I hope Macca comes to your town @Beatlebug. It's funny to think that I posted earlier this year wishing that Paul would tour Australia and now he has. It is surreal. 

@Ahhh Girl Well I would probably watch some light hearted telly rather than something like the Walking Dead.

Very nice article by New Yorker writer Sarah Larson about going to see Paul at Madison Square Garden in September.

She really captures what it's like to see Paul. You kind of get sucked into it, and there are moments when you do suspend disbelief entirely and other moments when you don't (at one point Paul claims I Wanna Be Your Man was the Stones first no. 1 and my Beatlemaniac friend simply could not help rolling his eyes saying NO IT WASN'T and for some reason I still find this moment hilarious)  but at the end you are completely captivated and then you realize he did actually play forty songs on a bunch of instruments and he's seventy-five and your brain melts and you still can't quite put this experience in any perspective and maybe you never will.

Paul McCartney received the 2018 Helpmann Award for 'Best International Contemporary Concert' for his One On One World Tour that arrived in Australia in December 2017.

The award was accepted at the ceremony by Frontier Touring's managing director Michael Gudinski with Paul McCartney also sharing a special video message - "Thank you very much for this Helpmann Award... it's a fantastic award, I'm very chuffed. I want to thank the people at Frontier, the people at Marshall Arts, and most of all the audiences of Australia. You were brilliant. Thank you very much, see you soon!" - Paul McCartney

"It was a twenty year mission to get Sir Paul McCartney . He nailed it every night..."
- Michael Gudinski

Launching in the United States in 2016, the One On One Tour played 41 shows across 12 countries to more than 1.2 million people, before heading to Australia. With six sold out stadium and arena shows the tour was attended by almost 200,000 fans in Perth, Melbourne, Sydney & Brisbane.

Congratulations on the award, Sir Paul.

He definitely deserved the award. Well done Sir Paul (and I like the bit when he said 'see you soon'....)

Congratulations on the award, Sir Paul.  

And 250,000 people came to greet the Beatles in Adelaide in 1964. That's mental when compared.

The most unusual casualty was Marilyn Arthur, 14 years old, of Nathalia, a Victoria country town, who screamed so hard she burst a blood?vessel in her throat.

Anyone heard of anyone else doing that?

My great-grandmother lived in Nathalia until she died a few years ago. I wonder if news spread throughout the town about that? It was a very small town back then. 

Back on topic: that would be incredibly painful. I definitely don't know of any similar cases!

Seems like many of the original 1960s Beatlemaniacs would've done. I seem to think I heard of that happening, perhaps...

I believe in Beatles - David Bowie
