Paul McCartney
#4
No review yet in the local paper. So I found one online...(of many, just went with the first, I mean honestly what self- respecting rocker does not love Sir Paul?)
Words are not enough. That is just how great the evening was. And he played closer to four hours without a single break.

The McCartney live experience is a once in a lifetime opportunity. For approximately three hours, many of the greatest moments of the last 50 years of musical history -- not to mention the soundtracks of entire lives -- are magically brought to life as only Paul can do. Last year marked 40 years since Paul's premiere tour as a solo artist and these past four decades have seen him play in a staggeringly impressive range of venues and locations, including outside the Coliseum in Rome, in Moscow's Red Square, at the White House, a free show in Mexico to over 400,000 people and even a performance beamed into outer space! Having played with his peerless band of Paul 'Wix' Wickens (keyboards), Rusty Anderson (guitar), Abe Laboriel Jr. (drums) and Brian Ray (bass/guitar) for over ten years, Paul never disappoints -- as reviews of his last trek through Canada in November 2012 will attest:

"It took close to half a century for Paul McCartney to step on a Vancouver stage for the second time in his musical career, and in the span of nearly three hours at BC Place, Sir Paul closed the gap, looped the loop and gave his fans a timeless experience... McCartney never even paused to take a break, commanding the stage with more power, presence and stamina than pop stars half his age... Flat-out amazing." -- VANCOUVER SUN

"The last time Paul McCartney graced a stage in Vancouver was August 22, 1964. The show was cut short due to fear of a riot... There were times last night at BC Place when the 70 year-old could make you believe the clock was running backwards... The catalogue of tunes is positively staggering... McCartney really loves performing them too. Paul McCartney still does his legacy justice. Few of his living peers can make any similar claim. This was a bucket list gig and turned out to be one for the memory books as well. Thanks for that." -- VANCOUVER PROVINCE
