Miami, FL- What better way to spend a Saturday evening than to kick back and enjoy the music that legends are made of? If you didn’t catch the Paul McCartney show this weekend, you may as well stop reading because it’ll just depress you to read about what you missed.  

Sir Paul is Psyched to be in Miami

   Fifty-years worth of music filled a packed Sun Life Stadium as Paul McCartney jammed a  nostalgic tour of rock classics, covering songs from the Beatles’ collection, Jimi Hendrix’s Bigsby electric-guitar twanged hits, and George Hamilton’s suprising ukulele-laden acoustic classics. The show, perfectly peppered with historic anecdotes from the hey-day of the birth of Rock-N-Roll, blew the collective mind of a crowd that seemed not to know the definition of ‘generation gap’.   Young and old cheered and swayed in the stands as Sir Paul gave a lively performance that revisited many of the ’60s era Beatles’ hits and progressed to an all-out crescendo of classic and modern rock, punctuated with an outrageous pyro-technic display of fireworks and on-stage shooting flames during Live and Let Die.   Between songs, McCartney, a charming gentleman indeed, shared stories of his experiences with some of the greatest musicians of all-time.  He talked of smokey blackpools (British slang for dive bar) where Jimi jammed with an out of tune guitar and scanned the audience to locate Eric Clapton, so he could re-tune it between sets. He lamented on his love for his of wife of twenty-nine years, Linda, who succumbed to breast cancer in 1998 as he played a song he wrote for her. Another memorable moment was when McCartney played Here Today which poignantly captures his feelings of tragic loss for friend and fellow Beatle John Lennon after his untimely death in 1980, making the entire crowd a little misty along with his tear-jerking solo rendition of Yesterday.   All in all, the night was stupendous, albeit for the audience at Sun Life totally dropping the ball when McCartney prompted the crowd to sing the chorus of Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da, a song which fosters a style resembling that of Jamaican Ska artist Desmond Dekker. Better tighten up on your Ska and reggae influences, South Florida—you totally flubbed the sing-along with a rock legend. Embarrassing, to say the least!   Two encores of classic rock on a beautiful night by a BEATLE, no less, make for one amazing night in a Chronically Awesome lifestyle.  If you missed a music legend right in your own back yard…for shame!! As for the show?  Baby, I’m amazed.
