Beatlesmania

July 21, 2008

Back from Québec ; I did get to see McCartney’s show, and…whoa. Just whoa.

It’s one thing to hear the songs on records, and it’s a whole, whole, whole other ball game to hear Hey Jude (or any number of other tracks – Let it Be, Yesterday, Back in the USSR, Eleanor Rigby, Penny Lane, Michelle etc – performed live by McCartney (ok, let me amend : by McCartney, his accompanying musicians, and, at least in Hey Jude’s case, by three hundred thousand spectators).

This was one amazing experience, and well worth the waiting, the cramped conditions (during the waiting, not so much during the show), and the long night ride back home (we only just arrived).
