Did anybody else have a chance to see Paul on this tour? It was an absolutely amazing show.
I cried five times. At the beginning (opening song was “Hello, Goodbye”), when he had paid his tribute to John (sang Here Today), when he paid his tribute to George (saing Something while playing an Ukelele—Apparently George was a great Ukelele player.) And a few more times when I realized I was watching Paul McCartney singing and playing.
He played quite a few songs I didn’t expect him too. Including Getting Better, Mother Nature’s Son, Here There and Everywhere, and Let Me Roll It. He sounded great though, and we were all dancing and clapping and having a ball. It was a giant sing-along with 15000 of my closest friends.
It was a night that will always live in my memory. After years of hoping that he’d just do one more tour, and years of watching A Hard Day’s Night and the Beatles Anthology thinking “well, this is the closest thing to a concert I’ll ever be” this was so satisfying. So wonderful.
