Front page of Wednesday's Missoulian.
I headed to Missoula earlier this week to check out Paul McCartney at Washington-Grizzly Stadium. Worth. Every. Penny. Sir Paul still rocks. Sir Paul still puts on a great show. Sir Paul still impresses. When your catalog is as deep as his, I can only imagine how difficult it would be to plan a set list that ticks every box with fans. Sure, there were a few tracks from his latest record, “New,” and they sounded pretty good. He hit the highlights of his Wings years with “Band on the Run,” “Listen to What the Man Said,” “Live and Let Die” and “Maybe I’m Amazed.” He touched upon a range of Beatles material, from “I Saw Her Standing There” to “Let It Be.” Things got fun with “Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da” and “All Together Now,” more subdued with “Blackbird” and yes, he did “Yesterday,” “The Long and Winding Road” and “Hey Jude,” too/Carolyn Lamberson, 7 Blog.
