From Twin Cities Daily Planet:
[…] While McCartney was clearly well-rehearsed in not just his set list but his audience banter, his routine never came across as forced or robotic. Rather, his built-in quips and motions were part of his appeal, as seeing a man with half a century of performing under his belt still giving the sort of love and energy that he had to give on stage was incredibly impressive. McCartney was clearly in his element as he alternated between the typical “(X City) you’re a wonderful crowd!” routine and stories of his past with The Beatles and other musical acts, delivering very interesting stories the likes of which could only be attributed to a man of his age and experience in a very youthful and energetic manner more suited to an individual half of his age. In these moments you could see the young man who changed the world as part of The Beatles in the 72 year old man who stood on the stage, as his youthful charisma escaped his aging frame and held the audience in an indescribable way that only a truly masterful performer could.
On a cool, damp summer night in Minneapolis, Paul McCartney came to town for what might be the final time. One of the last icons of an era long past performed with a gusto that was almost unreasonable for his age and brought to Target Field, a place more known for athletics than artistry, a performance which will not soon be forgotten by any of those who had the fortune to attend. McCartney’s performance was not a tribute to a bygone era but a reminder of the timelessness of music and the endurance of beauty and joy. It was a gathering at a generational crossroads where old and young came together to declare that yes, this was good, this was worth celebrating and cherishing and remembering. It was an affirmation of McCartney’s legacy as an artist.
