I wasn't sure what I was in for when I went to the Paul McCartney "Out There" Concert last night but found out that it was one or actually the best rock and roll concerts I have ever been to!
We arrived early to have dinner at the stadium and that was great timing on our part. People were still arriving around the time the concert was suppose to start. It started late but they had music playing with pictures and art work streaming from the large projector screens. The Beattle's photographs and video clips that were shown brought back memories of long ago.
We had an awesome dinner at the stadium and a great view. Paul's crew and the Safeco stadium really worked in "harmony" to make a spectacular show entertaining and comfortable for sitting or standing over 3 hours. Paul made a point to publicly thank everyone associated with setting up and working the show!
Paul McCartney can play and sing like it was yesterday! He played songs from the Beattles, Wings and some new songs. He came back on stage several times and even surprised the crowd with a local surprise! He brought on stage former Nirvana band members to rock out with him and his band members! It excited the local Seattle crowd to see Nirvana play and Paul just hit it out of the ballpark singing a Nirvana song with them! They continued to play a few more songs together with Paul and his band.
Paul finally ended the night or should I say morning since it was well past midnight with another song and fireworks again( they didn't skimp on the fireworks - they went off several times at the end of the show).
When we bought the tickets I actually thought we paid too much but after going to the show I have to say it was money well spent to be entertained by a music legend that can still rock out after decades of playing and singing. I would recommend seeing this concert. It truly is art in the making!
Keep rocking Paul - we love you in Seattle!
