From RollingStone, November 12, 2010:
Paul McCartney played the second of two sold-out shows at Estadio Antonio Vespucio Liberti (River Plate Stadium) in Buenos Aires on Thursday night, part of the South American leg of McCartney’s Up and Coming Tour.
According to Pablo Toledo of the English-language daily the Buenos Aires Herald, McCartney’s three-hour, 35-track set spanned his entire career, and included songs from his Beatles days as well as his recent solo project The Fireman. “He may not have the top highs he once boasted, but his voice is otherwise intact and much wiser: when he recorded ‘Oh Darling’ he used to go to the studio fresh out of bed to get the raw edges the song required, complaining that earlier in his career he would have done it in a flash; today, both the grit and the velvet are there on command, and his instrumental prowess is in top form,” Toledo wrote.
From La Capital, translated from Spanish, November 11, 2010:
Paul McCartney chose to open his second and final show in Buenos Aires with “Magical Mystery Tour”, that Beatles theme that from his first lines was: “Roll up, roll up for the mystery tour”. And the 45,000 fans who filled River Plate Stadium on Thursday night joined that trip without hesitation.
“Hi Buenos Aires, good night, Argentinians, we are very happy to be here!” fired a smiling McCartney who played again after 17 years in Buenos Aires. Thanks to a series of “help memorias” that he read, he spoke in Spanish for much of the show and was even encouraged to a very porteño “Thank you very much, che”. There was also no lack of the rigorous display of an Argentine national football shirt with the number 10 on stage, which led him to exclaim: “I’m Diego!” (by Maradona). […]
While there are rumors about a possible return of the former Beatle to the region between March or April to play in those Latin American countries that were left off the tour – such as Chile, Peru and Colombia – the truth is that for now there is nothing confirmed and that is why the shows of Buenos Aires were also attended by people from other countries. According to Chile’s “La Tercera” newspaper, for example, some 500 Chileans traveled to Argentina to see the show. […]
Sir Paul McCartney’s impressive display of energy – which did not even pause for five minutes throughout the concert – his good humour and playful and even dreamy spirit, which led him to make the audience chant all sorts of slogans and dance on stage, dominated throughout the show. He even smiled at a few brief verses (“Three rabbits in a tree/playing the drum/yes, no, that I’ve seen it”), with which he remembered learning some Spanish in Liverpool at 11. […]
