[…] The concert kicked off at about 8:30, but the celebration started hours before with eager concert-goers pouring onto the University of Montana campus to see the rocker.
“I am expecting awesome, best concert ever. Once in a lifetime opportunity and I’m very thrilled that Paul McCartney is here,” said Brittany Belgrade of Missoula.
“They are absolutely fantastic from the get-go. You will be on your feet, you will not sit down for three hours, you will know every song, you will sing you will cry, you will laugh, it’s perfect,” said Cathy Torfason of Calgary.
“The best thing in the world is that we standing there when he came into the stadium, so we were from me to you away from him waving and he was smiling and waving right back at us,” added Cathy Tutty of Kalispell.
Sir Paul tore through a huge catalog of songs from his days with the Beatles, his 70s classics with Wings, and more recent solo tunes, putting his heart and soul into a nearly three-hour concert.
And the thousands of people inside the stadium weren’t the only ones enjoying the concert — fans young and old took to Mount Sentinel as early as 5 p.m., hoping to hear some of their favorite songs.
The switchbacks to the M were filled with fans all hoping to find the perfect spot and for some, the mountain was simply the more affordable option. But for others, there was something romantic about the venue.
“I thought, I’m going to sit on the mountain, be in the nice air and the blue sky and see the city happening, and just see it from here. It’s very Beatle-ish!” Yarrow Grace told us.
Paul McCartney interviewed by KMMS radio station, about why coming to Missoula:
Why not? It’s great man! I mean I really like coming to a place that we haven’t been before and, you know I have friends from Montana, so it’s kind of nice to see the place and check it out. You’ve got a good stadium, you know. That’s the starter. I talk to my promoter and he knows how to get me into good places. He asked me ‘do you want to go to Missoula,’ and I said ‘yep!’
