Paul McCartney Concert

  • It was a night to remember. The last night that Candlestick would ever hold another concert. The last night that Paul McCartney would ever perform there. It was also a celebration that the Beatles last performed at Candlestick park in August of 1966. I was never much of a Beatles Fan until I got invited to go to this concert. When my friend first asked me to go I declined. I later thought it over and decided since it was the end of an era for Candlestick park and the last of one of the Beatles to perform there that I would attend. The traffic was more than we bargained for. We left for the concert 2 hours early and found ourselves still stuck in traffic and wondering if we were ever going to make it to the concert at all. We parked the car at some point and caught a bus the rest of the way. Mr. McCartney was even nice enough to delay the concert so the people stuck in traffic would not miss the event. I was dying of thirst by the time we reach our destination. I grabbed a coke and we went inside. The place was absolutely packed and the music was playing. I have been to many concerts in my day but this one was truly different. I felt totally relaxed! The crowd had a really friendly vibe and when everyone sang along to the songs we actually knew the words. Not only the words but everyone seemed to know the melodies to the point of actually harmonizing together. It was strange. I have never been to a concert where the audience actually sounded good singing together. It was a night to remember and Paul did indeed keep his word when he said we would be closing Candlestick down in style. I am glad to have been a part of history and glad to have become a Beatle fan!
