So this blog post is all about McCartney!  I went to see him in concert with some friends and my mother in Philadelphia this past Sunday.  He was absolutely awesome!

First, he played for about three hours, starting with no opening act (which made me happy, heck when you’re Paul McCartney, why do you need an opening act?).  Hehe.  He played a lot of fan favorites, such as “Let it Be,” “Hey Jude,” “Let Em’ In,” and “My Love.”  But he also played some less common ones – my favorite being “Nineteen Hundred and Eighty Five.”  Paul also played a new one to his concert list for the audience – The Beatles’ “Ob-la-de, Ob-la-da.”

It was strange – we got one of the cheapest level tickets available, last minute because I happen to be travelling out to Philadelphia that weekend…they were side seating.  I have to admit, I thought it was going to be bad.  But it was awesome.  We were quite close to the stage,  just with a side view.  But Paul would often times change to the sides, so we got to see him well.

The most fun part of the evening was when a fan made it onstage and got Paul’s autograph on her back in sharpie!  I actually read online that she had a tattoo artist go over the autograph and made it a permanent fixture on her body.  I have to say, I’d do the same thing.  Hehe.
