On March 24 Shout! Factory will release A MusiCares Tribute To Paul McCartney, a collection of never-before-seen performances from the 2012 MusiCares Person of the Year tribute concert honoring Paul McCartney, on DVD and Blu-ray Disc.

During a sold-out gala event on Feb. 10, 2012, 18-time GRAMMY winner McCartney, along with a cast of superstar guests, performed some of the quintessential songs from his celebrated career. The 15 exclusive performances featured on A MusiCares Tribute To Paul McCartney include exceptional solo performances by McCartney of “Magical Mystery Tour,” “Junior’s Farm,” and “My Valentine”; a riveting medley of “Golden Slumbers,” “Carry That Weight” and “The End” by McCartney, with Dave Grohl and Joe Walsh joining the performance of “The End”; and incredible performances by a slate of GRAMMY-winning artists, including Alison Krauss & Union Station featuring Jerry Douglas, Coldplay, Norah Jones, Alicia Keys, Diana Krall, James Taylor, and Neil Young with Crazy Horse.

Proceeds from the sale of A MusiCares Tribute To Paul McCartney will provide essential support for MusiCares, which ensures that music people have a place to turn in times of financial, medical and personal need.

The MusiCares Person of the Year gala is an annual event that celebrates a legendary artist and raises funds for the MusiCares Foundation. This year’s honoree is Bob Dylan, who will be feted at a tribute ceremony on Feb. 6 during GRAMMY Week. The 57th Annual GRAMMY Awards will take place at Staples Center on Sunday, Feb. 8, airing live on the CBS Television Network from 8–11:30 p.m. ET/PT.
