    Amazing show! The weather was beautiful, and the roof was open. I saw Paul in Vancouver last November, and he outdid himself this time! At 71 years old, that man’s age does NOT show. Three hours of pure musical bliss, I loved every single moment. Seeing the surviving members of Nirvana was great, a total surprise! I had no idea! Hearing “Long Tall Sally” was totally unexpected, and definitely the highlight for me, being one of my all time favourites from the “old days”. :D I hope he comes back, I will go a third time for sure! <3
