It started at 8:15 and we got out at about 11:30? I wasn't looking at my phone at the end, but to get through 40 songs takes time. I know it took forever to get a shirt because everyone in front of me was buying shirts for their extended family (and wanted sizes between XL and XXL), so I didn't get home until 12:30. (And had to be up at 4:30 - yay!)

The setlist looks fantastic.  I can't wait for the Cardiff show in June.


 

Another person based in Cardiff? Welcome to my little corner of the web! I'll be at the June show too - can't wait.

Did they run out of stock or something, Skye?  Good to know on the times; I'd rather sit in a pub and have a few than go inside the stadium and sit there for ages...also, this might be a stupid question because really who could do it, but did he have an opening band?

 

Hi Joe!  Sort of, yeah; I'm American/British (dual) and am doing an MA in Cardiff til September.  I swear I'm on your website several times a day...it's so good!  Do you have good seats for the show?

Do what you want to do, and go where you're going to…

Aha, a Cardiff Uni student? That's what brought me to the city back in 95. Still here...

Yes, we managed to get tickets for the central stalls block when they announced the presale. We're towards the back of block A5, right in the middle a-hard-days-night-george-9

It's a great city.  Did you catch Paul's son when he was at Barfly a couple weeks ago?  Really great gig, that.

 

Ah, nice one.  You're well close!  We're up in the gods - well, third row in U20 which isn't so bad, but still in the gods.  Being there is enough.

Do what you want to do, and go where you're going to…

No, I missed James Macca at the Barfly - I only heard about it on the day it was happening, and then forgot all about it. Glad it was a good show.

As for the stadium seats, I guess the screens will be enough to catch all the action. Plus if someone doesn't turn up you can probably grab their seats. In my limited experience of shows there they don't have many restrictions on where you can wander around.

Pure magic! Not a drop of rain... just a clear, chilly night in Hollywood... and it was sheer perfection!

I just couldn't believe how good Paul sounded... even at the end of the night when he sang Helter Skelter. He must be made of moon dust or something, because he's truly out of this world.

Anyway, a quick glance at the set list, I noticed one change. He didn't perform Two of Us, but he did do a sublimely beautiful version of And I Love Her (which is one of my all time favorite songs, so I was happy).

And yes, the show started late... scheduled at 7:30, but actually began at about 8:15, most probably because of all the late arrivers. (I love being at the Hollywood Bowl, but I hate getting there, kwim?) No opening band, but there's a great little video presentation to rev you up for the show... awesome versions of Beatles songs. (There was one that sounded like the Supremes... but I can't remember which song it was, something off With the Beatles, I think... does anyone know which song it was and who sang it?)

A lot of the people I was talking to at the show were all hoping Ringo would do a cameo, since he's been in town lately... but I kinda knew that wasn't happening (although it would have been cooooool).

I love Paulie!

iCaramba - Good to hear. I was thinking you might have to party like a hippy at Woodstock. I think the song was You Can't Do That. I was half hoping for Ringo too - especially after he said 'hi' to a couple of unnamed friends. Oh well.

jenn - No they had plenty of stock, I was just stuck behind a couple of whales who couldn't make up their minds with a bad credit card. blue-meanie

Have a look at this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A....._Liverpool

 

Glad the show was good! He really does seem to be on form these days.

EDIT – just published this on the second night's show, including what I gather was the full setlist: /2010/03/31/paul-mccartney-live-hollywood-bowl-los-angeles-2/

iCaramba, do leave a comment on the page if you're able to.

Thanks, skye and Joe. I'd love to get that "A Bit of Liverpool" album, but it looks like it's only available on vinyl.

Apparently there's a CD version but the transfer/mastering was pretty poorly done. Have this: http://www.mediafire.com/?ymyozyivdye

(You may need a .rar extract program. I use UnRarX on my Mac and Free Rar Extract Frog on a PC, both freeware.)

Now tell me something, those who have seen the latest tour: when McCartney does Sgt Pepper (Reprise) followed by The End, do you wish he'd do the whole Golden Slumbers/Carry That Weight medley instead? Or does it work well?

Going from Helter Skelter to Golden Slumbers? I'm not sure that would work. But you have a point. Hmm. It didn't bother me at the time and doesn't really bother me now. I think Sgt Pepper reprise* + The End lets the audience know that, seriously, we're done - good night.

 

*Did anyone add Sgt. Pepper Surprise to the menu?

Unlike John Lennon, I am always up for the medley... but the way he rounded out his final encore sounded really good and very appropriate, imo.

skye, what is Sgt. Pepper Surprise?

* No, I don't think so. Not sure how tasty that would be, actually.

iCaramba - it refers to this: http://www.beatlesbible.com/fo.....ased-puns/

I still toy now and then with the idea of opening a Beatles-themed vegetarian restaurant. It's too good an idea to let go. Sadly my knowledge of the restaurant industry is non-existent so it'll likely remain just an idea.

Hey, us Canadian vegetarians (like meself!) would make the trek over to England for a good veggie meal anyday! You've got the menu already, but what would the restaurant be called, I wonder?

Aha! Another veggie! Not sure about the name, probably something general like Eight Days A Leek or Tomato Never Knows.

Can't think of any clever names (Tofu of Us is the best I came up with)... but I'm a veggie too! If you ever open the place, I'm there! Especially if you have Beatles karaoke or sing-along nights...

There used to be a restaurant in West Hollywood called Yellow Submarine... it was so cool! When I was a kid, I used to beg my older brother and sister to take me there (wouldn't dream of going to such a cool place with the folks!)... too bad it closed down. I remember it was always crowded.

Guess there's still a Yellow Submarine in San Francisco... I'll check it out next time I'm there. http://photos.igougo.com/pictu.....arine.html
