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.Stuart Bell
