Sir Paul

I had the chance to go and see Paul McCartney in concert last night with my father in law. It was probably the best concert I have ever been to!! He played for 3 hours, had no opening act, and played tons of Beatles favorites. I am so happy that I got to go. I was very impressed with how good sounds for a 70 year old man. He is sure talented.

He opened the show with Magical Mystery Tour and closed it with The End. Both very appropriately placed. He did two encores. During one of the encores, he brought a fan on stage who had a sign that read "The only tatto my dad would let me get. Please Sign." So he did. He asked who she was, where she was from, and where he should sign. He signed her side rib cage. It was cool. He also had the Edmonton Police Service Pipes and Drums join for one song. That was cool too.

I was hoping he would play "Blackbird", and he did. The rest of his band was off stage, and he stayed out and did a couple of songs by himself, this being one of them. It was so good! They sang "Live and Let Die" and had some really awesome pyrotechnics to go along with it.

I had a really fantastic time. I didn't get home until almost 12:30, so I am pretty tired today, but it was totally worth it. Thank you Bumpa!!


  1. Em that's awesome! I didn't know you we're going to that! I would have loved to see it. Glad you had a good time! You deserve a night out every once in a while!

  2. Sounds like a fun time, glad you were able to go!

  3. Bumpa had as much fun as you did. Although I love the Beatles and Sir Paul, I find concerts too loud in my old age. I'm sure glad you could go. I knew you would love it. And being out with Bumpa isn't too bad eh? He's a pretty good date - at least I think so.

    1. Thank you for letting me go Arja!! I really appreciate it. It was awesome.
