So I Saw Paul McCartney Last Night

Outside the United Center
As the headline suggestions, I saw Sir Paul McCartney last night. And as expected he put on a spectacular show! I won't do a "proper" review of the show, because I wrote a review of Sir Paul at Wrigley Field in 2011, and what I previously stated about his live performance then is still true today. (You can read it here)

What was really cool about last night's performance was the people I went with. For my friends, Michelle and Brian, last night was their first experience witnessing Sir Paul live. Watching their expressions on their faces was priceless. The looks on their faces was the same look I had back in 2005 when I saw Sir Paul live for the first time. Aw and giddiness. When you see Sir Paul live, you really don't want the show to end, because you having having pure unadulterated fun.

Another highlight for me was being able to hang out with my best friend Kevin before the show. (He works for 97.9FM The Loop) It was his first time seeing McCartney live too, and he couldn't wait to tell me how much fun he had at the show. I've included the set list from the show. I highly recommend you check out Sir Paul's new music from the album NEW. It is phenomenal live.

You should make the song list into a spotify playlist.
