Paul McCartney is getting ‘Out There’ in San José, Costa Rica!

Third live show of 2014 announced!

Thursday 1st May – San José, Costa Rica – Estadio Nacional

Paul has announced details of the third gig on his forthcoming tour of South America taking in San José, Costa Rica on Thursday 1st May. The show will mark Paul’s first ever concert in the country.

From For Whom The Bell Tells, May 16, 2014:

La Nacion
Unbeatable! Many agree that Paul McCartney’s concert in the National Stadium is the best concert that has ever been hosted in Costa Rica.

Tico Times
I think it will take many of us several days to digest the experience. After all, whether you’ve seen him in concert before or not, and regardless of your age and sense of what is cool or hip, this was no ordinary event. This was Paul McCartney in Costa Rica.

Two weeks since arriving in Uruguay the final show of this leg was upon us. Another first visit for Paul and a big deal for Costa Rica.

Costa Rica were loud, really loud. The audience were screamers, they had such an amazing night.

Before the show Paul had a met with a small group of competition winners. In the group were two 17 year old girls who told me they had an important school exam the following morning at 7am but their parents totally understood the significance of Paul’s show and allowed them to go. When Paul asked them about this he joked that they should go home immediately and revise.

What Paul doesn’t get to see on these trips are the moments like when he leaves a room after meeting these winners (or any fan for that matter) and they totally lose it. People hold it together when they meet him but the moment he’s out of the door it is a different story. They call their loved ones, they cry, they smile, they hug each other – the impact is huge. It is a major moment in their life that they’ll always remember and will always talk about.

I saw the same 17 year old girls at the end of the night rocking out to ‘Helter Skelter’ and it is safe to say they were having the times their lives!

The rest, as they say, is history. Paul flew home straight after the show whilst the crew retired to the hotel for a few drinks to toast our boss. Tired and ready to go home we all agreed that we are privileged to be part of team Macca and get to experience these incredible moments that, like the fans, will stay with us for ever.

From Youtube:

During Paul’s Soundcheck in Costa Rica, three members of the Guatemalan band, The Tefeatles, had the honor and privilege of going up on stage to perform Get Back with the man himself!! This is a video compilation of Chaz (lead singer), Fede (lead guitar) and Jake (bass) rocking out with Sir Paul! No video of any kind was allowed during soundcheck and Paul’s crew kept shutting us down, but at least we got to sneak in these few clips 😉

From Twitter – Costa Rica – thank you for such a great welcome!
