And we certainly hope you’re gonna have a good time!! Finishing up the first U.S. part of his world tour last week, we can only watch in awe how Sir Paul is still going strong at 71 and performing for almost three hours, giving so many fans the greatest concerts they will ever see. For those of you who saw Paul in the past 3-4 weeks, we are sure you noticed many young fans in attendance. For all of us baby boomers, who have seen him in concert over the years, we know how great and special those shows have been. For the younger fans (10-30 years of age) who see him now, WE know they have just seen the greatest concert they will EVER see in their entire lives! Paul is simply the best at what he does. He has no equals. We are forever grateful and thankful for his long and winding trip he has taken us on. Happy Birthday, Paul. We love you.
Another amazing, unforgettable concert on Saturday night, in Brooklyn. It was Paul’s first time performing in this borough, at the new Barclays Center, and he brought the house down. There are not enough superlatives to describe the show. He gave us at least 6 or 7 songs not in the last tour, and most that he NEVER performed live previous to this 2013 Out There Tour. The A/V show prior to the concert was mostly brand new and the lighting effects was first rate. Paul and his band hit the stage at 8:50PM to a thunderous ovation and they ripped into Eight Days a Week, one of the new songs. For those going tonight or later this summer, I won’t mention the songs here (if there are any of you left who do not know the impeccable set list). For those of you who don’t want to know, it is hard, not impossible, to avoid)! Paul mixes up about three dozen Beatles, Wings and Solo songs in his set that didn’t end until around 11:30PM. We saw many FEST regulars there and also many parents who brought children to see Paul. We can safely say that these youngsters experienced the greatest concert THEY WILL EVER SEE!!! Tonight, our entire family is going (Mark, Carol, Michelle & Jessica) and we are counting the minutes! After headlining at the Bonnaroo Festival on the 14th, Paul is off for some concerts in Europe and returns to the states in early July for another series of shows, beginning at Fenway Park in Boston on July 9th.
If you have seen Paul on this tour, tell us what your favorite highlights were. We know there so many to choose from!!
Reports are coming in from Orlando, Memphis, Austin and Tulsa, where Sir Paul and his band has wowed audiences with a seemingly unending reservoir of energy, playing lots of Beatles, Wings and solo songs spanning the past 50 years. His last stop on this leg of the tour is this Saturday and Monday, June 8th & 10th at the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn. I know we will see so many of you there. We cannot wait – ONLY 2 & 4 DAYS TO GO! If you spot us, please say hi!. After headlining at the Bonnaroo Festival on the 14th, Paul is off for some gigs in Europe and returns to the states in early July for another series of shows, beginning at Fenway Park in Boston on July 9th.

Saturday, April 20th, Paul and Nancy McCartney met up with Ringo and Barbara Starr for dinner at Mr. Chow in Beverly Hills. The couples look fabulous as usual and were also joined by Joe Walsh and his wife (Barbara’s sister) and Jeff Lynne. We hope the fans and media gave them the privacy they deserve. With Paul about to start another tour this year and Ringo just completed tour of the Far East and considering another leg of the tour, perhaps in South America, they should have much to talk about. Whatever they discussed, it is always wonderful to know that they get together, as brothers would normally do. Peace and Love.
