I noticed at Glastonbury a few times Paul turned his guitar/bass to face skywards i.e frets facing up. Perhaps I haven’t been paying attention but I’d never seen him or any other guitarist do this before. A few times he did it mid song just before playing an intricate bass riff so I guess he was checking where on the fret board his fingers were. 

It’s odd because there are usually markers on the side of the guitar neck which tell you which fret you’re at and seems strange for someone with Paul’s skill and experience. Anyone notice this or have any theories?

  

Yes!

I noticed too. And I’d recently seen him do it in some other concert, though I can’t remember how old that footage was. He really turns the guitar 90 degrees when he does it.

I wonder if it’s a nervous tick. I imagine he’d be devastated to play the riff off key. He must know the nut-end of the fret-board easily by touch, but he goes higher up much more rarely. So maybe it’s belt-and-britches?

I cant watch the concert in Germany. Is there any chance one of you can provide it?

BTW: I was hoping Paul would continue his Got Back Tour into Europe. Is there any info on that? I really would pay good money to see him in Germany.

  

I was lucky that a friend was able to set me up with a tunnel to watch it live. I still haven’t seen In Spite Of All The Danger (why did they cut it paul-mccartney)

 

I’m feeling certain I’ll never get to see him live, and obviously won’t get to see him in his prime. Can anyone recommend a good film of a live show?

My hot take is that after the Beatles split they went down the paths of spiritualism, solipsism, alcoholism, and Paul McCartney

 Yeah, I’ve been waiting for this! True, I won’t be able to get to the concerts, it’s far away from my country, but I can be happy for those who live in Australia! 

And I’m 100% sure that there will be John Lennon on the screen

Ahh, my dream is to get there…

Great that he’s coming to Australia. No Perth though. a-hard-days-night-paul-10I’m sure Optus Stadium, the best stadium in the country, would’ve sold out. But I guess it’s a logistics thing.

I thought this could be of interest to any fellow Australian McCartney fans. Some pretty good prizes, like tickets, invite to sound check, etc

Brasilien Tour has been announced for December. Make sense since its warm there then. 

I really hope for a Spring/Summer European tour. Fingers crossed. 

At least give us a great Bluray/4K release!

The Tour is about to start now in Australia. So far nothing has been said about 2024. 

I really hope Paul gets a good rest over new years and returns to Europe with his tour in 2024. I really really really want to see him!

Unfortunately not. He hasn’t come to my State and I’m working. But I’ve been checking out clips. I tell you what, seeing the I’ve Got A Feeling segment makes me really bittersweet, imagining an older John and Paul being together today on stage for a concert, or anything. Just being together. How incredible it would’ve been.

@Timothy That would have been amazing. 

You can say what you want about Paul. The way he talks about John, he way he holds up his legacy and his music is the way of a true friend and admirer. He loves John!

@KyleKartan Yes, despite John and Paul having arguments and disagreements sometimes, deep down they always loved and respected each other no matter what.

Paint a mural…meet a Beatle. (x-posted)

Sir Paul McCartney visits mural dedicated to his work in Newcastle

Be sure to watch the video at the link.

mural.JPGImage Enlarger

The mural, which includes references to several of McCartney’s musical numbers, was painted by Mitch Revs and commissioned by Venues NSW.

McCartney was quick to praise Revs’ work, telling the artist that he’s done “great work” and calling the mural “beautiful”.

He was then given the opportunity to add his own personal flair.

“Let’s see what we can do, I’ve never done this before,” he joked, before Revs replied “I’ve seen your artwork”.

“New career man, let’s go,” McCartney added.

In the end, he made his mark with two smiley faces — one in the middle of the iconic Yellow Submarine — accompanied by his initials.

“I did this, all my own work,” McCartney said cheekily as he posed for the photo, thumbs up and smiles all around.

“Taking all the credit, I love it,” Revs replied, grinning, before quietly thanking the Fab Four legend.

I really love Paul gets to see these things. I’m glad he’s being shown so much appreciation and love as the legend he is. He’s still the same fun, down to earth guy after all this time.
