About

From NME, November 8, 2010:

Paul McCartney‘s first gig in Brazil for 18 years drew frenzied scenes this week, as fans set up a makeshift village in his honour while queuing to see the former Beatle.

McCartney played at the Beira Rio Stadium in Porto Alegre last night (November 7) to 66,000 fans. Some had started queuing on Wednesday night and set up what has become known as the ‘Paul McCartney village’, according to a spokesperson for the singer. […]

I love South American audiences. I always think I have Latin blood because I connect so strongly with their love of music and their love of rhythm and their love of melody, so I always feel like I have a very big bond with South American people and Latin people in general. So yeah, I’m bonding, man!

Paul McCartney – about the reaction to his trip so far – From NME, November 8, 2010

From globo.com, November 8, 2010 (translated from Spanish):

The wait is over. After 17 years without performing in Brazil, former Beatle Paul McCartney ended the long fast with a three-hour show at the Beira-Rio Stadium in Porto Alegre on Sunday night (7). It would have been historic just because this was Paul’s first performance in gaucho lands, but the singer surprised even his own team by inviting two girls from the audience to take the stage near the end of the show.

Don’t blame me. Everyone wants an autograph on their arm so they can cover it with a tattoo. Bring them here,” said the musician to the then incredulous stadium. And under the approximately 50,000 looks that filled the place, so did he.

From Paul McCartney’s YouTube video, November 10, 2010:

Paul’s first show in Brazil since 1993 drew some frenzied scenes. The 66,000 tickets sold out in a matter of hours when they went on sale last month. Fans desperate to get to the front of the stage to watch Sunday’s show had camped out from Wednesday night. Thousands of fans took over an area by the stadium entrance to set up camp just waiting for the doors to open. Locals referred to the site as the McCartney village. The expectant concert goers, passed the time by busking and listening to their favourite Macca tunes, dressing up as their idol and enjoying the glorious sunshine. Stadium workers even put up some portable toilets up to cope with the numbers!

From Whom The Bell Tells, November 12, 2010:

The short South American tour kicked off a couple of days ago on Sunday 7th November at the Beira Rio Stadium in Porto Allegre, Brazil. It was crazy, a really memorable night. We’ll never forget the mad scenes (checkout the PM.com film) and the makeshift ‘McCartney Village’ the fans had built whilst camping outside the venue for almost a week waiting for the doors to open. The coverage too has been off the hook. Endless front pages and TV reports that make our department very happy indeed.
