I took a little video of every song - this morning I counted...38 songs. Jimmy Fallon was there with Lorne Michaels celebrating his birthday, so he played "Birthday " for Jimmy. Overall, a totally amazing experience - he really works his ass off to put on a big, giant, satisfying show that spans his whole career. Highlights for me were "A Day In The Life ," "I've Got A Feeling ," and of course "Live And Let Die ."

Now that I've seen Paul, I have to see when Ringo is coming to town...

If the showtime says 8 pm, what time does our beloved Sir Paul go on?

Oh, say about 8:30 - in my experience at least. However, you don't want to be late and miss the really cool video that plays before he makes his way onto the stage.

I don’t know about other venues but at the show I saw there was also a DJ on from about 7:45 or so playing Beatles mashups and covers. It was pretty cool.

I was at the Syracuse show, which was absolutely wonderful. He started at 8:01 so I wouldn't assume that he starts late every night. I don't know how he did a 3 hour show like that--it was hot as hades in the dome and must have been much worse on stage. No air conditioning--at least one person fainted from the heat while standing in line waiting to get in the venue.

It was my first McCartney show so I have nothing to compare it to. His voice was quite creaky on a number of songs but nobody cared. I totally missed the first half of Hey Jude , as the pyrotechnics from Live And Let Die set the scaffolding on fire and I (along with much of the audience) was focused on whether the vague shapes climbing the scaffolding were going to be able to put it out.

It was a fantastic show--so glad that I splurged for the tickets.

Because of my lack of tickets, one of my Beatley neighbours showed me this link that enters me into a trivia contest for the chance to win 2 VIP tickets.

Obviously you have to be lucky enough to be selected but stranger things have happened.
