July 14th - Paul McCartney


Brian is awesome and got Paul McCartney tickets for my birthday. 

If you know me, then you know how much I loveeeeee the Beatles! This post is going to be really random about the night, because it’s 1:30am and I’m still hyped from the show. 

Seeing Paul live was amazinggggggg. He’s British and a singer. What else is there? Nothing!

Also, got a shirt with the British flag and young Paul on it. WIN.

It’s sad to think that I could never see a Beatles concert. Seeing Paul made it a bit better. He started off the night with 8 days a week and, right then and there, I knew it would be a wonderful night! Paul is 72 years old and still rocking it! He can play bass, guitar, and piano incredibly! There was a great mixture of Beatles songs and Wings songs. 

Here’s the full setlist from tonight: http://www.setlist.fm/setlist/paul-mccartney/2014/pinnacle-bank-arena-lincoln-ne-1bc1cda0.html

I only cried when Paul sang “Here Today” for John, wishing he could be ‘here today’. It was beautifully worded. 

I was pretty much excited the entire concert cause I had no idea which songs Paul would sing, Ob-la-di is so gooooood! Gotta be one of my favorite songs! McCartney’s new album NEW, isn’t too bad. I love Queenie Eye! O-U-T spells OUT! haha greatness. Also, ukulele version of “Something” for George Harrision. FEELINGS. 

“Let and Let Die” was a James Band theme song. There was flames. And fireworks. IT WAS INTENSE AND CRAZY AND AMAZING. Who else could have fireworks in the show? Only a legend!

Sir Paul McCartney ‘ended’ the show with Hey Jude, here’s a video:

Of course the night fully ended with, “and in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make”. 

Only my favorite quote ever from a Beatles song!
