They endured a long, cool night, slept in their cars (cat style, with one-eye open) and waited impatiently with bated breath for the ticket sales to begin.

Welcome to Beatlemania Truro style, still alive and kicking more than 40 years after the Fab Four took North America by storm in 1964.

“I got here last night, I think it was around eleven,” said Sylvie Michaud, 36, who drove up from Westville to be first in line for when the Paul McCartney tickets went on sale at 9 a.m. at the Atlantic Superstore in Truro.

Lloyd (‘Ozzy’) Osborne of Truro was next in line when he arrived at the store’s parking lot around midnight.

The pair we’re among approximately 50 people who were on hand when tickets went on sale for the July 11 concert at the Halifax Commons.

And why all the fuss?

“Because it’s Paul McCartney,” Michaud said, a sentiment echoed by Osborne.

“I’ve been a Beatle fan a long time,” the 59-year-old said. “To me it’s the longevity (of McCartney’s music).”

“The music is timeless,” added a still squealing and excited Michaud.

“I could jump all day,” she said, leaping in the air for joy.
