If God is currently walking the earth, his name is Paul McCartney. The only thing I can really say about this show is that it was perfection. I have never seen someone in my life that has put on a show the way he did. Growing up, I always knew that The Beatles were the greatest band ever. Seeing Sir Paul in concert was not only a huge deal for me, but it was incredibly overwhelming. This show was hands down the best performance I have ever seen. When you are in the presence of greatness, nothing else in the world matters. Seeing Paul McCartney is not only an absolute privilege, but it is most definitely the greatest place to be on earth. The stage presence that this man has is like nothing I have ever seen before. Building up to his first step on stage was something that had your heart racing because of excitement.
Paul McCartney played the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia on Sunday June 21, 2015 to what was an incredible, sold-out crowd. Paul played for nearly three hours and the crowd never lost interest for one second. The setlist was a huge mixture of songs by The Beatles and also Wings. There was even some solo songs that are just strictly written by Paul. The setlist contained nearly forty songs and at least twenty-five of them were songs by The Beatles. He played songs like, “Can’t Buy Me Love” and also “Hey Jude.” It was everything you would want to see from a Paul McCartney concert and then some. The setlist was absolutely unbelievable and even though I would have much rather him performed every Beatles song ever written, the setlist was still more than sufficient. Paul even played some songs in tribute to the late George. John and Linda.
This is probably the one and only time I will have to see Paul McCartney and it was an absolute honor for me. I would have been completely satisfied with seeing the opening song, which was “Eight Days A Week” by the Beatles. Out of all the shows I have been to, I have never seen show where the artist has the entire crowd in the palm of his hand the way Paul McCartney did. For what was easily the best concert I have ever attended, I can’t recommend seeing him enough. If Paul is playing in your area and you are able to get tickets, definitely get them. You will absolutely not regret it. Seeing the greatest musician alive is not something you can do very often.
Overall, Paul McCartney put on the best show I have ever seen and I cannot stress enough that you should see him while you still have the chance. It was truly an honor to be in the presence of greatness like this. If I am lucky enough again to have him play in my area, I will absolutely be there.
Concert Rating: 10/10
