A dream come true

Paul McCartney played at Comerica Park in Detroit yesterday. I went to the show and stood outside the gates.

I was really far away but I could see and hear everything! I was blow away by how good the show was. Paul is 69 years old and his voice sounds as good as his days with the Beatles.

Seeing Paul McCartney was unreal, never thought I would see a real live Beatle, and he played mostly Beatles songs...(which I wasn't sure if he'd do).

here is my view this funny guy in the picture

and since all of my videos are pretty bad (very far away and can't hear the sound), I put up these from Youtube, which are the best ones I can find from the show.

The End


This is a random video of people leaving the stadium. There were over 30,000 people there.

Here are the Bealtes in 1964 playing at Olympia Stadium in Detroit. The screaming was so loud no one could here the show, not even the Bealtes.

Its hard to pick my favorite part, but I really loved hearing A Day In the Life. I like when he dedicated Something to George because they did a slide show of pictures of the two of them throughout Beatles history. I also love the encores. Carry that Weight/Golden Slumbers/The End. It was really awesome hearing Back in the USSR, Lady Madona, Elenor Rigby...ahh they were all really good too! Just all together a really awesome show.

And last but not least, here is the article from the Free Press about the show:

 “I’m gonna take a moment here to drink in these Detroit vibrations.” -Paul
