About

From Nasty Little Man:

“Paul McCartney didn’t just turn back time at the Astros ball field, he stopped the clock… The concert lasted nearly three hours, with McCartney never leaving the stage, tearing through songs from the Beatles, his time with Wings, evolving into an icon of popular music, the brightest star in galaxy…. The hits just kept on coming… the sound was overpowering and crystal clear, roaring to the back row and upper deck with ease. There was no need for him to introduce any of the songs. The audience could name that tune in one note… There haven’t been fireworks in the neighborhood like that since the Astros won the pennant in 2005.”–THE HOUSTON CHRONICLE

“Seeing Paul McCartney live is a lot of things. It’s communing with a spirit that touched millions and will touch millions for as long as humanity lurches forward. It’s hearing the bedrock anthems and the proto-everything blasts that made the past fifty years of music so damned interesting… McCartney’s set was an exhibition of the past 50 years of pop and everything that is hopefully to come. And would you believe that the man nary took a drink of water, rushed off stage for a costume change, an oxygen treatment, or an instrumental break for two hours? Even still his energy levels were off the charts, for anyone of any age… Some legacy acts touring these days, even a decade younger than McCartney, could never keep up.”–THE HOUSTON PRESS
