Paul McCartney rocked the Hollywood Bowl last night. For three hours, fronting a first class band, he executed one hit after another flawlessly. It’s nice to see that at his age, he can still put on a first class show, and arguably, this is the best he’s ever been. The new songs were pretty good as well. The audience was comprised of all ages and Sir Paul certainly made a bundle, with ticket prices as high as $375, but then how often do you get to see one of the Beatles. In these modern times, binoculars are no longer needed given the big screens. The sound was excellent. He hit the stage at 8:10 and played continuously until 11 P.M, closing with “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Heart’s Club” band.
Five musicians were able to duplicate the hits, there was nary an errant note played or sung. A good time was had by all, the weather was compliant, and I’m inspired to write more good songs.
