    This is my 2nd McCartney show with the first back in 2002 and I must say this show was better in all aspects; performance, the stage set up and his choice of cuts ranging from pre Beatles to some lesser known Wings songs.

    His voice wavered at times, but by god this mans range and stamina are unreal for 77 years of age.

    At one point during the show he straps on his Les Paul and jams with the band in a tribute to Hendrix. Very cool and Macca still has the chops.

    All in all it was every bit what I expected and at 3 and a half hours it was worth every penny.

    I keep missing him due to timing issues etc. Id probably be like one of those girls from 60s footage. Crying and stuff. LOVE that guy.

    His tributes to Lennon and Harrison always get me choked up, especially the Lennon tribute.

    The guy in an international treasure and the fact he just keeps on going and giving so much back to his fans is incredible.

    We saw him last Wednesday in San Jose. Killer show. His voice was actually better than the show we saw 2 years ago. Best act out there touring right now, IMO. Rusty and Brian sounded killer and Abe Jr. is a freakin' beast and his high vocals are spot on.

    Rusty and Brian both have an impressive line up of guitars. Rusty played what looked to be a 1960s Silvertone/Danelectro and a Danocaster offset.

    Yeah, he played the Danelectro a lot. Brian's white SG sounded great through the Divided By 13 amps.

    Best live guitar tone I've ever heard was those guys.

    I wondered when that was or if that was ever going to happen. Very cool.

    Agree. We saw him in Green Bay in June and it was the best concert we've ever seen or will see. I could have listened to him tell stories for another couple of hours, easily.
