About

From paulmccartney.com, March 24, 2012:

Nearly two years to the day after setting the record for the fastest-selling show in the country’s history, Paul will then return to Mexico for the tour’s first date in the territory; Saturday 5th May at Estadio Omnilife in Guadalajara. The Guadalajara date will be Paul’s first visit to Mexico since his Up And Coming Tour in 2010.

From ourvinyl.tv:

A day in the life of anyone can become more than just a 24 hour senseless event. It can be transformed into a mind-tattooing 24 hour long emotional ride with a little help from your friends, family, music or a mix of all those elements beautifully crafted into a 3 hour long live concert. Luckily, there’s a knight in sounding armor capable of making it possible: Sir Paul McCartney. […]

After being a part of every single decade in music history since the 1960’s, a fantasy of many was to be able to go to a Beatles’ concert or at least to one of their last members’ shows (it had been this writer’s dream for years). Our best chance was Paul McCartney’s never-ending creativity and energy. Luckily for México, McCartney had a sold-out show a couple of years ago in México City’s Foro Sol. But we wanted –and needed- more.

That’s why, when a date in Guadalajara’s Omnilife Stadium was announced along with a date at México City’s Estadio Azteca, the first being held a couple of days before the other, many of us knew this was our chance. The only problem was, as always: money. Never before in this writer’s concert background had such scandalous prices been displayed: with tickets going from $50 to $900 and a VIP ticket that costs more than $2000. The smartest thing to do was to either go to Guadalajara –whose stadium is smaller than the México City’s, so the seat price could be cheaper and worth buying- or try to get a ticket for the Estadio Azteca after selling a kidney or two. So, anyway we went to watch Paul’s first performance in Mexican territory. […]

Then, just a little after 9 o’clock and with no opening act in sight, finally: we saw him standing there. Using his trademark Hofner bass and playing Magical Mystery Tour as the first of 41 songs. Junior’s Farm and All My Loving came right after, one timeless musical bomb after another. Wishing the audience a “Feliz 5 de Mayo” (which we actually do NOT celebrate) and greetings in Mexican slang whenever he had the chance, it was hard to believe this was one of the four legendary men that shaped an entire decade of music so many years ago.

With the throat and energy of a 20 year old inside the body of a 69 year old performing machine, you almost wished you had paid an extra amount of cash just so you could watch him a little closer. Why the hell are so many modern artists complaining about doing 70 minute shows? Sure, some dance and sing (come on, we know about playback) and play all the way through every night. But Paul McCartney switches between 6 instruments and plays for 3 straight hours, non-freaking-stop! He does it without taking that trademarked smile of his, dripping sweat and making a whole stadium his own. […]
