Paul McCartney - 2010, 2011, & 2012

Ringo Starr - 7 July 2012, and I went to Hard Rock Café to pray for peace and love with him that day

I may as well post this.  When me and my dude went to see Paul in November he made this video of the concert.

We were in the nose bleeds but it was worth every penny.  heart

Enjoyed. Great idea to take it from getting the tickets on!

Have to get around to putting up some of my more interesting gigs up here. I was floating around on the edges of the London scene late 80s/early 90s and so got to see a lot of great bands in their early days at small venues. Two gigs that stand out for me took place within a few weeks of each other in 1991 - both at small-ish venues. Bingo Hand Job at The Borderline in March, who it was known would turn out to be REM long before they walked out on stage. Then, two months later, 10 May (2 days after my birthday, which gives a clue to my username), Paul McCartney playing The Mean Fiddler. 20+ tracks supporting his upcoming Unplugged album. Those tickets - once the gig was found out about (it wasn't really known about but I knew someone who worked at the Fiddler) were a total barsteward to get hold of, involved lots of favours, and begging. "It would just be a really nice birthday treat, please, please, please!" It still remains the most remarkable gig I have ever seen.

The McCartney one was a truly fantastic experience. Up near the front, maybe 15-20 foot from the man. Maybe around a thousand in the audience, give or take (I have trouble remembering actual size of some of these venues). Gig in two parts, first acoustic, second electric. Mean Woman Blues; Be-Bop-a-Lula; We Can Work It Out; San Francisco Bay Blues; Every Night; Here, There And Everywhere; That Would Be Something; And I Love Her; She's A Woman; I Lost My Little Girl; Ain't No Sunshine; I've Just Seen A Face; and Good Rockin' Tonight. We thought that was it, we'd got acoustic and that was what we expected but then, the electrics appeared. My Brave Face; Band On The Run; Ebony and Ivory; I Saw Her Standing There; Coming Up; Get Back; The Long And Winding Road; Ain't That a Shame; Let It Be; Can't Buy Me Love; and Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. (Got the tracklisting from a bootleg of the night that's listed on BootlegZone, didn't know there was a bootleg of the night! Wah! Wah! Need to find that!) Just an unforgettable night. At times I was close enough to see the whites of his eyes!
