Buffett, Bon Jovi and McCartney join Clinton for star-studded fundraiser
Paul McCartney’s appearance at a Hillary Clinton fundraiser the previous evening finished with a top pick form of “Hey Jude” including Jon Bon Jovi and Jimmy Buffett. The occasion, held at Buffett’s home in Sag Harbor, purportedly cost $25,000 a ticket – inciting McCartney to joke that “this is the first occasion when that I’ve paid to hear myself sing.”
His four-melody set started with the Wings hit “Jet,” trailed by two different Beatles tunes, “Can’t Buy Me Love” and “Lady Madonna.” You can see fan-shot video of “Hello Jude,” politeness of TV host Andy Cohen, beneath.
Bon Jovi sang “Who Says You Can’t Go Home” from 2005’s Have a Nice Day, and joined Buffett for a rendition of the Van Morrison favorite “Brown Eyed Girl” and Buffett’s “Margaritaville.” Buffet’s set, which reportedly lasted more than an hour, also included “Cheeseburger in Paradise.”
McCartney posted a photo supporting Clinton in her race for the U.S. administration against Donald Trump prior this month on Twitter, including that “She’s with me” – a play on the natural Clinton battle motto. The pair met before McCartney’s Aug. 17 execution in Cleveland, after Clinton’s motorcade halted by the Quicken Loans Arena. They were said to have talked about the Olympics, their families and – obviously – her progressing effort.
