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:

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.

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.

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
