Well that was something. Concert of the year for me, do doubt about it.

http://www.beatlesbible.com/20.....m-cardiff/

I got the setlist at the end from the sound desk. I got two songs - I'm Looking Through You and Here Today - on video (the camera was a bit shaky in the second so I didn't upload). I've also got loads of photos I haven't gone through yet, but I might make a little gallery out of them.

Wow, the songs, though. What a showman - Macca and his band played for just about three hours, with energy to spare at the end. The highlight for me was probably Live And Let Die, but Hey Jude and Helter Skelter were wonderful. I've had Got To Get You Into My Life in my head all day too. So many memories.

Paul's concert in Hyde Park, London will be streamed on YouTube tonight from 8.30pm UK time: http://www.youtube.com/bornHIVfree


 

Hey! I'm glad you like it!! I'm looking forward to see the gallery!

 

I'm checking that concert today... a-hard-days-night-john-3

Here comes the sun….. Scoobie-doobie…… Something in the way she moves…..attracts me like a cauliflower… Bop. Bop, cat bop. Go, Johnny, Go. Beware of Darkness…  I believe in SH...

Watching the YouTube stream right now and reliving last night's show in Cardiff.

 

Whew.  There aren't words.  It may quite possibly have been the best three hours of my life thus far.  I cried two or three times – two for sure, but can't remember if there was another instance of tears.  haha.  And I got a scarf, which was epic for me 'cause I collect football scarfs.  My first Macca show (never had the means before) and I really hope it won't be the last…maybe next summer.  I know it's not certain, but something felt distinctly nostalgic about this, like he was saying goodbye without confirming it.  Just a feeling I had.

 

Joe, incredible, right?  


 

Oh yeah, totally. I didn't buy any merchandise apart from a programme, but I don't really wear band t-shirt etc. I was really pleased to get the setlist though. I waited by the stage afterwards and the roadies were all busy derigging, so I walked up to the sound desk and the girl on the mixing desk was happy to give it to me. Just a tip for those going to see him in future – don't bother the people on the stage – they have to disassemble everything as soon as possible and generally ignore those in the auditorium.

The concert was so good. It's funny, I've seen clips of him live before, and have heard the Good Evening NYC album, but there's nothing like actually being there. I watched the Hyde Park show on YouTube last night and it didn't really move me in the same way (it was great and everything, but didn't bowl me over). There's something just wonderful about hearing Paul play Blackbird, Hey Jude, Let It Be etc while you're in the same building.

I didn't put together a gallery from the Cardiff show as I was busy last night jailbreaking and unlocking an iPhone (quite an interesting process if you're a bit of a geek like me). I'll crop and upload the images tonight. Incidentally, here's the new boot-up screen for my hacked phone – I thought I'd substitute one Apple for another:

Wow, you were really close to the stage, weren't you? Now I REALLY want to go see him live. Ah well... For now I'll have to make do with my Good Evening New York City DVD. Or I could go to the US and see him... *strokes imaginary beard*

Well, the Ukraine girls really knock me out  They leave the West behind

The setlist is here (both a typed-up version and a scan of the actual paper one, minus Ram On): http://www.beatlesbible.com/20.....m-cardiff/

I've uploaded one song to YouTube already (which is embedded in the article) but I don't think I'll add any more. I need to sort out the photos though.

EDIT here's the setlist: Image Enlarger

Completely missed this write up.  Well done indeed, Joe.  I'll be linking lots of my mates to it!  

 

That video!  You weren't half close, man!  I'm afraid mine are much farther away, but I got some interesting ones (got him saying "diolch," the nanana in Hey Jude, etc.)...I don't expect you to put them on your site, but if you or anyone else wants to see them, I'll gladly upload them and throw some links up on the forum.

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

Do leave a comment on that page, and encourage your friends to do the same too. I love hearing people's memories of the shows.

A friend posted this on Facebook - it made me smile. Sadly I didn't see the incident in question.

"The oddest moment of Saturday's Paul McCartney gig was when some 50-year-old louts in Block U14 started fighting with each other, just as Macca broke into 'Give Peace A Chance'"
