Yeah man, thanks. The kids saw him way back in 1990, when they were quite young. They keep calling me all week and emailing me. I think they might be as excited as I am---erm...that's not possible, LOL.

Well...I didn't think anything could surpass the April 29 show in Cleveland, but this one tonight did for me. Unbelievable. Snafus like the late sound check causing us to stay in the lobby a full 50 minutes before they'd let us in, to the horrific traffic jam after are just minor inconveniences for me that I know I will forget soon. What I will NEVER forget is how much tighter I thought the band sounded. The better backing vocals. The awesome bass line copied excellently by Brian Ray on Getting Better. The superb vocals and spanish guitar doing the string part on She's Leaving Home. The playfulness of the band throughout the evening. Tighter--bigger--better all the way around, and the 4-29 show was the best for me-until tonight. Paul seemed a bit tired early on, but came alive very soon to give an awe inspiring performance. The band just sounded better on the standards. The only minor "not as good as last time" was the Driving Rain guitar songs that sounded not as fresh as it did 5 1/2 months ago. And that was minor, trust me. Let Em In was great, as was Michelle. The guitar duel at the end was longer and more competitive than before. Rusty was spot on all evening. Abe was unreal and seemed to take a larger share of the backing vocals this time around. Brian Ray was the most improved IMHO. Great guitar work, and I didnt remember him taking so many lead turns--maybe i just didnt hear it in Cleveland. My family enjoyed the show as much as I did. They were amazed at the performance. Even the between song patter was a bit different in spots and seemed fresh to me. Paul's high notes were something to behold. Even the pyrotechnics of Live and Let Die were pumped up.

All in all, a night I'll never forget. More in the AM if I can remember anything else. Oh yeah...Paul signing not one, not two, but three albums before leaving the stage finally (The last one being Ram!!!).

If I had to pick the absolute highlite of the evening it was She's Leaving Home. I swear to you that his vocals were far better than the original and Abe and Paul doing the "SHE...IS LEAVING" was perfect, as was Rusty and Brian on the Lennon part. Musically, it was stunning. Vocally, it soared. Emotionally, it touch an entire audience like nothing I've ever seen. Amazing.

FInally, it is inconceivable to me that this 60 year old man can do this 4 nights a week at such a high level and sustain the quality of show that i witnessed this evening. It's good to alive and a fan of Sir Paul. It's even better to have witnessed his greatness twice in one year. If I die tonight, I'll die a very happy man.

Thank you, Steve.
Excellent review.
Spanish guitar on She's Leaving Home? Sounds fabulous!!!
Where were you and your family sitting? Could you see him good?
Thanks for the news about the programs being cheaper. I hadn't heard that yet.
2 weeks from today for me! I'm trying not to play Paul or Beatles Cds as I get too crazy.

I'm certainly not an expert on types of guitars, but Rusty used a nylon string smaller acoustic, and he played the opening string part with it and it was unreal. We were not THAT close...Just left of center, in the stands, medium priced tickets---we could see just fine. I could have had 3rd row for what it cost to take 6 of us, but it was much better seeing the reaction of my kids. I was about 12 rows back on the side in 1990 in Cinti, so I've done that before.

Something else that i remeber that was new. He used the old right handed acoustic, (pic guard on the TOP) restrung for a,lefty on Yesterday. He said it was used on the Ed SUllivan Show for the same song way back when.

I'm STILL buzzing about this show. The program is different with lotsa of new stuff---tour moments and pics from the first leg, as well as Geoff Baker's take on the whole thing, which is great.
