Hey hi!! I'm glad you enjoyed it!! Did he wear that killer red jacket?? heart

He did not.  He wore a Blue suit coat (I think) for like 2 songs, but it quickly got removed and then he sported the classy suspender look for the rest of the night.  It was REALLY hot last night.

I just got back from the concert at Wrigley.....

 

It was PHENOMENAL!    Words can not describe how incredible it was.  Truly a once in a life time experience. 

Details, details please!

Well, He played for 3 hours straight.  830-1130.    It was almost all Beatles songs, a couple of wings songs, the one fireman song.  He opened with Hello Goodbye closed with the Golden Slumbers medley.  It was pure adrenaline the entire show.  Wrigley field was sold out and cram packed with Beatles fans.  He told some funny stories such as when he played Back In The USSR in Russia.  And some Russian government official was saying how he learned the English language by listening to his songs.  Words such as Hello and Goodbye.  He did a small tribute to Jimi Hendrix by playing a bit of Foxey lady at the end of Let me Roll in (I think) and then told a story about how Jimi opened up a show by playing Sgt Peppers 2 days after the album was released.  He said jimis guitar was very out of tune, and he yelled into the crowd "Hey Eric! [Clapton]  Are you out there  I need you to tune this thing."

 

The fireworks during Live And Let Die were amazing.  highlights i would have to say was singing the AHHHHHHHHHHH during A Day In The Life, singing Give Peace A Chance, and the na na nas of Hey Jude.    It was one of those experiences where it seems like words have not yet been invented to describe it. by the end of the show I could barely see because of all the sweat that had been dripping in my eyes all night because everyone was dancing the whole show.

 

Simply phenomenal.

Thanks for the review Red. Sounds like a good time was had by all in "The Friendly Confines".

Did you manage to take any pictures or capture video?

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

My friend who came with to the concert took a good amount of pictures and got videos of Let it Be, Hey Jude, and I think Band On The Run  I will post them here when they are available.
