Paul McCartney – On The Run Tour, Sat. July 16, Yankee Stadium

I’m sitting here in my Paul McCartney, On The Run Tour 2011 t-shirt, still glowing from last night’s historic Paul McCartney concert at Yankee Stadium. We have seen Paul McCartney live four times since the 2002 Driving Rain Tour at Madison Square Garden. Saturday night’s show was absolutely the very best of all those concerts. The Macca organization has their act down pat and they execute a live performance in top-notch, flawless fashion.

We are members of the Paul McCartney Fan Club and our tickets were great. We sat in the right field line, field boxes in Row 15 in direct line with the stage. The backdrop of Yankee Stadium was magnificent, what a great way to see this venue for the first time in our lives with our dear friend Paul McCartney, creating so much fun and excitement 🙂

We especially liked the express train service from Stratford, Ct. to Yankee Stadium East 153rd Street. New York City in co-operation with Metro-North-MTA make this a beautiful thing. It’s then just a scant 10 minute walk to the stadium.

We had a beautiful, fun and loving time last night. We were blessed with an exquisite summer evening, cool, breezes, clear night air and a full moon. Our favorite moments were “All My Loving”, the Wings songs, “Mrs. Vanderbilit” (Ho, Hey, Ho), and “Live and Let Die”, love the explosions, laser lights and fireworks for starters.

It was thrilling when Billy Joel appeared for the first encore to play with Paul and the band, “I Saw Her Standing There”.

Then to for Paul and company to close with the Abbey Road medley “Golden Slumbers / Carry That Weight / The End” and all that cool confetti at the outset was the capping moment to a stupendous evening.

According to WCBS-FM,

In an epic performance, arguably more powerful than Friday night’s, Sir Paul is leaving NYC wanting more.
