Never get jaded. T and I scored tickets to Paul McCartney at FedEx Field last night. He is breathtaking. A set list that balanced the classic Beatles with the fantasy of Wings and the nostalgia of his new stuff was interluded with personal anecdotes that made us all fall even more in love with him. Everything was punched up when he dedicated ‘My Love’ to Linda, catapaulting what was already one of my favorite songs into my list of top ten favorite concert moments. We snuck into field level two-thirds through to watch a stunning tribute to George, my favorite Beatle.
Paul is a dream: doing what he loves has kept him young and sweet to the core. The message came when, after the third song, Paul commandeered a few moments to drink it all in, in his words—’it’ of course being the profoundly magnificent symbiosis of playing for a football stadium of adoring fans. Sir Paul is simply the best at what he does, and his radiance and appreciation for life are pure and contagious.
