From Blog Do Feroli, April 27, 2012 (translated from Portuguese):
Paul McCartney’s second concert in Recife from the beginning was marked by many doubts, since his announcement was made even though the first day had not sold out. To compensate, the Government of Pernambuco distributed about 2000 tickets among its employees and the organization modified the configuration of the stadium, reducing the prime runway and the bleachers, giving the impression that the stadium was full.
The sun continued to shine in the capital of Pernambuco, the strong heat continued to punish Recife, which meant that Sir Paul, who came down from his suite around 2:20 pm to exercise at the hotel gym where he was staying saying “Good Morning”, delayed again the soundcheck.
With shorter lines and much less turmoil than the night before, Arruda seemed more comfortable but still showed that he still needs a lot of changes to receive an event of this size.
The smaller audience for the show was also reflected in the number of people who paid the exorbitant price of the VIP HotSound ticket, which entitles them to a vegetarian lunch, watch the sound check and enter the stadium before the gates open for mortals. To compensate for the little audience (usually limited to 200 people) and not to embarrass Sir Paul, the organization decided to release the soundcheck to the first 50 in line for the Premium track. It might have been nice, but I would have asked for my over $ 1,000 back if I had paid for the ticket. […]
Paul’s voice did not seem to feel the hours of singing, but it was clear that he spoke and interpreted at a lower volume than 2010, for example. In fact, the sound quality of this second performance far surpassed the opening night. Point for Pablo and the entire team responsible for what comes out of the stadium speakers.
End of show and the traditional shredded paper rain mixed with real rain, which served to wash the soul of fans who traveled from various parts of the country to watch the greatest composer of the 20th century and probably the 21st century as well.
