Live and Let Die: The Music of Paul McCartney

FabFest Charlotte and Tosco Music are proud to present:


When Beatles producer, Sir George Martin, tells you that “You sound like Paul McCartney” and Paul McCartney himself comments that “You are a great musician”.......what more is there to say!

The critically-acclaimed show ‘Live and Let Die’ featuring Tony Kishman, veteran of the Broadway smash hit musical “Beatlemania”, is a dynamic full multimedia Concert Production that has set high performance standards as it celebrates the music of Paul McCartney.

Hailed by the media as “The Quintessential Paul McCartney” – Tony has performed to audiences worldwide and is regarded by “Beatlemaniacs” as the world’s best McCartney look-alike/sound-alike and with an amazing line-up of world class musicians; the show continues to gather glowing reviews and sell out major venues across the US.

With state-of-the-art sound, lighting, and a note-perfect, visually accurate recreation, you’ll hear hit songs from the Beatles catalog and Paul McCartney’s solo works including: ‘Hey Jude’, ‘Jet’, ‘Penny Lane’, ‘Live And Let Die’, ‘Yesterday’, ‘Eleanor Rigby’, ‘My Love’, ‘Let It Be’, ‘Maybe I’m Amazed’, ‘Got to Get You Into My Life’, ‘Silly Love Songs’ and many more...

Tony Kishman never fails to have enthusiastic sell-out crowds on their feet receiving countless standing ovations from the first song to the last.

"Tony Kishman is Sir Paul McCartney in his look, body language and commitment to his music." - Dennis J. D’Amico

“Watching Tony Kishman perform as Paul McCartney is as close as you can get to seeing Sir Paul himself.” – Danny Heller, Gayle Force Enterprises

“Tony Kishman is the quintessential Paul McCartney.” - The Long Island Advance

“I can’t imagine a better interpreter of the music of Paul McCartney than Tony Kishman. Tony is a total pro: consistently reliable, great collaborator, excellent musician and great entertainer. It’s always a pleasure to watch him wow the audience.” - Michael Krajewski, Music Director; Philly Pops Orchestra, Principal Pops Conductor, Atlanta, Houston, and Jacksonville Symphonies

“If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, Kishman's is the highest of compliments. In addition to sounding alike, he looks like him and plays a Höfner hollow-body electric bass.” – Rob Laney, Theater Jones, Fort Worth Texas

Live and Let Die: The Music of Paul McCartney is presented as part of FabFest, which includes the Tosco Music Beatles Tribute on Friday night and FabFest Daytime: a full day of live music, speakers and activities on Saturday. See for more information.

  • The music parties are an indie-music institution in Charlotte, so popular they often fill a 1,200-seat hall, with a roster of performers that has included everyone from American Idol contestants to The Avett Brothers.

  • What started 20 years ago as a jam session in John Tosco’s living room has bloomed into one of the region’s most unique regional events – and a coveted gig for unsigned artists.

  • A Tosco Music Party is a theatre in the round of sorts for acoustic musicians. It's a medium that breaks down artificial barriers between entertainers and audience.

  • Maybe you’ve never heard the new folk trio out of Chapel Hill or the dulcimer player from Appalachia. Maybe you’ll marvel over a double-necked guitar solo or a 13-year-old classical pianist. Whatever you’re seeking, this incredible, quarterly variety show will make you grateful to have John Tosco curating your musical adventure.

  • Think of Tosco Music Party as the musical equivalent of walking into Ben & Jerry's and saying: 'I'd like a spoonful of everything, please.'
