dis Paul all ya want THAT is a killer set!

I thought it was funny how Bob Dylan poked fun at Paul McCartney for basically being a pop artist playing the same old songs all the time. Cmon Paul... Write a new hit and push the envelope instead of playing yellow brick road everynight like a washed up Vegas crooner.

Are some BV readers so clueless they need to be told which songs were written by The Beatles? Or is the reviewer just assuming BV readers are clueless?

(Hipsters, buy The Beatles entire collection).

It was great, decent sound mix given the venue, set was amazing and Paul was outstanding as always. All the haters don't know what the hell they're talking about. The guy's a living legend and puts on an outstanding show. The references to Dylan are funny btw. Amazing night, hope folks enjoy round 2!

U twit hipsters have to stop taking the bait or at least try not to compete on this thread. Do you know who you are dealing with? Beatle fanatics. They are the biggest idiots going. They are the ones saying "it was an honor to be there" "best show i ever saw" "sounded amazing" "this song or that song made me cry" You can't win an argument with them even though you know they have no idea of quality control or what's good or what is not good. They see every show McCartney plays and each one is the best they have ever seen etc. Just let them rant and know they are hapless dolts

Posted by Anonymous | July 16, 2011 12:23 PM

This geezer played a 29 song set list with 2 3 songs encores. That alone is impressive for any professional musician.

Rock on Paul.

Paul deserves respect. 70 years old, and the guy still plays 3 hour shows. I hope people will still care about a fraction of the bands mentioned on BV, 50 years from now.

Not a huge fan, but Paul is certainly deserving of respect, especially in this case.

Posted by Anonymous | July 16, 2011 3:06 PM

Vapid, arrogant, superficial, style-obsessed, talentless, flash-in-the-pan, poser, hipster douchebags are the reason many people are put off by art in general. They mistakenly equate it with the real deal, but it's a pale imitation at best. The worst piece of shit the Beatles, or Paul McCartney solo, ever produced is infinitely better than the best that crowd has to offer. The man's a musical genius, and his influence is seen and felt in just about EVERY musical genre. Get a clue... Dumb fucks...

Great show by the way! :)

Worth price of admission, but really ticket prices did not justify location of seats. I snuck to $140 section, and it was not much better than my $70. Great, great set, but no one was dancing. Hope.people get off their asses tonight. Totally lame.

Posted by Blg | July 16, 2011 6:49 PM

6:49 person: I was dancing in section 216! Maybe you were too riveted to the show to notice? To all who don't have tix for tonight -- go anyway! You can hear the entire concert from anywhere within, say, a quarter mile of the Stadium. Phenomenal show!!!

I'm tired of people making a big deal out of the 3 hours thing. Your impressed by what, his endurance? If he swam three miles a day would that be impressive too, but who gives a shit. He's in good shape. He plays for a long time. For the price of a ticket he better play a long fucking time.

But I forgot, Sir Paul does it all for the fans because he "don't care to much for money"

paul has spent his life writing songs -- timeless, hit songs -- and giving his time and energy to entertaining the whole world...if you can't dig that, you're seriously fucked up...

you may not dig his style of music, but you cannot deny his genius...

dylan has also had an outstanding career, but a very different kind of career. having said that, anyone who's seen dylan play more than once knows that he's been in locked into a certain groove himself for many years now, too, so he doesn't have much room to talk...

dylan has always been snarky about the beatles, for whatever reasons, but deep inside he knows paul is also another living legend...

we're all gonna be broken-hearted when both of these guys are gone...

Thank you for posting the 7/15 set list. It is a little different from the Saturday show, which I went to with my husband, three teenage kids and three of their friends. We all loved it! We were sitting in nosebleed seats, so we had an amazing view. Really beautiful as the sun was setting. I don't get the point of deciding who's hip and who's not. Kind of a waste of time and energy. Where we were sitting there were toddlers to grey haired folk. People of all kinds. Maybe even a few hipsters.

Posted by Sarah | July 17, 2011 9:32 AM

friday night was top shelf. while i wouldnt give too much credit for a 27 song setlist since some of the songs are two minutes...but the fact that he played for three hours was incredible. everyone was dancing in my section and the energy was intense. one of the few shows where i want to see the artists hits from his original band (cf. robert plant...where i want to her his solo stuff rather than rehased zep covers) get a copy of this show and enjoy. it was an A+.

And i am as hip as it gets. so i'm right

Remember when the press would ask the Beatles if they would last? LMFAO Paulie and Ringo do what they do best and that is enjoy making music. Neither needs to cash in and they are both blessed for having met John. If it weren't for John there wouldn't have been The Beatles. It was John who had the dream and sadly when we lost John the dream was over. However, the music lives on. Thanks to Paul, George and Ringo.

Lennon was always the brains, the talent, and the boundary pushing ambition of The Beatles. McCarney would have been singing English showtunes at the seaside resorts had John Lennon not scooped him up and let him play bass. And if you idiots don't agree, I don't really care because it won't change facts.

The idiot who said Paul hasn't written any new songs is obviously ignorant of what he's done for the past 41 years since the Beatles breakup in 1970. There isn't a soul on earth who has written more hits than him nor who's still relevant on the world satge some 50+ years after his debut with the Beatles....end of story!
