Imma kinda ruminatin' on whether I should attend one of the Paul McCartney shows at Citifield this week.
It would be the first concerts at the New York Mets new home.
On the one hand, it could be pretty cool to be at a quasi-historical event. And it could be cool to see Beatle Paul.
On the other, weightier hand; I saw "Sir Paul" back in the early 90's from great seats in an arena. Do I really need to sit in a giant stadium and watch a video screen? Additionally, the nosebleed tix are about $60 and appreciate steeply the closer one gets to ground level.
I'm gonna keep perusing the broker sites and ebay; if I can score a couple of tix for $20 each, I'll grab em. We'll plant ourselves up high, get hammered and have a good old time, if the price is right. The next day, we're going to the Warped Tour, where for $30 or so we'll be able to see 60 bands (and, I like NOFX a helluva lot more than the Beatles!).
I guess the "see him before he's dead" concept will lure many folks to the show, as well as the "first show ever" pitch. It'll be an event for sure, but I sorta hate events.
Besides, didn't Paul die back in 1966?
Meanwhile, back at the ranch, here's some stuff from a long time ago...
