From Cincinnati.com, July 11, 2016:
Paul McCartney has dedicated his life to creating the soundtrack to generations.
The 74-year-old former Beatle, who still has some of the goofball kid he must have been in Liverpool, had the full attention of every person in the capacity crowd at US Bank Arena on Sunday night from the opening guitar chord of “Hard Day’s Night” to the final line of “The End” – “And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make.”
In the intervening 2½ hours, McCartney played 37 more songs (21 Beatles tunes), told tales from the Fab Four’s early days, paid tribute to fallen mates John Lennon and George Harrison, and played straight man to four members of the audience who caught his attention with homemade signs.
He did this while leading his powerhouse four-piece band through a timeline that began with “In Spite of All the Danger” by the Quarrymen (the pre-Beatles group that included McCartney, Lennon and Harrison) through “FourFiveSeconds,” which McCartney co-wrote and recorded with Rihanna and Kanye West last year.
Raise your hand if your 73-year-old father/grandfather/friend/neighbor has made a record with RiRi.
[…] For people who remember the acrimonious breakup of the Beatles in 1969-70, nights like this restore their faith in the magic of that music. For younger folks who grew up listening to a band that has not existed in their lifetime, they never doubted the power of that music.
For McCartney, who was present at the creation, that music has always been magical and powerful. And it’s obvious he isn’t finished making and playing it.
