Finally home. 3 hours of fabulosity. Everyone sang all the words to everything (except 2 new songs). People used their mobile flashlights like they used to use lighters. The light show was amazing. I didn't expect the fireworks though! And one minor disappointment, no Temporary Secretary.

It was one of the best nights of my life last night. It astounds me how someone of his age can still perform the way he does. The drummer Abe Laboriel Jr. was hilarious with his facial expressions and backing vocals and was a beast on the kit. It was great just to see people happy and enjoying themselves.

As I piece together the gig in my mind, one of the outstanding things was Paul's ability to communicate to a few thousand people in a natural conversational way. I know his patter is somewhat standardised, the same stories etc, but thats not how you feel when he's talking to you. Glamour is a very old word for it, and he's still got it in spades. And his voice was much, much better than youtube had led me to believe. When I got on the train home a number of us were telling the conductor like little kids how great it was.

Did I mention Mull Of Kintyre with an actual pipe band? Has he done that since Wings?

I heard an interview on the radio this morning that the band was actually bagpipe students from a very prestigious school in Melbourne (Scotch College). 

I'm looking forward to tonight. Seeing as no-one from last night took any photosa-hard-days-night-john-3 I'll have to take somea-hard-days-night-paul-10a-hard-days-night-george-10. What a shame!

I wasn't into taking photos, but half the stadium was filming the bloody thing anyway. paul-mccartney-facepalm_gif Paul might refer to that tonight 😀

Best concert I have ever seen. I loved watching Paul change his instrument after every couple of songs. 

I'm not ashamed to admit that I cried a couple of times throughout the show because of how much these songs mean to me and because some of the songs have a special meaning because the are connected to John Lennon, George Harrison, Linda McCartney, and George Martin.

I'll just mention that before the show, there was a DJ with neon headgear spinning Beatles hits in some kind of dreadful medley with weird sounds added to the songs, the most bizarre thing I've seen in a while.

I am thrilled the three of you got to see Sir Paul rock out. The sites and sounds will linger in your minds and will be a happy place you can always go to.

Chris Holmes, @ewe2. Paul likes him a lot. He's been with him for about seven years now.

In 2013 he included a 1 hour 45 minute plus version of his "Beatles/Paul McCartney/Wings DJ Set" on his Soundcloud for anyone interested in listening.

Oh right, well the acoustics did not serve him well, I'm afraid, being a soccer stadium there was slapback delay and cavernous reverb on everything and it sounded terrible. I'll give the soundcloud a listen then!

I also liked the way they ended the show after the encore, mysterious smoke and Paul flashing V-signs before he disappeared a-hard-days-night-paul-7 Because otherwise it would have been a weird pantomime of "well we gotta go" "OH NO YOU WON'T" a-hard-days-night-paul-11

I just checked setlist.fm because my sister went and saw Paul in Brisbane and they got Jet and we didn't. But no one got Temporary Secretary which seems to have been dropped from the list after Japan sooo ahdn_paul_01
