Residents of the Los Angeles area are in for a treat for next week. It’s tough enough to get tickets for Paul McCartney and Justin Timberlake these days, but fans will be able to see them perform for free for consecutive nights on Hollywood Boulevard, albeit within predictably massive crowds.
Sir Paul will appear on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on Sept. 23 and conduct an interview, followed by a live performance for all to see. The following day, Timberlake will appear for an interview with Kimmell, followed by another live performance.
To accommodate the masses on hand, a quarter mile of Hollywood Boulevard will be shut down. For those not in attendance, both concerts will be available for online streaming afterwards via Jimmy Kimmel Live Stream. McCartney’s will go up the next day, while Timberlake’s will appear on Sept. 30, the day his new album, the second installment of “The 20/20 Experience,” is released in America. JT is also going on “Kimmel” to discuss his role in the upcoming crime thriller film “Runner Runner.”
McCartney is appearing to promote new material as well. On Oct. 15, Concord will release his new LP “New,” his first collection of new solo material since 2007’s “Memory Almost Full.”
