I love the look on his face when he is talking about Sgt Pepper and he mentions that it was 50 years ago.

Goofball taps his head when he says "touch wood".

What a cutie.

We are mid-negotiations on tickets but I'm fairly sure there will be Macca-seeing this year 😀

I had a look through the ticket prices and they are quite reasonable. I won't get the most expensive tickets but might get the middle priced tickets.

We've snarfed the tix, looks like we'll be on one side towards the back behind FOH but up a bit so we'll have a good view of the stage plus not so close to the PA. Quite a bit further away than Ringo but we did well, cos the preorders are almost gone now. Six months to wait!

Speaking of preorders, the scalpers are already scalping the presales paul-mccartney-facepalm_gif but I know we weren't stung thankfully. He hasn't played here since 1975 beatlemaniacs_02_gif

I got my tickets. They are on the side looking down at the stage. It says it could be a restricted view but I think Paul will spend the majority of the show out the front of the stage so I think I will be able to see him but just being there is good enough for me.

Paul has announced second and final shows for Sydney and Melbourne. I might get cheap tickets for the second show depending on my financial situation.

I'm going to go to the second show - just as well we didn't get tickets until today! 

Note: I haven't technically got tickets yet, but we will by tonight.

 

Oh, and one of my neighbours (who is obsessed with Paul) got front row tickets to the second show - I'm kind of jealous!

Thanks for that info. I added the 2 dates to the list in post 1 of the thread.

Glad our Aussie forumpudlians are going to show Paul some love. heart

A Long, Long, Long time? Sorry, wrong composer...

I think it's fair to say I'm incredibly excited. But I still don't have tickets - hopefully I get them tonight.

I hope you get tickets. Now that a second show has been announced it should be less pressure to ensure that you get tickets.

Half a lifetime for some of us. I can't believe it was 1975. But back then he wouldn't play Beatles songs, now they're most of the show! paul-mccartney-thumb_gif

Bearing in mind Paul might not be able to tour much longer, this probably will be the last time he comes here.a-hard-days-night-paul-10

Seeing Paul in the 70's would have been awesome though with or without Beatles songs.

I wouldn't have been a fan when he toured in the early 90's. I had tickets to see him in the early 00's but he cancelled that tour.

I don't believe it. The tickets are sold out (that is, the affordable tickets have sold out). The Wednesday's concert was only announced today, and the tickets only went on sale 8 hours ago.
