May 21 Live and Let Die: The Music of Paul McCartney Holland Center, 1200 Douglas St. 8 p.m., $25-$70,   I was recently privy to a marriage proposal that involved “Rock Band” and a version of Paul McCartney’s “Maybe I’m Amazed” that was pure magic. For this show, to paraphrase that tune, Omahans should prepare to be amazed at the way the Omaha Symphony helps Tony Kishman sing Paul McCartney’s songs. Conductor Ernest Richardson will lead the Symphony, and soloist and McCartney clone Kishman, in this Symphony Rocks survey of the great Sir Paul’s career. Kishman, widely regarded as the world’s foremost McCartney sound- and look-alike, is known for animating the great composer/performer’s songbook, from Beatles to Wings to his solo work.
