Sir Paul McCartney was given $1 million to perform at Baron Capital’s Investor’s meeting at the Metropolitan Opera House, according to the New York Post. Carrie Underwood also performed for 4, 000 investors and the two followed a performance from stars of “Showboat” featuring Vanessa Williams.
A source insisted the price tag was not unexpected, “It would have cost $2 million to get both McCartney and Underwood, and that’s before you’ve paid for their bands.”
A spokesman for Baron Capital said, “It was fabulous. Paul McCartney put on a good show. There was not one person sitting down the whole time.”
After all that music, various speakers in Baron’s portfolio gave talks, among them, Edward Woodward from Manchester United, James Cashman from Ansys and T. Andrew Smith from Brookdale Senior Living
