan, and that's not a reference to the nation's classic monster films. Paul McCartney was the highest earner on Billboard's final Hot Tours list of 2013, and much of that was thanks to the six-date stretch he spent in Japan during November.

    According to reports from the music industry publication, McCartney's tour in support of new album New brought in around $105.8 million during 2013. Numbers from the last leg of the bassist's tour suggest that $40.6 million of that was made in his six-show stretch in Japan.

    It was McCartney's first touring trip to Japan in 11 years, and fans made the most of it. He began with a two-night series in Osaka on November 11-12 at the Kyocera Dome. The venue, also the city's major league baseball stadium, seats 50,000, and both shows sold out, bringing in $11.6 million per gig, a $3.4 million jump since the last time McCartney was in town.

    The former Beatle also headed to Tokyo selling out all three nights of his stay at the Tokyo Dome. Nearly 147,000 tickets were sold, totaling $23.4 million in revenue, another jump from his 2002 tour. In between his dates in Osaka and Tokyo, McCartney played one show at the Yafuoka! Dome in Fukuoka, which brought in an additional $6.6 million, if we did the math right........................

    Seems quite applicable to Howard. I wonder can Oats hang in there for another 4 years or will she cash out?

    If Howard is keeping a tight lid on the marboes then she'll be singing this tune...listen to the first verse...very appropriate :)

    Spoiled Howard was legitimately disappointed when he realized that one of his staff (Gary) bought the guitar for McCartney to sign. For a moment I actually think that Howard thought that Paul McCartney planned ahead to bring him an autographed guitar....what a dumb fuck. The autograph snub was the best, especially with Chris Rock witnessing the whole thing.

    you notice last week Howard actually did the intro's to the tapes and they sounded live, not taped, probably by ISDN line. I think that allowed him to count those as live shows. He got that trick from Oprah

    ...i think sir paul is a bit of a ying and yang smartass type sometimes. when saying to the crowd in japan, "do you know who howard is, yeah i dont either" thats his way of saying why the fuck am i doing this. he did it for sirius, hes sir paul he doesnt give 2 shits about a disk jockey that makes "comedy" by mocking retarding people and pauls go as much need to see or hear a stripper as smokey the bear needs a lighter.
