Since it was my birthday, and since Sir Paul had graciously decided to play in Boston to honor that, I felt it was my duty to attend!

All kidding aside.... what an amazing show! ESPECIALLY when you factor in the fact that he is in his 70's!

His flight was delayed out of New York, so he didn't start playing until a little after 8PM, and played with only a couple of short encore breaks until 11PM.
... and 38 songs in a setlist is not too shabby!

His voice sounded great (although HOW Fenway Park was voted as one of the Top 10 Concert Venues in the US by Rolling Stone Magazine is beyond me. Security, entry procedures, crowd movement were all a complete Cluster Fark. And the press box structure over home plate is custom designed to provide a 3 second slapback echo from the sounds coming from the PA.

Still even with all that, this was definitely one of my Top 5 concerts ever. The insane pyro/fireworks during "Live and Let Die" is worth the price of admission alone!
