Music Monday: Paul McCartney

At the beginning of the month, I started sharing a Paul McCartney/Beatles song each day in preparation for the once in a life time opportunity of going to see Paul McCartney perform live.  Then I got sick, and I gave up.

BUT that doesn't mean that I love Paul McCartney any less.  On October 15, 2015, my cousin and I who have been Paul McCartney fans for most of our lives, got to see Paul McCartney in concert at the Bryce Jordan Center at Penn State.

Jaime and I waiting in line to get into The Bryce Jordan Center.  It was a chilly evening in PA, but luckily, we didn't wait too long!

Our seats were farther away from the stage than I originally thought.  I think Ticketmaster had the map wrong.  At least we were there!

SO excited!!

The screens began scrolling video and pictures, and the moment had almost arrived!

Seeing him was easier with the big screens


Just a little snippet of the song from a video I took

Paul played "Something" (one of George Harrison's songs) as a special tribute to George.  They showed pictures of George and Paul and the other Beatles in the background.  Cry much?

Here are a few other videos that I took at the concert:

I was so worried that he wasn't going to sing "Yesterday."  It is one of my most favorite Beatles songs!  Luckily, he did it during one of his encores.  
This concert was seriously such an amazing experience and opportunity.  I am so glad I got to share it with someone who loves and appreciates Paul McCartney as much as I do!  I am also very proud of myself for not crying through the ENTIRE concert.  I certainly shed some tears, but I was worried that I would sob the whole time.  This was definitely a once in a life time opportunity.
Have you ever gotten to see a musical idol in concert??

ALSO, don't forget to mail your Pumpkin Swap packages by tomorrow!! :)
