This concert was the second of two dates in Orlando, Florida.
[…] And the U.S. leg of McCartney’s 2013 Out There Tour put the spotlight on City Beautiful with two sold out shows at Amway Center and fans from all over Florida flocking to Orlando.
That’s right. For two days the most famous personality in Orlando didn’t have big ears and a tail. […]
There was no opening act. Just Paul, his band, and a nearly three-hour-long retrospect of a career spanning more than half a century. His voice carried songs ranging from Eight Days A Week, Long And Winding Road, Maybe I’m Amazed and Band On The Run with nearly the same range and all the feeling that inspired my early interest in music.
He played Paperback Writer with the same guitar he played on the record. He soloed the first half of Something on ukuele, which he said was how he and George Harrison first came up with the tune. And Mr. Kite and Lovely Rita, songs which he never performed in the U.S., were played to the delight of the crowd.
Pretty much everything was to the delight of the crowd.
The show around the show was also impressive. Cameras panned the stage and crowd from large booms, projecting a live feed onto massive projection screens flanking the stage. Colorful 3-D graphics, videos and photos from Paul’s history were shown on a screen behind the band. The songs Blackbird and Here Today were performed on an elevating section of the stage — rising during Blackbird, falling during Here Today. And the stage literally exploded in fire and pyrotechnics during Live And Let Die. The arena reeked and a veil of smoke hung around the stage for several minutes after.
The scope of the audience ranged from grandparents to teens. No one remained seated very long, if at all. Every pass of the strobes into the crowd revealed a waving, dancing, swaying mass of life. All inspired by one figure who filled every generational divide.
That’s what music can do.
That’s what Sir Paul did.
