Paul McCartney sits down with David Letterman next week

On Wednesday, July 15, Sir Paul McCartney will return to the stage of the Ed Sullivan Theater 45 years after he first played there with the Beatles. He will chat with Dave and perform a song to promote his upcoming U.S. tour.

It's McCartney's first-ever appearance on "Late Show." He's not a regular presence on talk shows, so this will be a rare treat. He did appear in a segment titled "Better Know a Beatle" on "The Colbert Report" back in January, and was a guest on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" in 2005. As far as Talk Show News can determine, his last real late night talk show appearance was on "The Tonight Show" a few years ago -- along with then-fiancee Heather Mills. You can watch part of it on YouTube. Betcha he won't bring Mills along this time out.

    I wouldn't count on it. I don't think Paul McCartney exactly screams 18-49. Unless we're talking about women seeking lots of money.

    Sir Paul was on Conan (though Conan had to fly to England for the interview, so maybe that doesn't count) a few years ago.

    Bob Costas also had McCartney on for three or four straight "Later With Bob Costas" shows some time in the early 90's.

    Finally, Paul (and the 1990 "Flowers In The Dirt" tour band) did his "Unwired" shows in the Ed Sullivan Theatre in 1991.

    I dont know why but McCartney rubs me the wrong way for some reason. Im easily annoyable I guess. It was a good performance tho and Im glad he chose Dave to do it in.
