M is for Sir Paul McCartney. When I found out that Sir Paul was going to be performing at AT&T Park, home of our San Francisco Giants, I knew we had to get tickets! He is a Beatle, after all and my favorite to boot!
It was easy for us to get to the concert as the train station is just a block away from our house and it takes us to a couple of blocks away from the stadium. No worries about parking.
Sir Paul was very engaging with the crowd. The last time he had performed in San Francisco it was at Candlestick park with the Beatles. He joked about our cold summer weather. He talked about John Lennon and sang a song he had written about him, “Here Today” and also played George Harrison’s, “Something.” He sang “My Love” in memory of his wife, Linda.
He sang 39 songs and had some pretty good pyrotechnics, especially with “Live and Let Die.” I think he could have sung another 39 songs and we would have stayed!
There was a really good write up about it in the newspaper so I included that. It was a great show.
Since I never got a chance to see the Beatles in person, I am really glad we got to see Sir Paul. Oddly, I don’t have any desire to see Ringo Starr, unless of course he’s with Paul. I think a great show would be Paul, Ringo, Dhani Harrison and Julian Lennon. What do you think of that?
