Just want to say, it was a night we’ll always remember. Sir Paul McCartney and his band totally entertained a packed house for over two hours. Gave three encores and made me cry. One of my favourite moments was when Paul sat at the piano for ‘Let It Be’. Such a talent, he changed instruments almost every song.
The entire arena erupted in song for ‘Mull of Kintyre’ where the Edmonton Police Pipe & Drummers joined him on stage. Thank you Dana Koch for posting the Thursday night performance on YouTube. Please enjoy.
There are few artists in the world that transcend all age groups and musical leanings. A young fellow behind me sang his heart out through the entire show and knew every word of every song. He was so full of joy, it was awesome to see. Sir Paul has an ease and grace that made you feel so special, even though he’d given a show the night before to 14,000 other fans. We sat pretty far away and although pictures were tricky I don’t feel we missed a thing.
While the band rocked the crowd with iconic songs by the Beatles and Wings upfront, another fabulous show played in the background on their giant screen. A creative montage of video clips, home movies, Beatles moments, family moments, beautiful art and uplifting messages of world peace accompanied each song. When Paul got emotional performing a tender song he wrote for John Lennon, I completely fell apart. Needless to say,
the night was pure magic!
de nacht was pure magie!
la notte era pura magia!
la nuit était pure magie!
Ночь была чистая магия
