Just got back from Bonnaroo! I wrote out a report on my tumblr, so check it out if you so desire!

The short of it: AMAZING!

And I caught the soundcheck. I made this shitty video:

Same here! Didn't know you were going as well. Where are your seats? Mine are right behind the visitor's dugout on the 3rd base side.

 

Only 21 days to go…

Kedame!  Great report!  Seeing Paul live is a real mind-blower a-hard-days-night-paul-8 I know.  When I read your report…I got caught up in your excitement.  He's just SO amazing!  heart  How cool that you got to see James too.  I would love to see him.  He seems so shy and sweet.

ONLY  57 more days until I get to see him…again!  heart

Thank you! It really was amazing. James was very shy and awkward, but also adorable as hell. I have video of him that I can put up, but I filmed it vertically instead of horizontally. The quality is great, though, because I was so close.

I'm happy you get to go see him again! I want to go to the DC show, but the real world and lack of a buddy to go with means that I can't make it.

I would so go by myself if nobody else wanted to go with me. When I saw Paul at Wrigley Field, there was a girl next to me there by herself, and she was having the time of her life. I wanted to take the train to see Paul last year since my mom didn't want to buy tickets to see him twice in one year, but my she didn't want me going by myself. If I was older and didn't have to listen to her, though, I would have gone by myself.

Tomorrow's the night!!! I've got my tickets, got my parking permit bought and printed out (right across from Fenway!), got the day off from work tomorrow…it's going to be amazing!

It's making work today a bit of a challenge, though :lol:

Thanks, all! I had a hard time sleeping last night, I was so excited :) .  I'll be sure to write it up a little tomorrow and then I plan a more in-depth review later on.

I'm planning on tweeting out pics during the show, feel free to follow me @blackbookblur (I follow back, too 8) )

Just rolled into work, busy day ahead, and I'm exhausted! I'm still on a euphoric high after last night! I'll write up a proper review later this week but for now, first here was last night's set:

Eight Days A Week
Junior's Farm
All My Loving
Listen to What the Man Said
Let Me Roll It/Foxy Lady
Paperback Writer
My Valentine
Nineteen Hundred and Eighty-Five
The Long And Winding Road
Maybe I'm Amazed
I've Just Seen A Face
We Can Work It Out
Another Day
And I Love Her
Blackbird
Here Today
Your Mother Should Know
Lady Madonna
All Together Now
Lovely Rita
Mrs. Vandebilt
Eleanor Rigby
Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite!
Something
Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da
Band on the Run
Back in the U.S.S.R.
Let It Be
Live and Let Die
Hey Jude
 
Encore:
Day Tripper
Hi, Hi, Hi
I Saw Her Standing There
       
Encore 2:
Yesterday
Helter Skelter
Golden Slumbers
Carry That Weight
The End
   
Lots to write later, but off the top of my head:

-During Live and Let Die, there were huge bursts of flames and fireworks(!) that went off in the middle of the song and at the end…it was amazing! I posted a pic on my twitter (@blackbookblur) but it doesn't do it justice
-Not gonna lie, I cried several times, during Here Today, Something, Blackbird, and Hey Jude
-After the 4th song, he took his jacket off, rolled up his sleeves, and said "THAT is going to be the ONLY wardrobe change tonight!" It was all about the music.
-Paul alone onstage playing acoustic on Here Today, Blackbird, Yesterday was incredible…dead silent with 30,000 people quietly singing along while he played and sang them flawlessly
-He very simply said "I wrote this one for Linda" before starting Maybe I'm Amazed…again, I wept :lol:
-After the ~3rd or 4th song: "You guys are the new house record for Fenway Park!  *cheers from crowd* Know who we beat to set that record? *silence* OURSELVES!"
-Some person upfront held up a sign saying "I have my original 1966 Beatles tour banner" to which Paul said, "Sorry, that was before my time!"
-The massive crowd singalong during Hey Jude was simply amazing!
-Everyone was pogo jumping during the double-time end to Mrs. Vandebilt, including Paul!
-The 3-way guitar battle at the end of The End was fab
-"This one is for all the Wings fans" was how he introduced Nineteen Hundred and Eighty-Five…so good!
-He told a REALLY funny story about watching Hendrix in the late 1960s when Jimi good-naturedly ribbed Eric Clapton (who was also in the audience)
-Some of the footage/photos behind him during some songs were just brilliant. For example, the Beatles from the MMT film during Your Mother Should Know, pics of Paul and George together from throughout their lives during Something, pics of Paul and Michael with their mum and Linda with his girls/James during Your Mother Should Know, etc
-He played his original Beatles-era Hofner bass, Epiphone Casino, and Epiphone Texan acoustic (the one with the Detroit Red Wings sticker) for most of the songs. He also played his psychedelic painted upright piano that he wrote on in Cavendish Avenue during the 60s. (he also played his colorful Les Paul, a sunburst Les Paul, a Martin acoustic, and what looked like a Gibson 12-string acoustic)
-Paul's voice sounded UNBELIEVABLE!!! The man sings all of the songs in the original keys and STILL sounds flawless
-The band is INCREDIBLE…that's what playing together for over a decade will do
-At the very end of the show, massive confetti cannons shot out from in front of the stage. I managed to catch some, and even 30 minutes later outside Fenway Park, it was raining down on us!

I'm still grinning ear-to-ear…just unbelievable. Hard to fathom he just turned 71 (when I told my mum that after the show, she couldn't believe it, she still thought he was in his mid-60s! :lol: ). I'll write up an even more detailed review later but it was just the best. THE BEST!

 

He got rave reviews in the Boston papers, too:

Aw, thanks :D . I'm still literally shaking with excitement over it. "Magical" is so cliche, but in the case of last night I don't think it is, I think it's just stating the fact. I've never had an experience like that, ever, and I've been to some fantastic shows in my life.

I'm uploading the 120 pictures I took to a Flickr album…I'll share the link later.

Also, I managed to find a bootleg of the show already! If anyone is interested, I can share it out? I plan on downloading it when I get home from work later today so it won't be until then :D
